What's worse, a gay man who doesn't love you, or a straight man who loves you? Partly inspired by Scud's own life story, Permanent Residence
follows Ivan (newcomer Sean Li) and his impossible love with the
straight Windson (Osman Hung of EO2). Hitting it off after their first
meeting in a sauna, Ivan and Windson develop an ambiguous, intimate
relationship that follows them through years of ups and downs, fallouts
and reunions. The two share a bond deeper than any other, but Windson
cannot take the final step and reciprocate Ivan's physical love.
The first chapter in Scud's gay film trilogy, Permanent Residence
situates its core story of pained love amid existential rumination and
an almost amusing fascination with mortality, making the film as
artistically intriguing as it is emotionally wrenching. Tech credits are
top notch with Herman Yau as cinematographer and Teddy Robin on music.
The film features location shooting in China, Thailand, Australia, and
most notably Israel and the Dead Sea, which provide a crucial setting
for the film's unexpected conclusion.
Τι είναι χειρότερο ένας gay που δεν σε αγαπάει ή ένας straight που σε αγαπάει?
Ημι-βιογραφική ταινία του Scud. (και μάλλον η καλύτερη).
