Film noir merges with romance in this visually gorgeous Vietnamese drama about the relationship between a gangster and a young, gay opera singer.

A charismatic singer specialising in cai luong, a modern form of traditional Vietnamese folk opera, falls hard for a brutish debt collector who forcefully collects money from his opera troupe. Despite their different backgrounds, the two men share great chemistry, and an unexpected romance seems to blossom…

A popular award-winner at film festivals worldwide, Leon Le’s ravishing drama, set in 1980s Saigon, blends genres to create a unique queer tale of love, loss and tradition, with a superb central performance from V-pop star Isaac as the passionate singer.

Victor Fan from King's College London joins us to introduce the film.
