藍色大門 - Blue Gate Crossing

藍色大門 (Blue Gate Crossing) is a 2002 film out of Taiwan starring Kwai Lun-mei and Wilson Chen.

The story follows 3 high school age students as they try to figure things out. Meng, Lin, and Chang. Meng and Lin are best friends. Chang has an interest in Lin. Lin doesn't want to get involved with Chang. Chang uses Meng to get to Lin. Chang falls for Meng. BUT. BUT....Meng doesn't want Change, but Lin.

Yes. It's a lesbian based movie that isn't overtly lesbian as almost all screen time is with Kwai Lun-Mei and Wilson Chen.

A artsy fartsy film all the way and a simi reflection of Taiwan beginning its conversation with homosexuality in media. I first watched this film back in 2003 or 2004 so Kwai and Chen being so young wasn't a distraction.
