Plot: Inspired by a scandal in the Happy Valley area of Hong Kong, in which a wealthy playboy was found to have taken thousands of photographs of police officers posed in various states of undress, BISHONEN is nothing less than a romantic homage to male beauty: Stephen Fung plays a handsome prostitute whose vanity is breached after he falls in love with an equally attractive young cop (Daniel Wu) who is closeted from his old-fashioned parents (Kenneth Tsang and Chiao Chiao) and wary of forming new relationships due to events in his recent past, events which finally catch up with him in the worst possible way.
«One thing you should always be able to demand from a film, no matter what kind of film it is, is that it's going somewhere or has something to say. "Bishonen" comes up short in both departments. What could have been an intriguing and slightly dangerous love story, is instead a truly trivial single-minded look at gay life.»
