Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 05/03/2002
"...Its directness is the movie equivalent of hot, fresh popcorn. The intricate choreography of the relationships is elegantly handled, and the directors don't stint on the eloquent torture that can make soap opera so delectable..."
Los Angeles Times - 05/03/2002
"...FLEEING BY NIGHT is an exquisite love story directed with admirable subtlety and sensitivity..."

Product Description:

Filmed in Beijing and New York, FLEEING BY NIGHT tells the story of Shaodung (Lei Huang), an American-educated cellist who returns to China for his arranged marriage to Ing'er (Rene Li) the daughter of a wealthy opera house owner. Once back home, however, Shaodung finds himself drawn to singer Lin Chun (Chao-te Yi), whose impassioned rendition of the opera "Lin Chun Flees By Night" strikes a deep chord in both him and his fiancée. The three become friends, with Ing'er unaware of the deeper attraction between the men. Unfortunately Chun is trapped in servitude to the master of the company, who pimps him out to a rich playboy (Lai-jen Tai), and Shaodung is deeply closeted, which hinders him from acting on his desires. Set primarily in the late 1930s (but ultimately spanning decades), the film effectively uses China's pre-revolution cultural contrasts to parallel its characters' own identity crises. Directors Li-Kong Hsu and Chi Yin allow the story and performances to unfold deliberately and delicately. Homoerotic content is fairly minimal in the film, which focuses more on rich period detail and how the joys and sorrows of love can shape the course of personal histories.
