End of Love (Page 2)


deutsch>>

END OF LOVE portrays Ming's life. At a Christian rehab center a friendship blossoms between Ming and Keung, a former drug addict. In flashbacks we learn about Ming's journey, beginning with his over-protective partner, from whose clingy arms he flees, commencing an adventurous odyssey through the gay underworld. His friend Cyrus pushes Ming into gay prostitution, which soon sends him through the highs of total abandonment of drugs and a party life, to the seedy lows of incarceration. In rehab, Ming gets to know Keung, and is increasingly drawn to him. Meanwhile his past is slowly revealed. But their deep friendship is only short-lived. When Keung´s girlfriend breaks up with him, it all ends in yet another tragedy. The director Simon Chung reflects upon his second feature: “The main character in the film, Ming, is based on the experiences of a friend of mine, a part-time male prostitute who attempts to balance his job with his love life. The film is not a social-realist drama documenting the plight of gay prostitutes, rather it utilises the main character's profession to explore issues such as love, drugs, sex, fidelity and morality.”
