Guy和Henry 两个互相爱慕的男人,为达“一生承诺”毅然由香港远道到加拿大温哥华注册结婚。在香港后殖民地时代,中国传统家庭的意识形态下,二人如何透过婚姻,体现双方家人对自己建立家庭的期望?在相对开放的加拿大成婚,西方思想又对新人造成了什么影响?


Can two people form a family solely for the sake of love? Guy and Henry, a couple deeply in love, had willingly travelled all the way from Hong Kong to Vancouver, Canada in order to get married, when such marriage is not even recognized legally in their hometown. Why did they made such a big effort to do this? What is the true meaning of marriage?

Under the mentality of Chinese families in a post-colonial society like Hong Kong and through their marriage, how did the couple realize their family members’ hope regarding their union? As the couple got married in a relatively open society like Canada, how are the newlyweds influenced by the western society’s mentality and its marriage regulations?

导演阐述Director’s Statement:


As a heterosexual, I never thought of making any gay friends through my Taiwanese classmate at the Beijing Film Academy, even less shooting a documentary on their marriage. From a factual angle, I chose to focus subjectively on their love and family relations rather than their sexual orientation.
