Better than watching something heterosexual, but it's never going to be your favorite movie. A French foreign Exchange student in Rural China has a relationship with a Chinese student, who has a girl who is interested in him and wants to be his wife. The movie is mostly about what she does when she realizes the man she wants is forming a gay relationship and is growing away from her. Like Ariel Castro, she feels empowered to force the issue in some pretty destructive ways, resulting in the death of her intended and the incarceration of the foreign exchange student. Refreshingly, this isn't because the Chinese government is portrayed as particularly homophobic or repressive (The characters are all Christians and Chinese church scenes are depicted) but the woman Ning is played as a vengeful harpy.

Mandarin mystery movie that follows the case of a French 'foreigner' who turns up in China floating naked in a river. Gorgeous boy, nice body. Something traumatic has rendered him speechless. Sub-plot: Hell hath no fury like a lady scorned. Convoluted but worthwhile.
