Shanghai Panic (Wo men hai pa)

Edition 2002

Director: Andrew Y-S Cheng With: Mian Mian, Zhinan Li, Yuting Yang
Bei is a young Shangai man who has had a fever for the better part of a month. He has little red dots all over his body and feels run down. Worried that he has contracted HIV, he tells his friends Kika, Fifi and Casper. They have heard rumours that AIDS patients are shipped off to a mysterious island. Bei would rather commit suicide than face that fate. Frightened, the four spend their time getting high on cheap drugs, hanging out in KTV rooms, and wandering down to the Bund, Shanghai’s famous waterfront, to ruminate on life and love in their city.
As they come to terms with the possibility that Bei may really be sick, the foursome comes closer together, sharing stories of attempted suicide and betrayal, and united by their rejection of fear…
