First Love and Other Pains

Hong Kong 1999

Details  imdb

Seen 14 February 2009

A student’s crush for his teacher seems normal but in this case, Mark, the student came into the teacher’s life, Hugh, at a low point of his teaching career.

Hugh is frustrated that his effort as a playwright is not up to standards. He is just mediocre. Mark’s advances are at first dismissed as the typical student crush but over time the two do have a relationship. Different backgrounds, common interests; a more matured father figure willing to share and impart his experiences to his younger lover, and the first love becomes so sweet.
