Summary
  n this rather erotic, stylish Chinese melodrama, an egotistical gigolo's life goes down the tubes. Though the film was originally made in 1993, it was banned because the censors felt the sex scenes were a tad too sexy for mainland audiences. Luo is the gigolo. He works as a tennis instructor at a posh resort in southern China. His girlfriend Ah Quing works there as a waitress. He makes his first illicit sojourn into sex for hire with the wealthy wife of a successful businessman during a heavy rain storm. The affair goes hot and heavy from there and Luo's cousin tries to convince him to stop before it's too late. Luo won't listen. Then the wife, fearing that her husband will find out and leave her destitute, tries to stop the affair. The film is also known as The Drowned Youth. (All Movie Guide)
