Well done and very sensitive Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I saw "Eternal Summer" at a film festival almost a year and half ago and loved it then and now I just bought the DVD and love it even more after watching it a second time. I noticed the same things when I watched it over a year ago as I noticed just now when I watched the DVD. The one thing about the DVD which is edited down to 95 minutes from the 105 minute uncut version I saw in the theater is the ending. By far the edited version saves the ending. When I saw the uncut version I was disappointed in the end because there had been such a nice arc to the story and then all of a sudden it fell off a cliff and died. The edited version on DVD cuts the ending short by a couple of minutes of dialogue and literally saves the ending and left me with even more appreciation for the film. Although I wish the 105 minute uncut version were available on DVD...

What made this movie so special was the organic nature of the relationship between Jonathan and Shane. I think a lot of people can relate to this movie and characters because it deals with normal every day type of people. The relationship between the two characters was so believable plus I really love the story! The one character I didn't like was the character of Carrie. I felt from the beginning that she was on the rebound from a relationship and that her trying to get Jonathan in bed was just a challenge for since she already sensed he was gay. And then her moving on to Shane seemed cruel to me as if she did that just to spite Jonathan and make him jealous. I never felt that Carrie really cared for either Jonathan or Shane although that contradicts the way her character was portrayed in the storyline. That's just my own feeling... One of the interesting things about the movie is that there are other characters in the movie but they never really come into play, you see them but there is almost no interaction with them. It's as if the world only consists of Jonathan and Shane and then eventually a third person, Carrie, is added to their world. I found the lack of other significant characters very interesting. There is one thing I didn't understand and that was the gloominess of the cinematography, it was either overcast or raining or night time. There was never a scene that took place in broad daylight or in any sort of brightness. Again, I found this interesting but didn't know what the director was trying to convey. But I think everyone should but the DVD and form their own opinion!

Yup! I like it Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
The first time I watched this movie, my conclusion was... well, it is just a so-so slow-pace gay movie. But the more I view it, the more I find out the strength of this movie. I realize that Eternal Summer is one of the rare germs in Asian world of gay cinema. Good camerawork. Nice storyline. Strong performances of the three young leading-stars (especially Joseph Chang). The low pace of this movie, instead of make me a bit boring, later I find out that this one gives me more rooms to think deeply of relationship or secret among those three main stars. By the way, have you experience... When the first time you listen to a new song, you aren't too interested; but after listening many times, then you're getting like it more and more? Eternal Summer is a kind of like that. You will like it after you watch for the second time or more...
