Twilight’s Kiss presents the story of two closeted married men in their twilight years. One day Pak, 70, a taxi driver who refuses to retire, meets Hoi, 65, a retired single father, in a park. Despite years of societal and personal pressure, they are proud of the families they have created through hard work and determination. Yet in that brief initial encounter, something is unleashed in them which had been suppressed for so many years. As both men recall their personal histories, they also contemplate a possible future together. Inspired by an oral history of older gay men in Hong Kong, Ray Yeung’s film looks inside a closeted world rarely seen on film. Wendy Ide of Screen International praised it as “a delicate little wisp of a romance which plays out in fragile moments and shared glances.” (Dir.: Ray Yeung, Hong Kong/China, 2019, 92 min., Cantonese with English and Chinese subtitles)
