Synopsis:

East Palace, West Palace comes from China, is in Mandarin with English subtitles. The movie is a two-character drama, involving a young gay man (Si Han), identified as a writer, and a local policeman (Hu Jun) who arrests him for public cruising in a park, possibly in Beijing. The policeman is more than professionally curious about the young man, who seems to undersand the policeman's 'extreme interest' with the writer suddenly kissing the policeman. The movie is almost completely focused on a nightlong interrogation of the young gay man by the policeman, touching on issues such as coming out, cruising, being married and gay, S&M, etc. The movie has political ramifications, comparing the intolerance of gays with interolance in general of human rights (in China).
