A woman discovers unexpected rivals for the affections of her fiancée in this drama from Taiwan set in the 1930s and 1940s. Hsu Shaodong (Huang Lei) is a gifted classical musician who is pledged to marry Wei Ying'er (Rene Liu), a young woman whose father owns a theater. However, Hsu Shaodong is attracted to Lin Chung (Yin Chao-te), a star vocalist with the Peking Opera, while Lin is infatuated with wealthy Huang Zilei (Tai Li-jen). While Wei Ying'er deeply loves Hsu Shaodong, as time passes she can't ignore his attraction to other men, which becomes all the more apparent after they leave China and emigrate to the United States. Ye Ben had its American premier at the 2000 Hawaiian Film Festival, where it was shown in competition.

''Fleeing By Night'' may have been produced with hopes of cashing in on the success of ''Farewell, My Concubine,'' but it's quite different in some major ways, and excellent in its own right. Some plot points are similar, but this is a real gay love story, in which the feelings ARE requited, and a very romantic and personal story, with no political points being made. The movie is extremely well-made, lushly filmed and scored, and the ending is very sad, but also deeply romantic and beautiful. I highly recommend this, as well as ''Lan Yu,'' a contemporary Chinese gay love story, that's also sad, romantic and very beautiful.
