This film tells the story of a college student in Hong Kong who lives with his mother and has a Catholic girlfriend. One day he attends a lecture on Greek philosophy, and he is intrigued by the teacher. More and deeper, he is drawn into the mysterious world of sexual seduction. "Utopians" has a first part that is dominated by the figure of Hins and his frantic search for identity, especially sexual; To do so depends on your mentor as you would with any dedicated student, although the visions, dreams and nightmares continue to fill your world; In the second part of the movie tries to give a concrete narrative by building a complete story with a final surprise, sorry that everything seems a bit too rushed and not in line with the first part more abstract but certainly better managed. "Utopians" is quite different. It has philosophical, religious, and political elements in it. The story is told in a linear fashion, making it very easy to understand. The college student, Hins, is very friendly, and I think people can relate to him and his experiences of self discovery. The girlfriend is an interesting character as well, and plays a key role in the story. The court scene is very touching and perhaps the highlight of greatest impact. Weak spot is the lack of perception of scene, there are several scenes that are continuous and long, like the first scene, and also the scene of the beach where San Sebastian is tied in a tree. The artistic elements in "utopians" are a "pronouncement for discerning eyes". Written and directed by Scud, he made "Utopians" a veritable visual artistic exercise from a perspective of image research, cleanliness of recovery, paint brush, obsessive quest for perfection of forms, especially those of organs, Continuous return to the sea as the infinite space in which to dive reaching a unique style always tended to the sublimation of visual audio. Although it is extremely anti-homosexual and somewhat conservative I can assure that "Utopians" certainly is one of the most beautiful and intense films, in favor of a philosophical reflection on the concept of "emotional freedom" through frequent citations of the Hellenistic period; A more mature approach, so to speak, an awareness gained in sexual freedom and social prejudices that surround it.
