The actual members of the Hong Kong Baseball Team bare their souls and bodies to
play themselves in this fictional youth drama. In a city where baseball culture is
non-existent, these baseball players are a minority by choice. The experience teaches
them to be free-thinkers in dealing with love, friendship and their own sexuality. It
also enables them to find the will to live in the face of death and the strength to
conquer losing in a spectatorless sport.
Reasons to Buy
- City Without Baseball opens with a delicious (and completely homoerotic) locker room shower scene - you know, from the beginning, that it's going to be hot.
- Hong Kong filmmaker Scud cast the actual players of the official 2008 Hong Kong Baseball Team in this film - and has most of them appear nude.
- Though this movie made waves when it opened in Hong Kong, it has not been available on DVD in the United States... until now! Enjoy!
