Blue Gate Crossing (Chinese: 藍色大門pinyin: lánsè dà mén) is a 2002 Taiwanese film by writer-director Yee Chin-yen. It won the nomination Best Asian film at the 23rd Annual Hong Kong Film Awards.

Reception

The film has been well-received critically. Dennis Lim, in a review for the Village Voice, observed the film's "meticulous framing and haunting use of repeated motifs" reflects the influence of Taiwanese New Wave directors Hou Hsiao-hsien and Edward Yang. [1] The Portland Mercury described the film as "a modern-day Chinese lesbo twist on the old Cyrano story" that "treads new territory in the teen coming of age drama realm," praising Yee's "haiku-like directorial lyricism."
