Send Me to the Clouds
Diagnosed with ovarian cancer, iron-willed journalist Sheng Nan (Surpass Men in Chinese) is pressured to make a quick fortune and find mindblowing sex before the costly surgery numbs her senses. Taking on a businessman's biography writing job, she hikes into the misty mountains, where a chain of outbursts with her dysfunctional family, grumpy client, misogynistic co-worker and dreamlike romantic interest hilariously unfold. As deeply moving as it is luminously witty, writer-director Teng Congcongs debut waltzes across the bitterness swallowed by her generation of women born under China's One Child Policy, unprecedentedly burdened to surpass men while trying not to be leftover women at the same time. Saluting the 18th-century Chinese literature classic Dream of the Red Chamber in its title, the enchanting gem refreshes the novel's transcendent contemplation on desire, death and womanhood from a modern cinematic perspective.
