Song Wo Shang Qing Yun
Diagnosed with ovarian cancer, iron-willed journalist Sheng Nan (â€œSurpass Menâ€ in Chinese) is pressured to make a quick fortune and find mind-blowing sex before the costly surgery numbs her senses. Taking on a businessmanâ€™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 Congcongâ€™s debut waltzes across the bitterness swallowed by her generation of women born under Chinaâ€™s One Child Policy, unprecedentedly burdened to â€œsurpass menâ€ while trying not to be â€œleftover womenâ€ 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.
