The Cloud in Her Room

她房间里的云

Rating: R21 (Sexual Scenes and Nudity 性相关及裸露画面)

Synopsis

Twenty-something Muzi returns to her hometown of Hangzhou for Chinese New Year. Through interactions with her friends, family and lovers, both old and new, Muzi navigates what it means to be female – as a daughter, a sister and, most of all, as a woman who desires and wants to be desired. The black-and-white film, its inexplicable cuts and documentary-style sequences mirror the disconcerting experience of being surrounded by the new and the familiar as well as the occasionally bumpy road of a young woman’s self-discovery. Zheng Lu Xinyuan brings the audiences through Muzi’s journey slowly, but with a confident hand. The film ultimately emerges as a charismatic and thoughtful take on a woman’s identity in a constantly changing world.

“And it feels like the launch of an excitingly uncompromised, offbeat new talent, whose sensibility nods to both the modern slow-burn social realist tradition in China, and the classic European arthouse, without being beholden to either.”
