Movie Summary

Rating:

The Wayward Cloud is a 2005 Tawainese drama. The film is a sequel to the successful What Time Is It There. The Wayward Cloud sees the return of both of What Time Is It There's original protagonists, Hsiao-Kang (Kang-sheng Lee) and Shiang-chyi (Shiang-chyi Chen). The film revolves around human sexuality and uses its two main characters to explore it. Hsiao-Kang has taken up a career in the adult film industry while her old flame Shaing-chyi has opened up an adult film store. As a result of their less than savory career choices, both former lovers are hesitant about approaching one another romantically and approach the topic of their career choices gingerly-Hsiao-Kang refuses to admit the true nature of her career to Shiang-chyi. The confused and muddled feelings between these two torn souls leads into something more as their sexual tension is used as a lens to take a closer look at genuine human emotion.

    The Hollywood Reporter Richard James Havis

    This silly film does nothing to enhance Taiwanese auteur Tsai Ming-liang's reputation. The acting is below par, the mise-en-scene is clumsy and the structure is lazy.
