Summary: SYNOPSIS: A disobedient, unconventional narrative yields to the highly suggestive power of maverick director Tsai Ming-liang's naughty vision in the fascinating The Wayward Cloud. A terrible drought is plaguing urban life in a bizarrely under-populated Taipei, where the literal emptiness is emblematic of a pervasive sense of alienation and isolation. Daily existence is fraught with the scarcity of water. Water bottles and watermelons have become the absurd symbols of this parched world. Its disoriented denizens eke out an existence and long for love. Porn actor Hsiao-kang (Lee Kang-sheng) sweats for his bread, hovering over the agonized moans of a Japanese actress in a nurse uniform (Sumomo Yozakura) who wears a pulpy red watermelon between her legs. Shiang-chyi (Chen Shiang-chyi), who works in a museum, tries to forge a relationship with Hsiao-kang. He is responsive to her attention, but seems uninterested in physical intimacy.
