Duckweed or Ride the Winds Break the Waves 乘风破浪 is a Chinese film directed and written by Han Han starring Deng Chao (I Belonged To You), Eddie Peng (Song of the Desert) and Zanilia Zhao Liying (Princess Agents).
The names attached to the project already foretell a collaboration to watch for. Interestingly enough, Eddie Peng plays the father to Deng Chao’s successful yet emotionally troubled pro racer and the boyfriend to Zhao Liying’s simple but strong-willed persona.
The plot doesn’t exactly spell things out for us but the story revolves around a strained relationship between a father and his son. Somehow the son finds himself on an inexplicable journey to rediscover his relationship with his father (as brothers?). Someone tell me if I’m misreading this or perhaps their’s a time travel aspect. On another note, the posters look lovely and they move, like in Harry Potter.
