San Qi is the newest Meng Po, gatekeeper of the underworld, and she has her eyes set on grim reaper Zhao Li. Unfortunately for her, she lost a part of her soul during birth and grew up ugly and dull-witted, which is the main reason Zhao Li repeatedly rejected her advances. She spends her days brewing Tea of Forgetfulness and helping souls pass on to the next life, or feeding on souls destined for hell. Then one day, a boy named Chang Sheng stumbles into her place smelling deliciously edible. The problem, however, is that she can't eat him because he is a living soul who is in the underworld by mistake. His lively presence gives color to her dreary existence and makes her yearn for the world of the living. Edit Translation

A weird and interesting movie

This is one of those movies, where you go "Huh?" for a number of reasons.
For one, the storytelling structure is unusual, if you go in uninformed it is a bit of a trip, making you wonder where it is going and what it is trying to say.
As a European with no introduction to Chinese legends, it is so whimsical and random. If you Wikipedia it and then watch it again, it makes more sense, but not much? And yet I was fully charmed by the story and the acting. I am sure, if I spend more time doing research, there are many easter eggs for mythology fans.
Maybe it is a bit like watching a theatre show without having read the source material. You get emotional, and you don't know why either.
