Three cheers for hotel TV's ! I accidentally caught a chunk of this movie during a recent holiday and was luckily able to see the whole thing with English subs on good old Youtube once home. In short, it's quite entertaining. The somewhat clunky title suggests the storyline, but don't be put off. The script is apparently based on a famous Chinese comic by online cartoonist Xiong Dun, who was struggling with the "T" word of the title and decided to use humour as a way of putting her battle on the web and inspiring other cancer patients. That lightness of tone is one of two key factors here, especially in the first half. Director Yan Han unleashes some impressive fantasy scenes reflecting the heroine's thoughts ( who is named after the real-life author ) and a handsome doctor assigned to the case ( a suave Daniel Wu ) is a catalyst for some solid laughs as Ms Xiong flirts up a storm. I would've preferred a fantasy or two with XD imagining being blissfully married to the doctor, though a zombie scene is done very well. Two words for Key Factor Two : Baihe Bai. That's the main actress, and she's just adorable ! It's incredibly easy to fall in love with her and consequently her medical and personal adventures will make you care. Of course, beauty and a big smile don't necessarily equate with acting ability, and the more serious second half proves she has the required talent. And the supporting cast are all effective too. I won't discuss how it ends and whether she survives, but the final scene made me cry and I believe even the most hard-hearted of you will be moved.
