Chinese romance film-"Go Away Mr. Tumor" has been submitted to compete for this year's Academy Awards for Best Foreign language Film.

The submission of the tear-jerking real life drama comes as a surprise to many.

Critics and film industry insiders were betting on either "Wolf Totem" or "Mountains May Depart" to be China's official submission to the Oscars.

"Go Away Mr. Tumor" features the final years of a cartoonist and her fight against a malignant tumor until she loses the battle at the age of 30.

It grossed over 500 million yuan, or some 80 million US dollars at the Chinese box office.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong has submitted "To the Fore" to the competition and Taiwan has picked Hou Hsiao Hsien's "The Assassin" as its entry.

The 88th Academy Awards nominations will be announced in January, 2016.

The Oscars will be held in late February at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
