Movie Info

Hot on the heels of her Cannes Film Festival success with Provincial Actors, Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Holland put together the equally accomplished The Fever. Holland used the Andrzej Strug novel The Story of One Bomb as a springboard for an impassioned plea for freedom of expression and an indictment of government-advocated violence. As such, the film was banned almost immediately when martial law was imposed upon Poland in 1981. Slated for obscurity, the film attained worldwide attention when it was feted at the 1981 Berlin Film Festival, by which time Holland had moved to France. The Fever was originally released as Goraczka. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Fever

All Critics (1)

Although filmed with striking light as though through a fine veil from mists rising from the river, 'Fever' includes no heroes -- just villains and fools.
