Movie Info

Nanjing, present day, springtime. Wang Ping's wife suspects him of adultery. She hires Luo Haitao to spy on him and discovers that her husband's lover is a man, Jiang Cheng. It's with this man that Luo Haitao and his girlfriend, Li Jing, form a torrid love triangle. For all three, it's the beginning of asphyxiating, sultry nights of physical abandon that exalt the senses. A sulfurous journey into the confines of jealousy and obsessive love. -- (C) Strand

So what do you do once the Chinese authorities forbid you from making movies for five years?

For long stretches of this tantalizing, romantic, aggravating film -- until just before its extremely satisfying ending, in fact -- I wished Lou had caught a little spring fever himself, cranked up the volume, and turned on the lights.

Its examination of identity and loneliness begins to feel like a soap opera season boiled down into one very long episode with too much happening.

San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

I think there's meant to be a tender love story buried somewhere in all this remote melodrama, but none of the five major characters makes the slightest impression.

This overlong and very Euro-flavored "Spring" won't make many B.O. wickets bloom.

Audience Reviews for Spring Fever (Chun feng chen zui de ye wan)

½

A haunting and beautifully observed portrait of forbidden romance about a woman who suspects her husband of adultery and hires a private investigator to follow him. When her husband is discovered in a relationship with another man, the private investigator finds himself drawn to the man he is having an affair with, and soon begins his own affair as a strange love triangle develops with him and his own girlfriend. Thoughtful and tender, "Spring Fever" deftly avoids melodrama in favor of an insightful and honest exploration of human relationships.
