Chun feng chen zui de ye wan

Lou Ye Hong Kong, 2009

Isira's rating of the film Spring Fever

Another pearl from Lou Ye. Some unedited scenes could have been shorter but the pace similar to Love & Bruises. In terms of a gay romance it was more subtle than Brokeback Mountain - the love scenes graphic but necessary. Lead actors were excellent, determined. Some plots lines added unnecessary twists. Camera's deliberate poor quality advantageous for mood to describe what is a lost society seeking a new identity.
