Chun feng chen zui de ye wan

Lou Ye Hong Kong, 2009

Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Spring Fever

Discovering the filmography of director Lou Ye has been quite a frustrating experience. Some of his films are absolutely wonderful, some not so good. Yet there's usually something to make them worth at least one viewing. Spring Fever says some interesting things, but not enough of them, and not with characters that viewers can become invested in.
