Springtime in a Small Town
(Xiao cheng zhi chun)

by FEI Mu

Spring in a Small Town-02

After the 1946 retreat of the Japanese troops, Yuwen has grown tired of her village in ruins, and of her sick husband. One day, Zhang, a lover from her younger days, pays them a visit. He is a doctor and treats Liyen, putting a little joy back into the couple’s life. But the love between Yuwen and Zhang is rekindled…

Rightly considered to one of the masterpieces of Chinese cinema, the last film of Fei Mu was completely ignored from its release right up to the 1980s, as it did not match the Communist ideology. Building on this magnificent love trio, Fei Mu conveys the daily drama of a still tormented China.
