  • Description

    Regarded as the finest work from the first great era of Chinese filmmaking, Fei Mu’s quiet, piercingly poignant study of adulterous desire and guilt-ridden despair – now restored by the China Film Archive – is a remarkable rediscovery.

    After eight years of marriage to Liyan – once rich but now sickly and almost suicidally apathetic following a long, ruinous war – Yuwen does little except deliver his daily medication. A surprise visit from Liyan’s friend Zhang re-energises the household, the invalid included. Liyan’s young sister is not alone in her excitement over the much-travelled guest; Yuwen knew him before her marriage…

    In 2005 Spring In a Small Town was declared No.1 in the Best 100 Chinese Motion Pictures. A re-make as Springtime in a Small Town by Tian Zhuangzhuang was released in 2002 , but this is the first time that the original film has been available on DVD in the UK.

    Features:

    • Rare Chinese shorts from the BFI National Archive
    • Fully illustrated booklet with complete film credits

    Cast and Crew: Directed by Fei Mu. Starring Wei Wei, Li Wei, Shi Yu
