Spring in a Small Town

by

Dir. Fei Mu (1948).
Tian Zhuangzhuang broke a decade of silence with the tale of sickly young landowner, his unhappy wife, and their robustly progressive friend; his source, Fei Mu’s original is stranger, starker, and less subtle than the remake, closer in mood to Strindberg than Chekhov.
