This review is from: Spring Fever [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)Nanjing, China in the springtime. Married man, Wang Ping, has a secret; he is homosexual, yet, has taken a wife, probably to fit into Chinese society.
The wife isn't getting any sex despite all her efforts to entice him to have sex. His performance in bed is very lacklustre to say the least. She is desperate to bear a child. She automatically suspects him of adultery, but has no idea that the she is going to be a he.
The wife hires a private investigator/photographer, Luo Haitao, to spy on her husband and discovers that her husband's lover is a man, Jiang Cheng. Luo Haitao and his girlfriend, Li Jing, form a desperate love triangle with Jiang Cheng.
The chilling sequence of events that now unfolds, a suicide and an attempted murder leave you wondering if there is a happy ending in any gay Chinese movie.
Given the negative stance of the PRC against homosexuals, you wonder if this is a propaganda movie, but of course it isn't, just self deprecating Chinese, already struggling, wanting to kick themselves when they're down.
This is one of the films that made a tear roll down my cheek, if you're gay, Chinese and impressionable, don't watch it, there's no good news here.
