Two men find that desire takes them places they didn't intend to go in this independent drama from China. Lin Xue (Jiang Jiaqi) is a teacher who is married to Wang Ping (Wu Wei), but she's convinced he's being unfaithful to her, and she hires Luo Haitao (Chen Sicheng) to trail him and find out what he's been doing. It turns out that Lin's hunch is correct and Wang is having an affair with another man, Jiang Cheng (Qin Hao); Luo provides Lin pictures of them having sex, and one evening Wang brings Jiang home to dinner, telling his wife that he's an old friend he hasn't seen in years. While Lin plays it cool at first, in time Wang discovers she knows about his lover, and she angrily confronts both Wang and Jiang. As Lin and Wang's relationship crumbles, Luo discovers he's become disinterested in his girlfriend (Tan Zhuo) and is increasingly obsessed with Jiang. Chun Feng Chen Zui De Ye Wan (aka Spring Fever; the original title translates as "A Night Deeply Drunk on the Spring Breeze") was the first feature film in three years from director Lou Ye, who found himself at odds with Chinese authorities after his previous feature, Summer Palace, and shot this feature in defiance of government censure.
