A decent watch, could watch again, but I don’t think I can honestly recommend.
As much as I feel like I liked the movie as a whole, the more I think about what it actually is, and it is definitely a better atmospheric movie than it is an epic story or a high paced creature feature.
This is a slow burn, hinting at this or that, drip-feeding information until things are just very obvious. While I think a “Jaws” approach definitely would have given more punch, the movie opts for a deeper question of “I see what’s happening, but why?”.
The movie definitely takes the time to discuss everything in detail, and while the things that would need some explanation are interesting, the movie is filled to the brim with someone’s vacation video.
Ultimately worth a watch if you’re into semi-grotesque semi-horror stories this should be worth a watch, but I don’t know how many people are going to come back to watch this one again.

This is a surprise film. A romance-drama with the backdrop of the smart mix of sci-fi and fantasy. You won’t always get a B movie as good as this one. So when you find one, you should appreciate them. It never needed the higher-end graphics, because everything it required of those were in small quantity. Even though they did not compromise and gave best visuals that greatly impacted to the narration.
The leading two were very impressive. The Italian locations as well equally beautiful, overall the screenplay was the real winner. The story of an American man who flees to Italy after his mother’s death and followed by a small incident. There he meets an unusual young research student and convinces her to date him. While they both getting closer, a series of weird stuffs begins to threaten their relationship. Explaining those to one another and for us the what the remaining film focused.
This is like ‘Before Sunrise’ meets some monster film. I don’t think it is very original, but kind of refreshing that carefully carved film. If you see the film poster, you won’t get the impression that you want to watch it immediately, but if you give it a try, surely you would be, I mean majority of you won’t end in a disappointment. There’s no way it should have been better, because it is already at its best in a simple way. Not a must see, but I hope you won’t miss this little gem if you’re reading this.
A slightly twisted, supernatural companion piece to Before Sunrise? maybe, maybe not.
This turned out to be much sweeter, much more touching than I had first anticipated. Though the film takes a good half an hour to get into its stride it really is worth the slight uneasy feeling you may have when Evan first gets to Italy and you’re wondering if it’s going to turn into something akin to the Hostel series, but thankfully this is as far away from that kind of horror as possible.
At it’s core the film is a dark, fairy-tale like horror romance but it keeps itself grounded in ways that are really satisfying and could only be possible in the world of independent cinema because if someone else, other than Benson & Moorhead, had made the film it could’ve easily turned into one of those slick, Hollywood style fantasy movies with lots of leather, low-key lighting, vivid colours and fast editing. The film does have very dark moments, horrifying moments, but they’re handled with a certain amount of grace and elegance that I wasn’t expecting and you will enjoy this film more than you think you might.
The lead actors are great. Lou Taylor Pucci’s portrayal of Evan is wholly convincing, his character could’ve run the risk of being entirely forgettable but he’s sweet and charming and highly likable. Nadia Hilker has been working in German television for about 5 years, this is her first feature film, and I have to say I’m a little bit in love with her. The personality she gives to a character that could easily have fallen into the realms of utter cliché is really, really refreshing.
A slightly twisted, supernatural companion piece to Before Sunrise? maybe, maybe not. But definitely something different, at least.
Very fine and original mixture of different genres which develops slowly but at the end packs an existential punch
Have you ever seen a movie that is at the same time romantic drama, comedy, sci-fi and a horror movie with some historical elements? Spring is not a drama with other genre *elements*. This movie is at the same time all of the above. Now that’s a crazy combination!
Spring takes things slowly. It is not fast paced horror movie primarily focused on delivering terror and creeps. Scary scenes are nicely distributed through the whole movie. In between them we enjoy romantic moments. Historical elements play a really important role in delivering the last few key moments. I found this movie pretty funny. Comedy is not by itself obvious (even though the main premise is pretty hilarious when you think about it); those having a peculiar sense of humor will surely appreciate “hidden” humor. Just look at a few quotes on IMDb page.
When I first had seen the movie I gave it a six. Now I give it an eight. This is one of the most original screen pieces I’ve ever seen. Different genres are balanced very finely.
Spring is going to disturb you, make you laugh and most importantly make you think about what gives life a meaning. Is it really important how long one lives?
And the final scene? It gives meaning to the whole movie and provokes answers to existential questions. Just wait till you see it!
