The beginning of Spring might remind you of Richard Linklater’s Before-trilogy. Just like in Before Sunset, Before Sunrise and Before Midnight, Spring treats us to catchy dialogues about relationships, life, love and dead. Our two star crossed protagonists are the American Evan who, after the death of his mother, is bagpacking his way through Italy, and Louise, a ravishing art restorer whom he runs into in a picturesque town on the seaside. The surroundings are gorgeous and there’s heat and passion in the air. There’s only one thing that might stop their romance from blossoming. Whenever the moon is full in the sky, Louise falls prey to some strange transformations.

Fans of Jacques Tourneur’s Cat People or Paul Shraders remake are in for a treat. The latest movie from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution, V/H/S Viral) is a unique genre hybrid in which all fantastic and horrific elements are at the service of the dramatic development of the protagonists. Their boldness got rewarded with numerous festival selections, raving reviews and awards. Spring will sweep you away and will leave you gasping for air, especially when you first lay eyes on the delicious Nadia Hilker as Louise.
