Spring (2014) – Raw Review

If you have a romantic note anywhere within you, something about this movie should pluck at your heartstrings.

 

Sounds strange to hear this about a movie that is supposed to be genre, dark, and have monsters… Well you’re in for a real treat.

 

Spring is a wonderful movie. An intelligent and unabashedly romantic film, and an amazing example of how you can incorporate mystic/supernatural/horror/sci-fi/fantasy themes into modern romantic storytelling.

The story follows a young American who while on a trip to the Italian coast meets a girl who is unlike anyone he’s ever experienced. The chemistry between the lead actors Lou Taylor Pucci and Nadia Hilker is fantastic, believable and adds a level of emotional investment that really upstages a lot of the standard romance tentpoles we get every year.

The movie is intelligent and well written, a slow burn that is fascinating to watch and powerful in its visuals and performances. I recommend you try and watch it without any spoilers, predisposition or idea about it’s meaning or impact. I’ll just say that it’s a love story first and a genre film second. It also has one of the best endings to a movie I’ve seen in a very very long time.

 

I can’t recommend Spring enough. Do yourself a favor and see this movie.Spring, horror, body horror, Italy, romance, love, awesome, monster, movie review, raw review
