Spring in a Small Town is a 1948 black-and-white Chinese film, written by Li Tianji (Chinese: 李天濟; pinyin: Lǐ Tiānjì) and directed by Fei Mu, a director known for his empathetic portrayal of women. It was produced and funded by Wenhua Film Company, whose great financial deficit at the time led it to produce Spring in a Small Town on a low budget with a minimalist plot and setting. The film casts only five characters, and it focuses on the struggles of a husband and wife and the ensuing turmoil when Zhang Zhichen, Liyan’s former classmate and, ironically, Yuwen’s former lover, pays an unplanned visit to the residence.
