Romantic thrillers are a rare breed in the mainland Chinese film industry, perhaps because in a closely censored film industry without ratings (in which all films need to be suitable for children), it’s hard to get the balance right for this particular genre: sexy, noir-ish, dangerous, and commercially appealing. First time director Hao Ran takes on the challenge in Sudden Lover, adding some flavours from youth film and police procedural in the mix. The results remain compulsively watchable, even if the film can’t quite pull off its attempt to combine strait-laced tension, eroticism, and action, with a knowing, parodic take on these same elements.
