      83% Tomatometer 6 Reviews Guo Jianbo (Hao Lei), her mother and her daughter live in the same flat. Jianbo is a journalist specializing in social news. Much of the reporting she does on social issues causes her great pain and agony. Her retired mother (Elain Jin Yan-ling) helps out in the local community. She is warm and friendly to all the residents and people in that community and regularly organizes singing competitions. But there exists an invisible glass wall between Guo Jianbo and her mother. Jianbo's daughter grows up and develops her character in the cracks of that invisible screen. The family ties that bind the three together and the nature of the times in which they each grew up have seeped into their veins like a deadly poison. Three generations. Three different contexts. Each of them has their own way of escaping from the reality around them, only to inevitably clash from time to time. After a particularly serious confrontation, Jianbo's mother is admitted to hospital and peace returns to their lives. Amongst all the anxiety and hurt brought about by Jianbo's father, their experiences of the past and worries for the future, there is a glimpse of reconciliation and a glimmer of hope.

      Deborah Young Hollywood Reporter An unstructured but still intense family drama. Jun 19, 2019 Full Review Kevin Wight The Wee Review Far from perfect, but wonderfully acted and admirably grounded in a solid and believable core, if this is Yang Lina's Spring, then we shall look forward to Summer immensely. Rated: 3 Mar 5, 2021 Full Review James Mudge easternKicks.com Although the story deals with a specially Chinese mother-daughter relationship, it's a fascinating and moving film that should speak to audiences globally Rated: 4/5 Mar 5, 2021 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film It's a film that cineastes with an interest in China's developing output will not want to miss. Rated: 3/5 Mar 4, 2021 Full Review Matthew Anderson CineVue But though in its form, style and performances there's a lot to explore just below the surface here, Spring Tide never fully sweeps us away. Rated: 3/5 Feb 26, 2021 Full Review Sean Gilman The Chinese Cinema A sophisticated work, part of a growing cycle of Chinese films about fraught relationships between mothers and daughters that are also commentaries on contemporary politics.
