An art teacher spends his nights painting. One night he hears noises in the loft over his. Investigating, he discovers an interloper, who claims he is going to rent the area despite the landlord's earlier assurances that he would not rent the area.

A strange and beautiful film
13 August 2001 | by (Grenoble, France) – See all my reviews

Fever is a difficult film, and I mean that in a good way. I think the director is creating a story about the raw emotions and desires in a young man caught in the modern world. We follow a painter in New York City who is not able to achieve his goals and dreams, and as a result, escapes into an alternate reality. However, this reality is as much of nightmare as his waking life. If not worse. Like Lynch and Cocteau, Winter forces us into this man's subconcious, and asks us to feel the terror and despair that affects this confused mind. I really enjoyed the trip.
