• During the Christmas party, a woman standing on a table takes off her beads as if she is stripping. Most younger probably won’t get it.
  • A man says he “took advantage of” a woman “in bed”. Actually referring to a card game though it is intentionally misleading.
  • Movie is non-graphic with many sexual situations unsuitable for children.
  • Sexual duologue throughout.
  • Although the premise of the film is an office worker who lends his apartment to his associates for adulterous trysts, there is no nudity or sex seen in the film. Even references to sex are oblique phrases such as “seeing someone,” “getting lucky,” or “a little ring-a-ding-ding.” A man is called a “lover” and a “sexpot.” It is assumed that many if not most “happily married men” cheat on their wives, and occasionally their girlfriends will even cheat on them as well.

Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


The Hollywood film spring in the apartment, shot in 1960, is the work of the great director Billy Wilder in his heyday. Like the previous film, this film won with an excellent script and became an immortal masterpiece in film history. Strangely enough, wilder, born in the Austro Hungarian Empire, did not devote himself to expressionism and Dadaism. Instead, he focused on the creation of market comedies. He was very similar to the film master Chaplin in his depiction of the bottom citizens.

Although not a pioneer filmmaker, Billy Wilder still became the symbol of Hollywood at that time, and the protagonists of his films were also popular for a time. They all had a little romantic tendency (poor people’s Poetry) more or less. Baxter, the hero of apartment spring, is one of them: the office workers who have been wandering for many years, although they go in and out of high-grade office buildings, are paid a meager salary. In today’s words, the whole senior migrant workers. Seeing that life is so dull, however, because of his honesty, his superiors have taken advantage: borrow his house and lovers. In order to keep his job, Baxter generously accepted everyone’s request until he fell in love with the boss’s mistress, Miss elevator.

If today, Baxter doesn’t have to endure the pain of borrowing a house, and the express hotels on the street are better than each other. However, if it weren’t for the lack of express hotels, he couldn’t have noticed that the elevator lady was actually a mistress. Of course, for Baxter, whether there is a Express Hotel or not is painful. If there is, he will always have a spring dream of deceiving himself and imagine how pure the girl is; If not, as shown in the film, you have to wait hard in the cold wind, the hot sun and the heavy rain and curse: NND, haven’t you finished yet? I’m almost a bird!

Baxter didn’t persuade the girl to leave the boss after finding that the broken mirror left in her house belonged to the elevator lady. But for his career. Soon, he became an assistant to the boss and enjoyed sharing the bathroom with him. For small office workers, this is a very tempting change. As the boss said to him: some people have worked for more than ten years and have never entered your office. However, the change of status, which seemed extremely glorious, made Baxter uncomfortable. Because such promotion does not depend on work ability, but the “gift” obtained by conforming to the superior and mistress Yun Yu.

People want dignity, but also need true love. Baxter angrily quit his job. Dramatically, the elevator lady also “ran away” after meeting her boss. Rather, the male and female protagonists both embarked on the right path of life, it would be better to see Billy Wilder’s yearning for an ideal life. At the end of the film, the male and female protagonists easily face the camera and play poker. When Baxter shyly says I love you, the elevator lady playfully continues to play cards. This “want to say but rest” end is obviously a romantic guess for the audience. Baxter’s slightly shy confession is also in sharp contrast to the previous obscene relationship between capitalists and mistresses. Perhaps the director wants to show that this is love, isn’t it?

Today, there are express hotels all over the street. Only after watching apartment spring, can you find how significant the Express Hotel is and feel its convenience. At the same time, you can’t help exploring the source: Express Hotel, also known as economy hotel, was born in the United States in the 1970s, including Super 8, Daisy, etc. The first Super 8 Hotel opened in Aberdeen, South Dakota, in 1974, with 60 rooms and an initial price of $8.88. With excellent service and affordable prices, express hotels are blooming everywhere in the United States and will soon enter a prosperous period. In the late 1990s, express hotels were introduced into China. When home, 7 days and Jinjiang stars sprung up, people exclaimed at the rapid development and strong strength of this industry. There is no doubt that express hotels bring convenience to people. However, what can not be ignored is that except half of the Express Hotels in the city are used to accept foreign tourists, most of the other customers are lecherous guests who have a one night stand.

In the eyes of ordinary people, Express Hotel is an disharmonious note. Because behind its crazy growth is the corruption of the moral atmosphere of the whole society. It is not only a one night stand, but also more and more extramarital affairs, prostitution, drug abuse and drug trafficking. However, we should not close express hotels because of the corruption of the atmosphere. Although its quickness has allowed some immoral and illegal behaviors to breed wantonly, the positive effects it has brought are also obvious to all. First, it has solved the problem of urban tourism accommodation; Second, contribute to local GDP. I remember an interview with Wen Qiang wrote in a report that Chongqing developed step by step by relying on the hotel industry. It can be seen that any city needs this bottle of cardiotonic. Moral corruption and economic growth have always been close brothers.

Nowadays, no one is willing to borrow Baxter’s house, and the lecherous leaders have chosen the Express Hotel; People no longer hide their affair, but swagger into the Express Hotel to open a room. If we say that now is very different from before, it is a strong worry for giving new words. In fact, many things have not changed. For example, amorous people cheat, but people pursue quality and efficiency more, and do the same things as before; For example, Baxter and miss elevator are also very popular in real life. As long as there is an office building, there will be beautiful miss elevator. For every ten beautiful girls, one will be the mistress of the boss of a certain company. It is not uncommon if one day she gives up her glory, wealth and poor boy and runs away, Because life is not perfect for everyone.

Whether express hotels exist or not can not change this imperfection.
