(Singapore, 1998, 95 min)
Disco may be dead, but its spirit lives on in Forever Fever, a crowd-pleasing dance flick from Singapore director Glen Goei. The film contains a deft mix of comedy, romance, and drama, which results in a thoroughly charming homage to Saturday Night Fever, John Travolta, and even the late, great Bruce Lee. Although steeped in references to the 1977 disco classic, the movie avoids rip-off status thanks to ample doses of heart, humor, and originality—not to mention an unmistakably Singaporean touch.
