  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Secret Sunshine": Soul Food for Thought

    2013/12/14,
    In the Spotlight this Week: "Secret Sunshine" by Lee Chang-dong Life can be really tough going, gruelling and cruel. Changes in career, a death in the family, and relocating are some of the biggest stressors a human being can expected to endure in the name of life. In "Secret Sunshine", cine-poet Lee Chang-dong tackles these hard-hitting events and asks what someone might have to do to support a truly troubled soul experiencing these major life forks. We can empathise, we can befriend, we can lie to them and tell it's all going to be okay, but sometimes we just need to be patient and follow them as they trudge through the pain. Lee's films have a remarkable spirit about them, a humanist honesty that don't force change, push healing, or prescribe artificial catalysts for growth.

    Korean actresses have changed. They are giving up pretending to be pretty, weak and ingenuous. Kim Seon-ah, model-turned actress who is 170 centimeters (near six feet) tall plays the role of a woman paralyzed from waist down in the movie "The Five" that will be released Thursday. Instead of showing off her slim legs, she rides an electric wheelchair with both legs tied up. A woman who lost her husband and daughter by a murderer, she is a vengeful person. To show such emotions, Kim has disheveled hair, and her face is bruised since she fights with the murderer. Jeon Do-yeon in "Way Back Home" plays a woman who is falsely accused of carrying drugs and is locked up in a jail in a foreign country. She doesn`t give off charm of a femme fatal. Ha Ji-won performs a swordsmanship action at "Chosun`s Angels" that will be released in early next year,...More
