Lee Jae-Yong's "Actresses" to Compete in Berlin

2009/11/30 | 764 views |  | Permalink | Source

Director Lee Jae-yong's latest tantalizing feature, a semi-fictional drama starring 6 of Korea's best-known actresses, is to compete in the Panorama section of the 60th Berlin International Film Festival (Feb 11-21), according to a press release by the film's distributor Showbox Mediaplex.

Aptly titled "Actresses", the film stars Yoon Yeo-jeong, Lee Mi-sook, Ko Hyeon-jeong, Choi Ji-woo, Kim Ok-bin, and Kim Min-hee as themselves, meeting on Christmas eve for a multi-generational fashion spread for Vogue magazine. The film was co-scripted by the cast, who appear to confess their anxieties and ambitions during the photo shoot.

The film will have its local release Dec 10. It is the director's 5th feature, following the spicy teen romp "Dasepo Naughty Girls" ("Dasepo Girl" - 2006) and the elegantly depraved "Untold Scandal" (2003). According to Showbox, "Actresses" is the first Korean film this year to receive an official invitation to compete at the prestigious European festival.
