Two years after premiering at the Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF), where it received rave reviews, Sin Dong-il's sophomore feature is finally receiving its local release. "My Friend and His Wife" opens November 27 through producer and distributor Prime Entertainment.
Amidst the praise it generated at PIFF, Variety film critic, Derek Elley was most exuberant, calling the film, "Superbly honed at every level, with dialogue, performances and direction meshing in a seamless, apparently effortless flow", adding that the director's second film should "put Shin's name on the international map".
Writer-director SIN made his feature debut with "Host and Guest" in 2005, premiering it at Pusan where it was unanimously praised. The film went on to festivals around the world, winning SIN the Director's Showcase Award at the Seattle International Film Festival. SIN's second project "My Friend and His Wife" participated in the Berlinale Co-Production Market.
