[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "A New Leaf"

2014/04/19 | | Permalink

Amnesia is such a tricky thing in dramas. Much like a sworn enemy, it always pops up to ruin a work's credibility, lower its quality and save writers from their own inability to enrich their story. Also, it does not sit too well with many viewers. MBC's 'A New Leaf' takes a slightly different approach, making the recovery and reacquaintance with one's life after it its premise...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox" + Giveaway

2014/04/19 | | Permalink

Yobi (voiced by Son Ye-jin) is a hundred year old fox spirit. She's spent most of her life living with a band of aliens who crash-landed into Korea. A sudden crisis forces her to interact with the children attending camp near the forest, and the outlook on her life seems positive.

[HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "The Bow": Dead-Reckoning Romance

2014/04/19 | | Permalink

In the Spotlight this Week: Kim Ki-duk's "The Bow"...

Whether it be the dumb pander in "Bad Guy" (2002), the silent sneak in "3-Iron" (2004), or the mute monks of "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring" (2003), Kim Ki-duk loves silencing his puppets for our amusement. By hushing his heroes Kim sharpens our eyes to the meditative magic of the moving image. Dense dialogue and consuming chatter play second fiddle to the slow and symbolic seduction of curious characters lost in space. This is Kim's world, a placid and ethereal place that orbits a volatile sun with unseen molten madness at its core. There are both deep-seated and distance threats lurking in Kim's creations, forces that exist just out of frame that may, at any time, strike and sully the event with unadulterated Armageddon and subconscious conspiracies...More

A selection of shots from Kim Ki-duk's "The Bow"

Kim's twelfth feature "The Bow" is a liquid love letter that aims to withstand the test of time. In it, Kim tells us the tale of an old sailor and the young girl he saved nearly a decade before. Together they live aboard a creaking vessel miles from civilisation, and receive only a few sailors that come out to their watery world to fish the open sea. The captain, an aging seadog, has looked after the abandoned girl for almost a decade, and the time has nearly come for them to get married. But when a handsome student finds his way to their salted sanitary, the young girl begins to question her fate and, subsequently, that of her bearded breadwinner. It's a slow and thoughtful piece that comes soaked with sentiment, an emotional affair that is unmistakably Kim and unavoidably magical. Enjoy! [spoilers]...More
