"Hansel and Gretel" in Canadian cinemas

2008/09/17 | Permalink | Source

Yim Pil-sung's fantasy thriller "Hansel and Gretel" will enjoy a limited theatrical release in Canada and a DVD release. Korea's Fine Cut sold the distribution rights to Canadian distributor Evokative Films.

The beautifully and intriguingly crafted Hansel and Gretel benefits greatly from the acting achievements of the three promising child actors Shim Eun-kyung, Jin Ji-hee, and Eun Won-jae. They portray three children who seem to be family in a fairytale environment, away from the regular world, but who have a hidden dark past.

"Hansel and Gretel" was invited to Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival (PiFan), where the European Federation of Fantastic Film Festivals Jury bestowed it a special mention; it will be the closing film of Vancouver International Film Festival's Dragons and Tigers section; and it will screen at Sitges International Film Festival and London Film Festival.

LIM's second film opened in Korean cinemas at the end of 2007 and was recently released on DVD in Korea. LIM previously directed Song Kang-ho and Yoo Ji-tae in the acclaimed "Antarctic Journal".
