2014/02/13 | 518 views | Permalink

Independent TV producer Shin-Hye (Uhm Jung-hwa), self-assured housewife Mi-Yeon (Moon So-ri), and single mom Hae-Young (Jo Min-soo) are a tight-knit group of 40-something friends going through the ups and downs of their lives and loves in modern day Seoul. This racy comedy is the latest from director Kwon Chil-in, known for his frank portrayals of relationships and women's sexuality.
Following a drunken work party, Shin-Hye ends up spending the night with her much younger colleague, who later wants their relationship to become more than a one-night stand. Mi-yeon enjoys spicing things up with her husband but she doesn't know that he secretly takes viagra as her libido takes its toll on him. Meanwhile Hae-young, whose grown-up daughter still lives with her, begins dating a carpenter.
"Venus Talk" stars three of Korea's most accomplished and provocative actresses including Jo Min-soo ("Pieta"), Uhm Jung-hwa ("Haeundae"), and Moon So-ri ("Oasis").

A Raw And Honest Portrayal Of The Lives And Loves Of Mature S. Korean Women
Ever since the hugely successful rom-com "Singles" (2003), the South Korean film industry desperately lacked major films portraying the stories of 40-something women. And over the last two years the industry has experienced remarkable growth and part of that has been attributed to an audience that has extended beyond its typical 20s and 30s moviegoers to include far more viewers in their 40s as well as 50s. Given these older filmgoers' tastes and the dearth of leading female characters on South Korean screens, director Kwon Chil-in (directed "Singles") was inspired to make a movie that Korean women could relate to.

South Korea's Leading Actresses Come Together For The First Time In "Venus Talk"!
All three leads in "Venus Talk" have done remarkable work in the past, UHM for her role in Princess Aurora
(2005), Moon's indie cred for Lee Chang-dong's "Oasis" (2002) and various Hong Sang-soo films, and JO's leading role in Kim Ki-duk's Venice Golden Lion recipient "Pieta" (2012). The three acting powerhouses coming together for this film has already created major buzz in South Korea as one of the most anticipated films to watch in 2014.
