Trailers of Korean Films for release on Feb. 9

6th February 2012

This week, there is just one Korean film to be released and it is likely to have just a limited screening in the arthouse theaters scattered around the country. The movie is a documentary called Two Lines (formerly known as Must We Get Married?) It follows a couple, one of whom is the director, who have been living together for many years, who now find they have many choices to make when the woman becomes pregnant. At the end of the tagline in Korean at the end of the trailer calls the film the ‘anti-marriage documentary’ which sets it far apart from what most dramas and romances would have us believe is the ideal in Korea. Here is the trailer:

The other movies that are opening this week are from all over the world. From Asia we have Slapstick Brothers and Cut from Japan and Legendary Amazons from China. Films opening this week originating in Europe are Thor (Iceland), Same Same But Different (Germany), Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (France), Mr. Nice (England) and War Horse which is a British and American co-production. From North America we have Star Wars: Episode 1 in 3D.
