This week we have three new Korean films opening on the big screen.
The first is the film Architecture 101 starring Uhm Tae-woong, Han Ga-in and Lee Je-hoon. It is the story of two college classmates who meet again years after graduation and fall in love all over again. Oh– ingnore the title Introduction to Architecture that the Youtube poster added.. the official title is Architecture 101…
The movie I am more interested in is Hand In Hand starring Joo Hyeon, Ye Soo-jeong, and Chae Min-hee in which an elderly couple are fast approaching their end of their comfortable and peaceful love and life together.
Finally there is a documentary entitled Planet of Snail about a man who became blind and deaf as a child after suffering from a high fever. The trailer has English subtitles from the film’s release at international film festivals.
These films will be up against the following movies from overseas. From Asia: Let the Bullets Fly (china), Shinobido (Japan) and Nude (japan). From Europe: Autumn Sonata (sweden), The Girl Who Played with Fire (sweden), Space Dogs 3D (russia) and Untouchable (france).
