Im Sang-Soo © RR Money, power and subjugation, these are recurring themes in the cinema of Im Sang-Soo. With The Taste of Money, the Korean returns to the Competition two years after The Housemaid and explores cupidity, one of the great ills of the country, according to the director.   "Korean people, whether they are rich or poor, have become obsessed with money." From this premise, Im Sang-Soo imagines the story of Young-jak, the personal assistant t...

Interview with director Im Sang-soo! THE HOUSEMAID

user
THE HOUSEMAID is a remake of a very popular 60s Korean thriller. It tells the story of a housemaid hired by a very rich family; her main task is taking care of their young daughter, Nami, as her mother is heavily pregnant with twins. Her father is a high power executive, whose sex life with his wife is not going too good, so he becomes involved with the new housemaid. As I have never seen the original, I can't compare. The film's main character, the housemaid Eun-Yi, is easy to empathise with fr...

Sydney Fest, deeper into an ocean of film

user
The vibrancy of a film festival can be measured by a willingness to juxtapose films that confound thematic linkage, offering surprises and revelations in an ocean of film from around the world: this year’s program, Lynden Barber’s second as Artistic Director, suggests he is more interested in challenging us than placating us. He wants us to ‘go deeper’. Andrew L. Urban previews the 53rd Sydney Film Festival (June 9 – 25, 2006).With over 120 feature length films and more than 60 shorts ...
