LKFF - THE HOUSEMAID (2010) + Interview with director Im Sang-soo!

#
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 fro...

LKFF - BLADES OF BLOOD (2010) dir Lee Joon-ik

#
I am not really sure what BLADES OF BLOOD is about specifically; it tells of an illegitimate son, the blind swordsman who teaches him to sword fight and a guy who killed the father and is trying to protect Korea from the Japanese occupation, whom both the son and blind swordsman want to kill. Long story short, I fell asleep. Literally. Action films are really not my thing, I find them mind-numbing. This does not mean I am adverse to a bit of onscreen violence, it's just that it was predictable....

LKFF - Interview with Kim Jee-woon (I SAW THE DEVIL)

  Tania: I would like to ask you about your background, you were a theatre director and then you went into film. How did that work? Kim Jee-woon: I did theatre in school and I learnt acting then, but people around me told me not to, so I stopped. It was in my early 20's that I learnt that there is someone behind the actors of the stage and that a production needs an overall leader behind everything and that's when I learnt the role of a director. Tania: So how did tha...

Day 2 at [SIN]efest - 881 dir Royston Tan

#
Day 2 of the first edition of [SIN]efest was somewhat a quieter affair than the previous day's opening night, but that was to be expected, being a Friday. The film that was selected is the oldest in the programme having been made in 2007. Nonetheless, it was directed by Royston Tan, one of the youngest veterans in the Singaporean film scene who seems rather fond of giving his feature films numbers for titles - 15 - the movie, 4:30 and 12 Lotus.  And he does not disappoint on the t...

(laughs) I've always wanted to make movies since I was 15 and I thought, by the time I'm 30 I can make a feature film. This is happening a li...
