The film "Antique", directed by Min Gyoo-dong, has been invited to the Berlin International Film Festival, according to the production company Soo Film.

The delightful story of four pretty boys managing a cake shop will knock on the doors of the non-competitive "Culinary Cinema" section, which is in its third year and brings various food-themed films from around the world. The section also features gala screenings of the films followed by meals prepared by some of Europe's finest chefs.

The film, starring Joo Ji-hoon, Kim Jae-wook and Yoo Ah-in, is based on the namesake Japanese best-selling novel and was a hit among young women who enjoyed watching the model-turned actors making cakes and revealing their secrets in the movie.

Min is expected to visit Berlin during the festival and attend the official gatherings and meetings.

Other films that have been invited for the section include "Food Inc". by documentary filmmaker Robert Kenner, "Mid-August Lunch" by Italian director Gianni Di Gregorio and Spanish comedy "Dieta Mediterranea" by Joaquin Oristrell.

Along with "Antique", Korea now has seven local films that have been invited to the film festival, including short film "Blooming in Spring" by Jeong Ji-yeon for the Generation 14 Plus section and the films "My Dear Enemy" by Lee Yoon-ki, "Land of Scarecrowse by Noh Kyeong-tae, "Treeless Mountain" by Kim So-yong, "Members of the Funeral" by Baek Seung-bin and "The Day After" by Lee Seok-gyeong for the Forum section.
