'Mother ' Sets New Box Office Record for 2009


"Mother ", the latest film by Bong Joon-ho, drew over 2 million viewers in the 10 days since the release, the record for the shortest period it took a Korean Korean film released this year to reach the benchmark.

Distributor CJ Entertainment said the film had drawn 2.013 million viewers between May 28, the day it was released, and June 6, breaking the record of 14 days set by "My Girlfriend is an Agent".

"Mother " broke the 1-million-viewer barrier just four days after its release. It topped the weekend box office from May 29 to 31, edging out "Terminator IV".

South Korean movie 'Mother' invited to Canadian film festival


SEOUL, July 15 (Yonhap) -- South Korean director Bong Joon-ho's "Mother" has been invited to the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), local film officials said Wednesday, the most recent international screening of his fourth feature.

"Mother," screened at the non-competition section of this year's Cannes and seen by some 4 million viewers locally, has been invited to TIFF's Special Presentation section along with Steven Soderbergh's "The Informant!" and Jane Champion's "Bright Star," the film's local distributor said.

"Mother," praised as a unique noir thriller by critics from in and out of the country, explores the mystery of a mother's primal love for her son while digging into the secrecy surrounding a murder.

This year's TIFF, marking its 34th anniversary as one of the world's largest film fetes, will run from Sept. 10 through 19.

The festival is expected to attract more than 300,000 public and industry audiences.

'Mother' to represent Korea for Oscars
Maternal thriller beats out vampire flick and farmer documentary


SEOUL -- "Mother," the latest feature film by the helmer Bong Joon-ho ("Memories of Murder") has been selected to represent Korea for the best foreign-language film in the next year's Oscar on March 7, 2010.

The strength of the story's narrative, its potential for the film's wide release in the United States and the director's reputation were considered as priorities for the final contender, Korean Film Council said.

A total of six films were submitted to compete for the Korean finalist including Yu Ha's "Frozen Flower," Park Chan-wook's "Thirst" and Lee Chung-ryul's "Old Partner," and were reviewed by a special team of jury including director Lee Myung-se ("No Where to Hide").

"Mother" was domestically released in May, and garnered over 3 million admissions, falling below the score of the director's previous films like "The Host," which set the record as the biggest boxoffice hit in Korean film history, with 13 million filmgoers.

The story, set in a rural village, traces the battle of an anxious mother (played by Kim Hye-ja) out to prove the innocence of her mentally-challenged son (Won Bin) who is accused of murdering a high school girl. The film premiered at Cannes earlier this year.

"One of the most critical considerations [for the selection] was to see whether the film had reflected on sentiment particular in Korea," said in a jury statement. "We also had to consider if the film was compelling enough to appeal to juries who didn't know anything about the country or whether the film's distribution had the ability to be marketed abroad."

In the statement, the juries also added that "Thirst," despite the film's strong plot and solid distribution network, was unfit for Oscar's popular tastes. "Old Partner," a documentary about an old farmer and his cow, was considered "too local" in its appeal.

"While 'Mother' had a flaw in its ambiguous construction packaged as a mystery thriller, it was agreed that the story of a mother had a genuine appeal and that the director's previous work "Memories of Murder" was well-regarded in the United States," the release said.

The nominations for a foreign-language film will be announced on February 2.

Mother will get a U.S. theatrical release


Looks like director Bong Jun-ho’s most recent film, Cannes entry Mother (starring Won Bin and Kim Hye-ja), will be getting a theatrical release in the U.S.

American film distributor Magnolia Pictures has bought the rights for a North American run, and announced on August 31 that the release will happen sometime in early 2010. Magnolia is the distributor that also imported director Bong’s previous film, The Host, for a U.S. run in 2007. Along with Mother, they have also licensed Bong’s debut feature film, 2000’s A Higher Animal (starring Lee Sung-jae, Bae Doo-na). A representative from Magnolia said, “In the future, we would like to continue to distribute the movies directed by Bong Jun-ho.”

Mother screens this month at the Toronto International Film Festival and New York Film Festival. Mother is also South Korea’s entry for the upcoming Academy Awards in the foreign film category.
