Mother screens at AFI FEST in Los Angeles


Good news for Los Angeles fans of Won Bin (Taegukgi), Kim Hye-ja (Mom’s Dead Upset), and/or director Bong Jun-ho (The Host): Their latest film, the thriller Mother, is getting a screening at this year’s AFI FEST 2009 in Hollywood.

The film has already been licensed for North American theater release, but that will not occur until early next year. AFI FEST runs from October 30 through November 7, and has just announced its first twelve official titles to screen at this year’s event, of which Mother is one. (Others include Lee Daniels’ Precious — which looks heartbreaking and awesome — and Warner Herzog’s The Bad Lieutenant.)

Mother also screens this week at Toronto International Film Festival and at New York Film Festival on October 9.

Usually, I write about these film festival screenings without firsthand experience, but I’ve been to AFI FEST many times when I lived in LA and it’s a really great film festival, with a broad, eclectic range of films selected from all around the world. If you’re in the area, I’d highly encourage you check it out. (Not sure if the cast will be there for the Q&A session afterward, but you never know.)

“Mother” dances in New York


The 47th New York Film Festival (NYFF), held from September 25 to October 11, ended with director Pedro Almodovar's film “Broken Embraces”. This year’s festival, which showed 29 films from 17 countries, featured a special showing of silent film “Crossroads of Youth” by Korean filmmaker Kim Tae-yong which invited its narrator Cho Hee-bong, a small band and some singers to the event -- drawing much attention from the New Yorkers. Some of the comments from people who watched “Crossroads” included “The cinematography was very sophisticated for a film made in the 30s” and that “the narrator’s narration was very entertaining”. Due to everyone’s busy schedules, the “Crossroads” team only had a brief rehearsal on set before the day of showing but the response from the audience at NYFF was so positive that they had a second showing at Yale University.

In addition, the film “Mother”, which was selected for the finals, attracted a huge crowd which filled up the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center where the festival was held. During the Q&A session after the showing, the audience asked various and detailed questions such as the meaning of the dance shown at the beginning and end of the movie, the reason one mother asked an inmate in prison if he “has any parents” and how the music was chosen for the film. Director Bong Joon-ho introduced music director Lee Byung-woo as “a very famous guitarist in Korea who worked on my last film ‘The Host’”. He also confessed that “we get into monstrous fights when we work together but I think something creative comes out of that process.” Both films, “Crossroads” and “Mother”, drew positive reactions but the subtitle and interpretation for the movies left much disappointment.

This year’s NYFF opened with famous French director Alain Resnais' new film “Wild Grass”. The director Resnais himself, along with actors Andre Dussollier and Mathieu Amalric delighted fans by attending the fest. In addition, director Lee Daniels’ “Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire”, which won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, was also shown to the audience. Set in one of the slums of New York's neighborhoods during the late 80s, “Precious” is about a sixteen-year-old girl finding confidence and standing on her own feet after being sexually molested by her parents. In particular, actress Mo'Nique’s portrayal of the girl’s cruel mother drew talk of an Academy Award nomination while the film also drew attention for Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz playing supporting roles in the film.

Other films shown at the festival included: director Michael Haneke’s “The White Ribbon”, which won the Palme d’Or at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival and was invited to the 14th Pusan International Film Festival; “Antichrist” by Lars von Trier, “Life During Wartime” by Todd Solondz, “Bluebeard” by Catherine Breillat, “Independencia” by Raya Martin, “White Material” by Claire Denis and “Everyone Else” by Maren Ade “Lebanon” by Samuel Maoz.

However, this year’s NYFF received criticism that not only were most of the films invited already shown and awarded at other international festivals, but they were also dark and cruel. This year's films in particular were accused of being selected by critics, not curators, of the festival. In the past, NYFF was a good opportunity for curious movie fans in New York to approach films that were not very accessible. But this year, it was disappointing that many of the movies seemed to demand “only positive reactions” because they had already been selected at other film festivals.

Kim Hye-ja wins Best Actress at Chinese film fest


Korean actress Kim Hye-ja has won the award for Best Actress at China's Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival for her role in the film "Mother", according to a press release on Friday.

The Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival -- considered China's equivalent of the Academy Awards -- combines the Golden Rooster votes by critics and industry experts and the Hundred Flowers votes submitted by the general public. The audience watch the film and directly cast votes to the film that they think is best.

Kim, South Korea's veteran actress, has received more than a few appraisals for her performance in director Bong Joon-ho's film. Critics from Cannes, Toronto, Vancouver and New York film festival have complimented Kim's acting as "the performance of the year" and "exceptional acting that expresses heaven and hell on a singular face."

"Mother", which co-stars Hallyu star Won Bin as the mentally disturbed son, has been sold to 12 countries including Australia, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Portugal and U.S.

The film is set to open in Hong Kong on November 19 and will sequentially open in other countries.
