Jae-Hee!!!!! After finishing DGCH, I now crave more Jae Hee. So, on [livejournal.com profile] catdecember’s recommendation, I got my hands on 3-Iron, a Korean movie in which he stars (btw, if like me, you get the R1 DVD, don’t read the back. I think it gives away most of the plot which is…). It sounds wonderful. Also, oooooh, art house ;). And apparently, there is almost no dialogue, just silence.



Plot: A young drifter enters strangers' houses - and lives - while owners are away. He spends a night or a day squatting in, repaying their unwitting hospitality by doing laundry or small repairs. His life changes when he runs into a beautiful woman in an affluent mansion who is ready to escape her unhappy, abusive marriage.

It is by the director of the gorgeous Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. Here is an unspoilery, short professional review.

Some photographs. It looks gorgeous and slightly surreal )

And I also want to find and watch Art of Fighting which is a movie he did in 2006, about a bullied student who learns to fight to strike back. No love story though, hmmmm. It sounds really good, if not as good as 3-Iron. It’s rather interesting that in both of them he seems to play a quiet, introverted loner. Very different from Chun-Hyang.

In other movie news, on March 30, there is a movie opening which I am extremely amused by the concept of. It is Kazakhstan’s Nomad. I love period battle epics and eeee, sounds fun, even if in part it’s because the head of government Nazarbayev was supposed to be really into this film and because the putative Kazakh heroes are played by Hispanic actors.

Plot (from a review): The mystic Kazakh warrior Oraz (a stalwart Jason Scott Lee) tells a sultan that his newborn son has been "chosen by the stars to unite all Kazakhs" and thereby overthrow the oppressive rule of the invader Jungars. To that end, Oraz raises the son, Mansur (Mexican actor Kuno Becker), and another boy, Erali (Jay Hernandez), as brothers, along with a youth from each of the tribes, to become superb warriors capable of defeating the despotic Jungar ruler (Doskhan Zholhzhaxynov). The close bond between Mansur and Oraz finds them falling in love with the same girl (Ayanat Yesmagambetova) and caught in a particularly cruel twist.

Heh. Pics:

And then there is the Thai Tears of the Black Tiger which is part Western (set in Thailand!!!), part star-crossed romance. Heee.
