And apparently, it’s the 2nd biggest ‘adult’ opening which, while at first you might think it is a given with Park Chan-Wook as the director, let’s not forget that this is a gay movie first and foremost. That changes the conversation. But anyway, leaving numbers on the side, I am writing about this to share a nice little interview with Kim Min-Hee I found. Excerpt…
A little explanation to those that might be wondering…Hideko is Maud’s character in this movie (played by Kim Min-Hee) and Sook-hee, well, self-explanatory that is Suky Tawdry, AKA Susan Trinder MKA Sue (played by Kim Tae-Ri) – the central main character in Fingersmith!
BUT anyway, how about that answer though >.< And if we are going by the book, their fate was not set from their first meeting, it was set just before their birth! Their love was born with them. Truly, the greatest love story as far as I am concerned!
Man, I love this movie so damn much before I have even watched it! I swear if I was aware of this movie a little earlier, I would be in Korea right now, just to see this movie! wouldn’t even care that I could not understand a word, well, except Ahgassi!!
Please Ireland, please be awesome and be one of the 172 countries (A record at Cannes for a Korean movie by the way) that bought the rights to show this movie in their cinemas! Otherwise I am going to have to fly somewhere just to see it. France is October, UK is probably a bit earlier, if they are showing it.
Okay, that is a lot of IFs. Time to cut down on some and do some digging as to which countries are showing this. Then it’s off to Holiday planning! have you ever planned a holiday around a movie? Well I have, twice this year! This is the second. The first is obvious! Speaking of the obvious, dat ultimate cut trailer tho >.<
