'Housemaid' Screened at Cannes Film Festival

Director Im Sang-soo's "The Housemaid - 2010" was screened at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival early Saturday, Korean time.

Lim and the film's leading actors Jeon Do-yeon, Lee Jung-jae and Youn Yuh-jung walked down the red carpet ahead of the screening and posed for photos. It was the second time for actress Jeon to walk down the event's red carpet, including the time she was named best actress at Cannes in 2007 for her role in "Secret Sunshine".

After the film was screened, some two-thousand viewers gave a standing ovation that lasted nearly five minutes.

"The Housemaid - 1960" is a remake of a 1960 film by the late director Kim Ki-young. The film harshly criticizes the shallow and materialistic side of capitalism.

Meanwhile, director Lee Chang-dong's "Poetry", which is the other Korean film competing in the festival, will be screened on Thursday.
