Asian Movies Dominate Theaters This Week

2007/11/02 | Permalink | Source

Time now to check this week's new movies.
There's the film version of a bestselling Korean comic book about master chefs and two collaborations between Korean and Japanese filmmakers.
Lee Jeewon has our preview.
"Le Grand Chef", this is a movie for gourmets.
Two apprentices at renowned Korean restaurant Unamjung compete to become the head chef.
Although their food looks and tastes divine, judges at the contest fall out of their chairs poisoned from fish prepared by the apprentice, Sungchan.
The other candidate, Bongju, wins while Sungchan quits cooking altogether.
But fate brings them together again this time for a bigger title.
The film is based on a popular Korean comic strip which later was published as a comic book with 540-thousand copies sold.

Heavyweights in the Korean and Japanese film industries come together in "Virgin Snow".
It's love at first sight for characters played by Lee Joon-gi and Aoi Miyazaki.
But will they end up together despite the language barriers?
The movie is set in Kyoto, Japan's ancient capital.

Next up is Hero, starring Japanese superstar Takuya Kimura as public prosecutor Kuriu.
The story unfolds when a suspect suddenly claims to be innocent while on trial but after having previously confessed to all his charges.
The movie is based on a 2006 hit TV series of the same title.
Like Virgin Snow, this movie is also a result of collaboration between Korea and Japan with the latter part of the story taking place in Busan and starring Korean actor Lee Byunghun.
