"Bedevilled" Release Date Set

2010/08/17 | Permalink | Source

Korean audiences will be able to see Puchon winner "Bedevilled" at cinemas this September. The film has had a good run: after premiering at Cannes in the Critics Week section it went on to win the 'Puchon Choice Feature', the festival's top award. The film has garnered first time director Jang Cheol-soo with much acclaim. Prior to this he had made a name for himself as Kim Ki-duk's first assistant director.

"Bedevilled" has surprised and shocked viewers with its ironic flavored mix of comedy, parochial melodrama and its slasher horror climax. A dissatisfied Seoulite, darkened by her urban experience, leaves her job in a huff to escape to the island of her birth. Rather than the glowing hues she thought she experienced as a child she finds a violent, bigoted and deeply insular mini society. In the middle of this, subject to the physical and mental abuse of both the men and the old women on the island is Boknam, a woman who used to be the friend of the island's new visitor. Finally after years of abuse, and after her young daughter is killed, Boknam takes off on a murderous rampage painting the island in even darker colours.
