2009/03/19 Source

Yang Ik-june continued his victorious round along European film festivals. YANG's "Breathless" won four more awards over the weekend. Deauville Asian Film Festival awarded Breathless the Grand prix (best film) and the International critic's award.

At International Film Festival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria it were the actors who took the honours for "Breathless" with a Best actor (Yang Ik-june) and Best actress award KIM Kkob-bi).

Na Hong-jin's "The Chaser" is still not running out of breath, this time adding the Best action Asia film award from Deauville to its impressive tally. Deauville categorised The Chaser in the Action Asia section.

It is the second year in a row for a Korean film to sweep the top honours at Deauville; last year Deauville crowned Jeon Soo-il's "With a Girl of Black Soil" with the Grand prix and the International Critic's award.

Korean films enjoy a high reputation at Deauville, winning numerous awards in various categories. Deauville's top award went to "A Good Lawyer's Wife" (2004), "Failan" (2002), "JSA - Joint Security Area" (2001), and "Nowhere To Hide" (2000) in previous years.
