Film 'Antarctic Journal' Wins Award in Spain

2005/10/19 | Permalink | Source

SEOUL (Yonhap) _ South Korean movie "Antarctic Journal" won the best Asian film award at this year's Sitges International Film Festival of Catalonia in Spain, film producers in Seoul said Wednesday.

The movie, which was written and directed by Yim Pil-sung, captures the tale of the mysterious deaths of six South Korean explorers during an expedition to reach one of the remotest points in the South Pole.

In the annual 10-day event dedicated to horror and fantasy films, South Korean film "A Bittersweet Life", starring popular actor Lee Byung-hun, won the award for best original soundtrack, they said.

The event, which ended on Tuesday (Spanish time), is reportedly one of three such European film competitions along with the Fantasporto festival in Portugal and the Brussels Fantastic Film Festival.

Earlier, South Korean movie star Lee Young-ae won the best actress award for her leading role in the recent release "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance".

Directed by Park Chan-wook, the 112-minute thriller depicts a young woman's vengeance after her release from 13 years in prison after being framed for kidnapping and infanticide.

Park won the best film award in the festival last year with his violent thriller "Old Boy".
