The thirteenth film by director Kim Ki-duk, "Time", was recently sold to North American distributor Lifesize at the American Film Market.

The deal was sealed by international sales agent Cineclick Asia. This marks the second of KIM's films to be bought by Lifesize, following the 2002 feature "Bad Guy". Lifesize also bought and released Lee Chang-dong's "Oasis" (2002).

Time, which screened as the opening film at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, tells the story of a woman who uses plastic surgery to make herself unrecognizable to her boyfriend.

Meanwhile, Cineclick also secured a number of pre-sales deals for KIM's upcoming 14th film "Breath". Territories sold include Italy (Mikado), Mexico (Film House), Turkey (Bir Film), Benelux (Cineart), Israel (Shani Film), and Greece (Hollywood Entertainment). Cineclick is also said to be considering various co-financing deals from major territories.

"Breath" will star Chinese actor Chang Chen, who appeared in Ang LEE's breakaway hit Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, as a death row convict who falls in love with a woman who discovers her husband cheating.
