Korean Movies: "Ha Ha Ha" Chosen as One of Most Notable Asian Films of 2010

2011/01/07 | Permalink | Source

In The Wall Street Journal's Scene Asia, Dean Napolitano wrote about the Asian movie industry in 2010 and listed his 10 picks as the most important and notable Asian feature films of the year.

Korea is represented by director Hong Sang-soo's "Ha Ha Ha", which is described in Scene Asia as a "wry comedy about two friends – a film director and a movie critic – who reminisce about their intertwining lives and relationships".

Last May, "Ha Ha Ha" was the recipient of the Cannes Film Festival's top prize in Un Certain Regard and was also presented to acclaim in the World Cinema section at the AFI Film Festival in Los Angeles in November. In the latter event's program, Landon Zakheim wrote: "Delicately sculpting a potent swirl of chance encounters, nostalgia, heartbreak and grace with composed irreverence, Hong (Sang-soo) delivers his most sincere work yet".
