Park Chan-wook New Film Generating Massive Buzz

2009/03/24 | 432 views | Permalink | Source

Park Chan-wook's new movie "Thirst", released on Apr. 30, is already generating a huge buzz on the Internet at home and abroad. The preview trailer on YouTube has drawn 150,000 hits so far, and over 150 replies in three to four days.

Whether it will get an invitation from the Cannes Film Festival is another topic for speculation. AFP mentions "Thirst" and Bong Joon-ho's "Mother - 2009" as potential Korean invitees. The decision will be made in late April or early May.

"Thirst", follows Park's last movie after a two-year interval and is a melodrama about an illicit love affair between a priest who becomes a vampire after getting a blood transfusion from an unknown person and the wife of his friend.

"You get a glimpse of a thirst for Forbidden Love, the moral dilemma that a person goes through under extreme circumstances", Park explains. "A priest is a sacred, and sacrificing, figure, but in the movie, he can only survive on the blood of others. I wanted to express the angst that the main character experiences in this dilemma".
