"The Handmaiden" is a masterpiece that has been pre-sold to 116 countries at the European Film Market. Word from movie makers is that Park Chan-wook just might be able to recover his name from breaking the 3-year jinx.
"The Handmaiden" starring Ha Jung-woo, Kim Min-hee, Kim Tae-ri and Cho Jin-woong, is a mysterious thriller based on Sara Water's novel "Finger Smith". It is depicted in the 1930s during the Japanese Invasion in Japan and Korea about a woman who inherits a great deal of a fortune and the secrets around her.
CJ Entertainment said, "The movie will be released around June when the Cannes International Film Festival is over". If the movie is nominated at CIFF, it will lead to tremendous ticket power.
"The Wailing" is another likely candidate which is being released on the 12th of May.
Director Na has drawn attention on himself with "The Chaser" in CIFF before.
According to a source, "A Cannes regular guest director Hong Sang-soo and Kim Ki-duk are making appearances this year and Park Chan-wook's "The Handmaiden" is an exceptionally strong nominee. There's a lot of excitement for it".
"Mad Max" director George Miller takes part in the 69th Cannes International Film Festival as a judge and the event is being held in Cannes, France from May 11th to the 22nd.
