2009/04/24 | Permalink | Source

Park Chan-wook's most recent film, "Thirst", has been selected to compete at the 62nd Cannes International Film Festival from May 13 to 24.

It is the second time that one of Park's films has entered the official competition at Cannes, the first being in 2004 with "Old Boy", which won the Grand Prix at Cannes in 2004.

Twenty other films are competing at this year's Cannes, including " Inglourious Basterds" starring Brad Pitt and directed by Quentin Tarantino, and "Taking Woodstock" directed by Ang Lee.

Bong Joon-ho's "Mother - 2009" has been included in the non-competition Un Certain Regard section.
