S. Korean Takes Top Honors at Deauville Film Festival

2009/03/16 | Permalink | Source

South Korean director Yang Ik-june's "Breathless" has won the best film award and critics' prize at the eleventh Deauville Asian Film Festival held in France early Monday.

The judges of the annual event said Yang's film was the unanimous choice for best flick of the festival. They described the film as an intense experience that explicitly expresses problems associated with families and interpersonal relationships.

In another win for the Koreans, Na Hong-jin took home the best Asian action movie award for his box-office hit "The Chaser".

Last year, Korean director Jeon Soo-il won the festival's best film award for his movie, "With a Girl of Black Soil".
