The Croatian Film Clubs’ Association, in collaboration with the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, launched the 5th edition of the Korean Film Week, during which five successful movies made in the last two years will be shown.
The program has been opened with the award-winning drama “Ode to my father”(Gukjesijang), a Korean blockbuster, the second most watched movie of all time. This epic melodrama that chronicles the life of a North Korean immigrant family in the period of 60 years, from the Korean War through the German mines and the Vietnam War to the present time.
Thursday was reserved for “Socialphobia“ and “Salut d’amour“. “Sault d’amour” is a film about an older couple who proves that it is never too late for love. The movie will be screened again on Friday at 7 PM.
“Miss Granny,“ an appealing family comedy, seen in Korean cinemas by more than 8 million viewers, is scheduled on Saturday at 7 PM. Right after that, at 9:10 PM, the audience will be entertained with “Seon-ji-ja-eui Bam“(The Night of the Prophet), a debut work of a young director Kim Sung-Mooa, which far exceeds the classical concepts of student productions.
On Sunday, the last day of the Film Week, everyone who missed them will be able to see reruns of „The Night of the Prophet“ at 7 PM and “Miss Granny“ at 9 PM.
All films have English and Croatian subtitles.
Tickets are 10 HRK, while members of the Croatian Film Clubs’ Association have free entrance.
