Juliette Binoche in Busan

Juliette Binoche

The Busan cinematheque is screening a handful of French movies starring Juliette Binoche. I’m a little surprised to see some of her best films (“Blue,” “Cache” and “Flight of the Red Balloon”) missing, but I’m also excited to see her earlier, more underground work for the first time.

When: May 27 – 31

Where: Busan Cinematheque

In French with English  Subtitles:

Rendez Vous (Andre Techine, 1985)

Jetlag (Daniele Thompson, 2002)

Bad Blood (Leos Carax, 1986)

In French without English Subtitles:

Paris (Cedric Klapisch, 2008)

Lovers on the Bridge (Leos Carax, 1991)

* Tomorrow night, “Will It Snow for Christmas?” (Sandrine Veysset, 1996), about a rural family with an authoritative patriarch, is playing in lieu of one of the five Juliette Binoche movies.

    Sorry, nothing to do with the lovely Juliet, but what have you heard about the new Korean movie called “Haeundae”?

    I know it is a disaster movie set in the beach side town starring Joong-Hoon Park. Surprisingly, I saw a (very) short trailer on the TV on Monday night, and it looked pretty awful because the buildings being swept away by a gigantic tidal wave really looked like plastic blocks in a bath tub.

    My wife also told me that Haeundae residents campaigned for the title to be altered because they felt it threatened house prices due to the fear factor.

    Are they filming it now, or has it already been completed? What are the chances of them needing extras to swim or drown?

    I haven’t heard of it sorry…

    Can you post directions in English and a map of the location?

    I don’t see it on the Cinematheque’s website.

    I’ll be coming from Centum City area.


    ps. Does anyone know of an English website for PIFF?

      Click ‘Busan Cinematheque Info’ (under ‘Pages’) on the right hand side of my blog. There’s directions from the subway station, a map, and even a picture of what it looks like.
