London Korean Film Festival – Dream by Kim Ki-duk

Tonight was day two of the LFKK. We attended the showing Dream directed by Kim Ki-duk. Mr. Kim is perhaps best known internationally for his film Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter….and Spring.  Based on Spring, the only other film by Mr. Kim that I’ve seen, Dream was a bit of a surprise. The movie explored the relationship between two people – whenever the main character had a dream the actions of that dream were carried out by another individual. The movie was going very well but then it descended into something quite different, and violent. The depictions of self-torture including sleep deprivation were pretty graphic. The ending was not quite as great as what I think it could’ve been. Most fascinating was that the main character spent the move speaking in Japanese while everyone else in the move spoke Korean (at least that is how it seemed to me), which is really fascinating.

The LFKK goes on over the weekend but my next ticket isn’t until Monday. Saturday is animation day but I’m booked into an all day workshop on Saturday.
