London Korean Film Festival – A Frozen Flower

Tonight was the final night of movies for the LKFF being shown at the Barbican. The series of Bong Joon-ho’s movies goes on at the BFI until 14 November and some movies will be shown at Broadway Cinema in Nottingham until 18 November. The final movie at the Barbican was A Frozen Flower directed by Yoo Ha. This is an historical drama done with too much melodrama. It was a bit much for the mostly non-Korean audience and got a few laughs during scenes which were probably not supposed to be funny. It was just really too much. The story was predictable and a bit cliché. But it wasn’t all bad, the costumes and scenery were all striking and the fighting scenes were decent except for some parts of the final fight scene, which were not credible.

The LKFF, for me anyway, is over. My top three movies of the LKFF, in no particular order, are

  1. Kim’s Daughters
  2. Private Eye
  3. Scandal Makers

My two least favourite movies of the LKFF were:

  1. Dream (I think I’m done with movies by Kim Ki-duk)
  2. A Frozen Flower

Notice how I smoothly added a countdown list at the end there – that’s one of the tips for good blogging.
