Asians at Cannes
Asian films to compete at Cannes. That’s Im Sang Soo above.
“On Thursday the festival announced its lineup, which includes director Hong Sang-soo’s “In Another Country” and “The Taste of Money” from director Im Sang-soo. Mr. Hong’s feature “Hahaha” won the Prix Un Certain Regard at Cannes two years ago.
Abbas Kiarostami, one of Iran’s most celebrated directors, will also compete for the top prize with “Like Someone in Love”. The drama, which takes place in Japan and has been getting some buzz on the Internet, focuses on the relationship between a young woman and an older man.” (WSJ – Cannes)
