ACF 305: NYAFF 2009 approaches!!!

Subway Cinema's New York Asian Film Festival 2009 festival will start in just five weeks and will run from June 19th thru July 5th. Here's a look at one of the many fine films that will be screened.

CRUSH AND BLUSH
Directed by Lee Kyeong-Mi
South Korea, 2008
New York Premiere

This hysteria-fueled comedy from Korea has already acquired a cult following and it’s easy to see why.

Produced by Park Chan-Wook (OLDBOY, and he also has a cameo – as does HOST director Bong Joon-Ho) it’s from first time female director Lee Kyeong-Mi and stars actress Kong Hyo-Jin as a high school Russian teacher demoted to teaching English, a language she barely understands. Her solution? All-out war with the teacher she views as the source of her misery.

The kind of movie that’s very, very funny until it goes too far and starts making the audience very, very uncomfortable.

For more info about the festival, check out Subway Cinema's website.
