Good morning my lovely readers, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great but super busy even for me. I learned a valuable lesson though – four movies in a row at the cinema are too much (even though I enjoyed them all)! Oh, my tired eyes… it was a fun day but just a little too long. But it does mean I have lots to write this week. Unfortunately, it also means I didn’t have any time to actually write any of the reviews.
Don’t worry though, I took notes in between the movies and will have the first of the reviews up for you tomorrow. But I just wanted to post a quick note to let you know the 2012 Korean Film Festival that was jointly sponsored by the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Toronto and CJ Entertainment lived up to its promise. I loved all the movies for different reasons (which you’ll soon learn about). And all those I talked to also enjoyed both the movies they watched and the festival itself.
One of the aspects of the film festival I loved was the video that played before each movie – The Beauty of Korean Style. It was a great introduction to Korea for those who aren’t familiar with the country or its culture. And all the representatives of the Consulate and CJ Entertainment were super friendly and great ambassadors for Korea and Korean film in Toronto. I hope this was just the first of many such events!
Stay tuned for the reviews of all five movies starting tomorrow.
