Chihwaseon (Drunk on Women and Poetry)
Cert: 15 Year: 2002 Length: 117 mins Language: Korean
Jang Seung-ub is a penniless orphan who has a gift for art. The painting master, Kim Byung-Moon, takes him into his care, but Jang proves a rebellious pupil and is soon living life to the full, whilst never fully being accepted by the society that f�tes him. Against a backdrop of political unrest in the unstable South Korea of the 1850s we view the life-story of a hugely talented natural artist with an appetite for life. This is a beautifully shot film, the brilliance of the paintings being given full justice. A lavish depiction of a rebel artist.
Best Director, Cannes 2002
Rewardingly crazy...recreates the lyrical beauty of the paintings.
