- KANG Mal-geum
After the sudden death of the director she had been planning to spend a lifetime working with, a film producer named Chan-sil is now unemployed and it seems nobody will employ her on other films. At the age of 40, jobless and penniless and living in a cheap room run by a shifty old woman who looks askance at her, Chan-sil begins to work as a cleaning lady at an actress' place. By chance, she meets a young man who teaches French to the actress and she feels a strong attraction to him, perhaps a feeling more meaningful than desperation or maybe a result of the anxieties over her wasted youth, lack of a love-life, and broken career. Can she produce a happy end to her own life?
Director KIM Cho-hee creates a wonderfully wry comedy that is alternately maudlin and amusing as it picks apart female desire and travails through a bumbling, charming and sympathetic character embodied in a winning performance from lead actress KANG Mal-geum.
