A Tale of Two Sisters (Audio-commentary by P. Conran and critic J. Marsh)
A Tale of Two Sisters • 1h 54m
2003 ･ Korea ･ Directed by Jee-woon Kim
Brand-new Audio commentary by Korean Cinema historian Pierce Conran & critic James Marsh.
Director Kim Jee-woon (A Bittersweet Life, I Saw The Devil) made his international reputation with this richly conceived, stylishly shot, and genuinely scary chiller, one of the key films of the Korean New Wave.
Released from a mental institution, Su-mi returns home with her father and her younger sister, Su-yeon, only to face her cold stepmother's strange behaviour, and the disturbing apparitions that are haunting their house. What dark secret connects them all to the family's past?
Haunting and heartbreaking in equal measure, A Tale of Two Sisters' devastating mix of style, scares and emotive storytelling blurred the boundaries between genres as few other horror films had done before and had a profound influence on a new generation of filmmakers.
