Korea Life Blog - The Good Lawyer's Wife

It seems I'm not the only one who really enjoyed The Good Lawyer's Wife. Take a look:

South Korean film "A Good Lawyer's Wife" takes top honors at French fest

DEAUVILLE, France (AFP) - The South Korean film "A Good Lawyer's Wife", the story of a frustrated wife who starts an affair with a teenage boy, took home top honors at Deauville's Asian Film Festival.

The six-member jury, chaired by French director Olivier Assayas, wrapped up the four-day event in the French seaside town by giving the Golden Lotus award to director Im Sang-Soo for his third full-length feature, starring Moon So-ri.

A strong Korean presence and the return of action films, especially kung-fu flicks, marked the Deauville festival, which gave the special jury prize to Roystan Tan's "15", about five youths on the fringes of Singapore society.

The Lotus for best screenplay went to Japan's Haruhiko Arai for "Vibrator", directed by Ryuichi Hiroki, while the new "Action Asia" award went to Thai director Prachya Pinkaew for "Ong-Bak".

The international critics' prize went to the Indian film "Matrubhoomi" (A Country without Women) directed by Manish Jha, while the audience award went to the Bhutanese film "Travellers and Magicians" directed by Khyentse Norbu.


If you haven't seen it, go out and rent it. It's a really well presented, powerful story of a realistic, dysfunctional marriage.
