Chunhyang

type
  • Movie

A gorgeous retelling of a traditional Korean legend about the daughter of a courtesan, faithful to her upper-class husband even when ordered by a governor to be more like her mother. Director Im Kwon Taek juxtaposes compositions of satiny erotic power with scenes of a pansori singer, shrieking and chanting a narration. B+
