  • Cannes Takes to A GIRL AT MY DOOR
  • by Pierce Conran /  May 23, 2014
  • Korean Drama Bows in Un Certain Regard
     


     
    July JUNG’s debut feature A Girl at My Door had its world premiere in the Un Certain Regard section of the 67th Cannes Film Festival on Sunday, May 19th. The film was enthusiastically received on the Croisette following its red carpet premiere, with director JUNG and stars BAE Doo-na, KIM Sae-ron and SONG Sae-byeok in attendance. The screening at the Theatre Debussy was followed by a three-minute standing ovation.
     
    Trade newspapers quickly published positive reviews following the film’s debut screening. Screen Daily’s Mark Adams called A Girl at My Door ‘a resolutely left-field and refreshingly off-kilter dram.’ Maggie LEE, writing for Variety, wrote that the film was a ‘wrenching drama’, and offered particular praise for the cast, referring to BAE’s performance as both ‘towering and frail’ and deeming young star KIM ‘electrifying’. Film Business Asia’s Derek Elley was also quick to praise KIM, for sliding ‘convincingly through a range of personas.’
     
    CJ Entertainment released A Girl at My Door to day in Korean theaters (May 22nd), The film is produced by brothers LEE Changdong and LEE Joon-dong for Pinehouse Films.
