Ciné-Asie is pleased to announce the Canadian release of Korean film BREATHLESS (Director Yang Ik-june) in Toronto on Friday, January 14th at Carlton Cinema. This award-winning pick was the sold-out Closing Night Gala film at Reel Asian in 2009.
This bold and blunt directional debut by Korean prolific actor, Yang Ik-june, unashamedly depicts the story of a low-life debt collector in Seoul. Yang stars himself as Sang-hoon, the violent and unscrupulous gangster with a difficult past, who comes across Yeon-hee, a high school girl with an equally difficult present. After a rather precarious start, the two manage to form a bizarre friendship of sorts amidst the hardships of their daily life.
BREATHLESS will be playing at Carlton Cinema in Toronto from January 14th, 2011 to January 28th, 2011.
