Catch our Closing Night Gala Film and Awards Ceremony tonight at 8 PM in the Royal.
It’s one of the most acclaimed Asian films this year, and it will pummel you…in the best sense. BREATHLESS is the award-winning tour-de-force debut by writer/actor/director Yang Ik-June. You may have seen him in films such as NO REGRET (screened at Reel Asian two yeas ago), but here he is a bona fide star. He plays a volatile debt collector who meets his match in a no-nonsense high school girl. Together they must confront their own experiences as victims of domestic violence. Yes, the film is raw and shocking, but it is also incredibly powerful and moving. Plus, the director/lead actor Yang himself will be in attendance! Take this chance to meet the man himself. After winning accolades such as Best Film at Rotterdam, Deauville and Fantasia, will the film sweep Reel Asian as well?
