Breathless Review 2008 South Korea

Fascinating, moving and haunting Korean film about a loan shark and a high school girl who become friends and bond over their similar situations with abusive fathers.

A great low budget story with excellent performances from both leads. Their performances make this film even more special. The loan shark played by Yang Ik-june will go down as one of the meanest hardmen in screen history... Yet, you can't help but feel for him. The story and the character will stay in your thoughts long after the film is finished.

Brilliant realistic modern Korean drama released in the UK by Terracotta Distributions. The 2 disc version comes with plenty of extras including interviews with the director and actors. A Q&A from London Film Festival. An interesting video diary with the cast going to Rotherham film festival. Trailers and more!

Breathless has won the Grand Prize at the 2009 Tokyo Filmex, the Silver Screen Award at the 2009 Singapore International Film Festival and the Tiger Prize at the 2009 Rotterdam International Film Festival. And the official selection at Edinburgh Film Festival(Great to see Scotland make the cover ).
