Description
Master filmmaker Im Kwon-teak, the father of modern Korean cinema in his 102nd feature film, delivers a sobering drama of human perseverance, fallibility, and ephemerality. Advertising executive Oh Sang-moo (powerfully played by Ahn Sung-ki) finds himself emotionally and physically stretched between the pressures of his job, the responsibility to his dying wife and the attention of a young and beautiful colleague. Adapted from a short story, Revivre is a moving and unflinching meditation on love, bereavement and desire—contradictory sentiments reflected in the film’s Korean title, Hwajang, a homonym for “cremation” and “makeup”.
