Due to my misanthropic nature, I usually avoid large crowds at all costs. In a daring feat of bravery, I ventured out of my neighborhood this week to partake in a couple of movies showing at the annual film festival here in Busan.
An early Wednesday morning before the crowds
The first film I saw was a movie from Colombia (imagine me saying Colombia like Tony Montana) called el resquicio.
If you don't any Spanish, the trailer talks about a kid that is obsessed with his aunt, and a couple of kids that believe a witch lives in the forest.
The second film I saw was called In Darkness. Is was directed by Agnieszka Holland (the director of Europa, Europa; an excellent movie and true story about a young Jewish man who served in the German army during WWII to avoid the concentration camps).
The movie tells the true story of Leopold Socha, and how he helped a group of Jews in Lwów, Poland hide in the sewers beneath their city during WWII to avoid the Nazis.
I can't say enough good things about this movie. It was a really powerful film, and I highly recommend it.
