BUSAN: ‘Revivre’ Actresses Brought to Tears

The atmosphere was somber at the Sunday press conference following the press screening of Im Kwon-taek’s “Revivre,” the Korean veteran director’s 102nd feature.

The film, first shown out of competition at this year’s Venice Film Festival, revolves around a middle-aged man torn between his dying wife and a secret passion for a much younger colleague. “Revivre” is the only Korean ​film to receive a Gala Presentation at BIFF this year, reflecting his venerated status in the Korean film scene.

Starring Ahn Sung-ki a regular in Im’s later films, “Revivre” also features fine acting by Kim Ho-jung as his cancer-ridden wife and Kim Qyu-ri who was in Im’s “Low Life” in 2004. The mood at the press conference turned emotional when Kim Ho-jung revealed that she suffered from a serious illness in real life, also prompting Kim Qyu-ri to burst into tears due to emotion.
