Film Trailer: Good Morning Mr. President

2009. South Korea. Written and directed by Jang Jin. With Lee Soon-jae, Jang Dong-gun, Ko Doo-sim, Im Ha-ryong. A delicious rumination about power and decision-making, set largely in the head of state’s kitchen. Jang’s film about three successive Korean presidents is as winning as the best of Frank Capra, but while the pacing and domestic relationships may seem as American as apple pie, the settings and political relationships are as Korean as kimchee. In Korean; English subtitles. 132 min.

Screening as part of Yeonghwa: Korean Film Today
