Chi-hwa-seon a film by Im Kwon Taek

The Korean film festival continues with this period piece about the life of the 19th century Korean painter Ohwon. Beautiful photography but a somewhat chaotic story of a chaotic life and times.

By the way, in the shot on the cover of the DVD, I believe the characters are depicted in sexual intercourse. It's very hard to tell what's going on beneath those elaborate Korean costumes!

Chunhyang is another even more beautiful film by the same director.
