MUBI: Watch and Discover Movies

To close three films released this year, different from each other but equally interesting.

In BLANK NARCISSUS (PASSION OF THE SWAMP) a porn director comments on the reinterpretation of one of his films from the 70s.

THE CASSANDRA CAT by Vojtěch Jasný is a lyrical film about a magical cat. It won three awards at the 1963 Cannes Film Festival, including the Special Jury Prize.

In December we continue with “Burning secrets: a review of Lee Chang-dong”, a focus on the South Korean director with two of his best known works. POETRY of 2010, winner of the Best Screenplay award at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival, is the touching portrait of Yang Mi-ja, an elderly caregiver grappling with shocking family events. Based on Haruki Murakami’s short story Burning Barns, BURNING is an evocative exploration of a love triangle marked by class differences and its emotional implications for protagonist Jong-su.
