Mil-ae (Ardor)

Edition 2003
112' - 2002 - Drama, Romance - Dialogue: Korean
Director: Byun Young-joo Composer: Cho Young-wook With: Kim Yun-Jin, Lee Jong-Won
Mi-Huen's life is scattered as a woman in red visits her house and claims herself as her husband's true love. As her family moves to a quiet town in the countryside to start over a new life, Mi-huen meets a doctor in town who proposes her a simple but dangerous game. "Ardor" makes every effort to capture the passionate emotions of each character in high quality visuals. It is a film that overthrows the classic textbook style of love. Love, says the director, cannot be judged. Illicit love is just another form of an intense and passionate love that cannot be denied. "Ardor" is a visualization of the female being true and beautiful to herself.
