Fajr Filmfest to Review German, S. Korean Movies

TEHRAN (FNA)- The 27th Fajr Film Festival is holding a retrospective of German and South Korean films this year.

Eleven feature-length movies from German cinema produced after the year 2000 will go on screen in this section, MNA quoted the Persian service of the Iranian students news agency on Monday.

Over the past few years, German cinema has been meeting with success after two decades in low ebb, and now has been winning several international prizes.

In this section, the movies including "The Tunnel" (Roland Suso Richter 2001), "As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me" (Hardy Martins 2002), "Napola" (Dennis Gansel 2004), "Enlightenment Guaranteed and Cherry Blossoms" (Doris Dorrie), and "The Ninth Day" (Volker Schlondorff 2004) will go on screen.

At the retrospective of Korean films, thirteen movies also produced after the year 2000 will go on screen.

The Korean cineastes have found new ways to become world famous. The recent productions of Korea are taking a new approach, being far from the same old simple and mundane concepts. The new technology and visual effects have helped their cinema develop.

"Joint Security Area" (Park Chan-wook 2000), "Tube" (Baek Woon-Hak 2003), "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" (Kim Ji-woon 2008), "A Little Monk" (Joo Kyung-jung 2002), and "Dragon Wars" (Hyung-rae Shim 2007) are among the Korean movies that will go on screen at the retrospective section of the festival.

The 27th Fajr International Film Festival will be held from January 30 to February 10.
