Korean-Chinese director Zhang Lü (“A Quiet Dream”) is back working with Park Hae-il and Moon So-ri with his latest film “Ode to the Goose”. The film premiered at the Busan International Film Festival this month.
Yoon-yeong has been harboring feelings for Song-hyeon, a friend’s wife. When he finds out that she is divorced, Yoon-yeong and Song-hyeon take a trip to Gunsan on a whim. They find lodging at an inn where the middle-aged owner lives with his autistic daughter who does not leave her room. The four become star crossed lovers in the city of Gunsan. The film could be named “Gunsan,” as it is a film about a specific place, which also explores the world’s hidden, unspoken elements.
“Ode to the Goose” features an all-star cast including Park Hae-il (“The Last Princess”, “War of the Arrows”), Moon So-ri (“The Running Actress”, “Oasis”) as well as Jung Jin-young (“Pandora”, “The King and the Clown”) and Park So-dam (“The Throne”, “Veteran”) as the owner of the inn and his daughter respectively. This will be Park Hae-il’s third collaboration with Zhang Lu and Moon So-ri’s second, with both actors having worked previously together in the director’s “Love and…”. The film is set to release in South Korea on November 8th, 2018.
