I love the Japanese director Shohei Imamura. His masterpiece in 1979 called, the English title was 'Vengeance is Mine.'
I regard remaking a film as creating something again.
I'm sure mothers are important across every culture, but particularly in Korean society, the role of the mother is of great importance.
In Korean films there is only really a strong tradition of melodramas.
No matter where I am working, I cannot make a film without 100% creative control and final cut. If there is such a guarantee, I can work anywhere.
