Martine Thérouanne's White Card : Surrogate Woman by Im Kwon-taek
Im Kwon-taek is a prolific director with 104 feature films to his credit.
Vesoul previously screened ten of them, including Surrogate Woman, which was shown at the Festival’s fifth edition. Its surprisingly modern and moving subject matter appeals to all audiences, whether men or women, mothers or fathers.
A perfectly styled period drama about maternity, love, the couple and social conventions, Surrogate Woman is carried by the luminous beauty of its main actress Kang Soo-yeon, winner of the Volpi Cup best actress award at La Mostra in Venice in 1987.
Released in French cinemas during the early 1990s, “Surrogate Woman” was one of the first Korean films to be distributed in France.
