South Korean actress wins at Berlin film fest

Kim Min-hee has become the first South Korea actress to win the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Kim won the award for her role in the upcoming movie On The Beach At Night Alone which is directed by Hong Sang-soo.

“Today, I was presented with a joy that shines like the bright stars… For some, I believe that this movie can bring emotions deep within their hearts,” she said. In the movie, Kim plays Yeong-hee, an actress who is having an affair with a married movie director.

Berlin Film Festival

Ildikó Enyedi’s Hungarian drama “On Body and Soul” won the Golden Bear for best film at the Berlin Film Festival on Saturday.

 

Set in a Budapest slaughterhouse, the tender love story follows the burgeoning romance between a shy young women and her similarly quiet older boss as the two discover that they have the same dreams at night.

 

The international jury, headed by Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven, handed out prizes far and wide, awarding a broad range of international works.

 

Mel Gibson

Mel Gibson is in early talks to direct Suicide Squad 2, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Other directors reportedly in the frame to replace David Ayer for the DC sequel include Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies).

The first Suicide Squad received mostly negative reviews, but still made $745m at the global box office and has been fast-tracked for a sequel.
