My Mother and Her Guest (1962)
My Mother and Her Guest (1962)

A Classic Korean Film Allows "A Rare Peek into that Culture's Taboo"
from one of Asian Most Celebrated Directors, the late Shing Sang-ok


director: Shin Sang-ok
starring: Choi Eun-hie · Jeon Yeong-seon · Kim Jin-kyu · Han Eun-jin · Do Geum-bong


This film - along with ONE THOUSAND YEAR OLD FOX - represent the most lauded ventures in Korea's film heritage.

Youngster Oak-hee is the narrator of the film. Through her eyes the audience meets her mom, aunt and maid, three widows living together in the same house. The women are painfully aware of their societal positions and accept their 'duty' to curtail all normal human emotions. Specifically they give the impression - at the very least - of remaining totally chaste after the death of their husbands. The household becomes engulfed in sexual tension when a new boarder, Mr Han, enters the picture.


A classic Korean film; widescreen, uncut (103 min.) version, in Korean language with removable English or Korean subtitles, in DVD encoded for ALL REGIONS, playable on any American machine.
