Happy Killing (Femme Fatale) (Korean) (2007) 죽어도 해피엔딩

Happy Killing (Femme Fatale) (Korean) (2007) 죽어도 해피엔딩

A gorgeous movie star invites four men to a party to choose her lover. However, they start being killed and the situation gets out of control. This comic thriller is a remake of French movie “Serial Lover”.

“Happy Killing” aka Femme Fatale is a remake of the 1998 French comedy “Serial Lover.” I haven’t seen the original, so I can’t not say how faithful “Happy Killing” stays to “Serial Lover.” What I can say about “Happy Killing” is that the movie is stupid, gross, corny, and fun, while rolled all together in a feel good Christmas Holiday setting. The movie stars Ji-won Ye last seen in the hilarious and sorely under-appreciated “Old Miss Diary.” A lot of the fun found in “Happy Killing” revolves around watching Ji-Won Ye run around in a tight form fitting dress and trying to maintain her wits, while a serious of lethal accidents occur on Christmas Eve.

“Happy Killing” is a twisted comedy that you will enjoy if you can stomach a few utterly gross bathroom scenes and a couple of plot developments that defies logic. When its all said and done, I did find the movie to be moderately entertaining and able to dish out some laugh out loud moments. If you want a no-brainer slapstick comedy with appealing visuals than you should try to seek out “Happy Killing.” Just keep your finger close to the remote during those gross bathroom scenes!

Tokyo Story (Japan) (1953)

Synopsis: An elderly couple journey to Tokyo to visit their children and are confronted by indifference, ingratitude and selfishness. When the parents are packed off to a resort by their impatient children, the film deepens into an unbearably moving meditation on mortality as they realize just how far their sons and daughters have drifted away from them, absorbed by their own business. Filmed in black and white, this is a simple, quiet story that will remind you of how important family is. Tokyo Monogatari is a heart-breaking tale filled with irony that bitterly rings true for the viewer in our ordinary lives as sons and daughters, or mothers and fathers.

Cast: Chishu Ryu (Father); Chieko Higashiyama (Mother); So Yamamura (Koichi); Haruko Sugimura (Shige Kaneko); Setsuko Hara (Noriko); Kyoko Kagawa (Kyoko); Shiro Osaka (Keizo); Eijiro Tono (Sanpei Numata); Kuniko Miyake (Fumiko); Nobuo Nakamura (Kurazo Kaneko); Teruko Nagaoka (Yone Hattori); Zen Murase (Minoru); Mitsuhiro Mori (Isamu); Hisao Toake (Osamu Hattori); Toyoko Takahashi (Shukichi Hirayama’s neighbor); Mutsuko Sakura (Patron of the Oden restaurant); Toru Abe (Railroad employee); Sachiko Mitani (Noriko’s neighbor).

낭랑18세/Sweet 18 (2004) (Korean)

The concept of an arranged marriage is often difficult to accept, especially amongst less traditional adolescents today. Sweet 18 (Nang Rang 18 Seh) covers this very premise and the story begins when Kwon Hyuk-joon’s grandfather, the head of the traditional Kwon family agrees to an arranged marriage between his grandson (Lee Dong Gun) and Yoon Jung-sook (Han Ji Hye) when Yoon Jung-sook is born. 18 years later, the two families lose contact because soon after the contract is signed, Jung-sook’s family encounters financial issues and is forced to run away.

Meanwhile, Jung-sook has grown up to be a rebellious and strong-willed girl who just wants to live her life as she sees fit. With little aspirations, she is the direct foil of her achievement-bound counterpart, Hyuk-joon. When the two meet each other, they clash horribly; Jung-sook thinks her fiancee is nothing but boring, and Hyuk-joon believes Jung-sook to be nothing but an immature child. The rest of the series follows their life living together as a couple, and the obstacles they are faced with. When Hyuk-joon’s first love reappears and wants to claim Hyuk-joon for herself (despite the fact that he’s married), who will Hyuk-joon choose? His first love Ga-young, or immature spunky Jung-sook?
