‘Poetry’ premieres in France


The film, “Poetry,” which won the Best Screenplay Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, opened yesterday in theaters across France.

The French Korean Cultural Center announced Tuesday that the film will screen at 30 theaters, including the MK2 Grande Bibliotheque complex in Paris.

Directed by Lee Chang-dong, the movie tells the story of a 60-year-old grandmother who lives with her grandson and the episodes that take place as she learns to write poetry. The film marked actress Yun Jung-hee’s return to the silver screen after a 16-year absence.
