A Frozen Flower (Ha Yu, 2008)


***This is not a review***

I’ve heard good things about the Korean film, A Frozen Flower. Outside from the gorgeous production value and box-office success, it has also been heralded for its inclusion of homosexuality in a period setting. I was hoping I would get to see it at this year’s festival and was glad to see it on the schedule, even if for only one showing. Alas, I was destined to miss it, caught up, as I was, in the FIFA World Cup finale and its after-party celebrations on Saint-Laurent Street. If this first day is an indication of the rest of my month, it does not bode well for Fantasia this year.
