Berlin invites ‘Mismatched Nose’

Jan 16,2019
Director Im Kwon-taek’s film “Mismatched Nose” (1980) has been invited to the Berlin International Film Festival.

The Korea Film Archive announced Tuesday that the movie, which was recently digitally restored, will be screened in the Berlinale Classics section of the film festival.

“Mismatched Nose” is a story about an encounter between two men following the Korean War. Song Gi-yeol, a former policeman who loses his job after failing to capture a communist named Jjak-ko, finally finds him after 30 years.

Director Im is considered one of the greatest film directors in Korea; he produced more than 100 films over 50 years. The film “Mandara” (1981) was invited to the film festival in 2002 and the director was awarded Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival for his film “Chihwaseon” the same year.
