FAMILY TIES

South Korea, 2006 (MIFF 2007, Neighbourhood Watch)

Director: Kim Tae-yong

FAMILY TIES

“Here, you encounter a love completely different from what you have known or experienced before…” - filmmaker Kim Tae-yong Arguments turn to fighting, fighting to shouting, shouting to crying, crying to sulking and sulking back to arguing again - but family is family and family is forever. In three very unique chapters of love, relationships are linked and people are brought together, some by blood and some by force. The creation is an extended family of very different characters trying to deal with being in each other's lives until a secret is revealed with the potential to bring everyone closer together. Kim Tae-Yong's episodic drama of familial struggle paints an unconventional picture of love within multiple relationships united through destiny. Winner of Best Film at the Korean Critics' Choice Awards, as well as Best Film at this year's Grand Bell Awards (South Korea's top annual film award ceremony).
