Sunday Morning Stranger in Your Bed: Jeon Do-yeon

At the 2007 Vancouver International Film Festival, the only movie that I bothered to see was the Korean film Milyang (Secret Sunshine). It was a good choice. Jeon Do-yeon had just won Best Actress at Cannes for her portrayal of a mother going through an existential crisis in this superb film, and oh what a well deserved award. Her performance is so unforgettable that after three years I still remembered to call her up to be this week’s Stranger in Your Bed. The film deals with faith, love, and philosophy during a tragic time in a mother’s life. I would tell you more about it, but I really don’t want to ruin anything.

Go find Secret Sunshine and share the love.

    wow,
    I’m quite impressed that you enjoyed this movie. 🙂
    maybe do you know, in the movie, there’s also a criticism against christianity and protestantism? The director, Chang-dong Lee, intended the criticism when he made this movie. (with one more addition, when ‘Secret Sunshine’ was first run in theatres, some churches in Korea protested against the director.-_-)
