"A Belgrade apartment divided in two tells us the story of a family and of a country"
Director Talal Derki is able to share the intimacy of a family at war
Directed by Jin Mo-young
On Wednesday 14 February, Valentine's Day, the Millenium Festival opens its best of screenings with a story of undying love. Directed by Jin Mo-young, My Love, Don't Cross that River, is a beautiful exploration of life and happiness, that will appeal to both romantics and documentary lovers. The film won the Special Jury Prize and the La Trois Prize at the 2015 Festival.
This is the story of the undying love between Byeongman Jo, 98, and Kyeyeol Kang, 89. Married for 76 years, they still walk holding hands, fight with snowballs, sing and cook together, and offer flowers to each other. It seems as nothing could ever separate them. But even the most beautiful flowers fade in winter… For more than a year, Mo-young Jin filmed with extreme delicacy the ordinary life of this extraordinary couple, capturing the essence of their seemingly eternal love. The most successful independent documentary of all time in South Korea, this film is a striking and moving meditation on the frail nature of happiness.
