Overdosed on high culture recently? What could be better than a Saturday afternoon slobbing out on the sofa in front of a not too demanding film, with a beer and some nachos in front of you? The film is the thriller Desire to Kill, courstesy of the Asian Movies Meetup Group and Terracotta Distribution, who are releasing the film on DVD next month.
After the film, why not take a stroll along the South Bank, take in Kim Sung-hwan’s installation in the new Tate Modern underground tanks, pop into the Hayward for Kim Beom’s exhibition, and check out Choi Jeong-hwa’s installation underneath the QEH.
Two men in adjacent hospital beds – one is paralysed and the other killed the paralysed mans wife.
Min-ho’s wife has been murdered and he has been hunting the killer to exact his revenge. He had also attempted suicide many times, with the last attempt leaving him paralysed an hospitalised. When an unidentified amnesiac patient is placed next to him, Min-ho is startled to see it is Sang-up, the killer he had been looking for. Not only does Min-ho have his chance at last to avenge his wife’s cold blooded murder, he must also do it before Sang-up regains his memory and recognises him and finishes him off.
Immobile and laid up in bed, the clock starts ticking for Min-ho – it’s time to kill or be killed.
DOORS OPEN AT 1pm so that you can get a good seat, buy your food and drink at the bar.
FILM STARTS AT 2pm.
