Im not sure about this film, Elbowroom – is it a documentary or a film? The info provided by IFFR didnt state any cast … ????

Looking at the list of all the films (shorts or full-length), there are a lot from M’sia and Japan, too. …ooooo~~~ in that case, I need to post another thread on these films…hmm…

  1. mmm … Soo is not quite new rite? i’ve only seen that, Paju and Running Turtle. i’m really interested to see Eighteen and Cafe Noir. i really like the lead actress in Paju. seen her in the drama Tamra and she’s going to be in a remake of a Korean movie, Housemaid together with Lee Jung Jae and Jeon Do Yeon. that is quite an accomplishment for a young and new actress liker her. watching her i believe that she’s going to go far cos she’s just good (just like her sunbae, Jeon Do Yeon).
