The Shameless


With director Oh Seung-uk in person

Dir. Oh Seung-uk. 118 mins. DCP. New York premiere. With Jeon Do-yeon, Kim Nam-gil, Park Sung-Woong. In Oh Seung-uk’s highly anticipated return to the director’s chair since his debut masterpiece Kilimanjaro in 2000, Cannes award-winning actress Jeon Do-yeon plays a bar hostess in love with a suspected murderer. Kim Nam-gil (The Pirates) is outstanding as a detective who plays a game of seduction with a dangerous woman. Selected for the Un Certain Regard program at the Cannes Film Festival, The Shameless is an unforgettably stylish noir.

“A mellow pleasure to be slowly savored” — Maggie Lee, Variety

Oh Seung-uk (b.1963) began his career as an assistant director to Lee Chang-dong, co-writing his debut feature Green Fish. In the late 1990s, he co-wrote the landmark romance Christmas in August and Park Kwang-su’s ambitious historical drama The Uprising. Oh made his debut as a director with the crime thriller Kilimanjaro in 2000. The Shameless is his long-awaited second feature.
