Cannes 2011: English Trailer For Na Hong-jin's THE YELLOW SEA

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
South Korea's Na Hong-jin made an enormous splash around the world with his debut film The Chaser. The ultra-dark crime thriller marked Na as a director to watch and we've done exactly that, eagerly awaiting the chance to see his sophomore effort, The Yellow Sea.

On the Chinese side of the China-Russia-North Korea border, there is a region called Yanbian, Korean Autonomous Prefecture. This film tells the story of a man from this region, who embarks on an assassination mission to South Korea in order to pay off his mounting debts. He is only given $500 in advance and takes the job without knowing much about his target. However, before long a series of conspiracies and betrayals bring him to the realization that he has been tricked into entering a dangerous trap.

Also know as Murderer for a time, we've run the Korean trailers for this one in the past but with the picture now a huge hit at home and selected to screen as part of the Un Certain Regard program in Cannes, now seems a good time to run the English subtitled version. Take a look below for a taste of one of the year's best crime movies.
