THERE IS NOT ONE MOTHER: Mothers by Lee Dong-eun

The Competition of Fiction Features of the 24th Vesoul International Film Festival of Asian Cinemas (Festival International des Cinémas d′Asie) screened in international premiere the directorial debut Mothers by Lee Dong-eun. Perhaps hidden from the plain sight, as it does not offer a first handed strong political message, the film has a lot to say. What more, it delivers the ideas without excessive drama. 


Paris has many charms, some obvious, others more hidden from the plain eyesight. But a keen eye is a happy eye, as it might not miss the event that causes queues in Forum des imges, the 2nd and 3rd week of September. This year, it is 23rd time for L'Étrange Festival to open its gate. In a way, its (hi)story is a story of love, passion and a bit of stubbornness, as it happens with most film festivals.
