BFI Film Festival - Madonna
Thankfully, the South Korean film, Madonna, is not about the American singer. If it had been I would have walked out. Another film, I'm happy to say was directed and written by a female filmmaker, Shin Su-won. Unfortunately, this screening had no Q&A, which can happen, but I was hoping there would be as I would have liked to hear from the maker why she made the film.
Not to lead to any misunderstanding, the film was brilliant but it is a story that I do not wish to see again. Mostly due to a couple of scenes that were too harrowing and in fact the life of 'Madonna' is harrowing.
