Based on a short story, Revivre is Im Kwon-taek’s 102nd and latest film. The film’s Korean title, Hwajang, is a homonym for “cremation” and “makeup”. Sang-moo, a middle-age executive from a cosmetics company, dutifully tends to his cancer-stricken wife despite his crushing workload. Yet, Sang- moo finds himself increasingly drawn to the beautiful Eun-joo, a young staff member who has just joined his company. Veteran Ahn Sung-ki, a regular for Im, excels in the role of the conflicted husband caught between his duties and emotions. Ahn first worked with Im on the 1981 film Mandala.

A moving and unflinching meditation on love, bereavement and desire, Revivre has garnered rave reviews from recent festival screenings in Venice, Toronto and Busan.
