The Fantasia International Film Festival, which marks its 25th anniversary this year, will be the most influential genre film festival in North America from August 5th (Thursday) to August 25th (Wednesday). <External Rain> is officially invited to Cheval Noir, a competitive section of the Fantasia International Film Festival, and will meet with overseas audiences through a screening of theaters on August 7 (Saturday). This year’s Fantasia International Film Festival will be held as a hybrid event that combines online and offline events, with only about 13 films being screened in theaters out of about 100 films, making the screening of “External Rain” even more meaningful.
Nicolas Archambault, co-director of Asian programming at the Fantasia International Film Festival, said, “Since the Cannes film “The Villain War,” director Lee Won-tae’s first production of agricultural production, starts with an explicit social satire and turns it into a violent thriller composed of corruption, insider trading and organized crime. The main actor Cho Jin-woong shows off his best acting skills in his career. He plays an ugly yet attractive character, showing the three-dimensional aspect of a politician in reality. “Foreign Rain” is a must-see piece with immersive music, captivating plot and clever twist,” he said. In particular, <Foreign Rain> is nominated for the Best Asian Film category selected by the audience, along with the competition section of Cheval Noir, drawing attention to whether it will win the award.
“Foreign Rain,” which was officially invited to the Fantasia International Film Festival, the largest genre film festival in North America and emerged as the most anticipated film in the second half of 2021, is drawing attention as a legendary combination of director Lee Won-tae and actors Cho Jin-woong, Lee Sung-min and Kim Moo-yeol. Director Lee Won-tae, who is well-received for his excellent production that maximizes genre fun, will present a thrilling story and speedy development through <Foreign Rain>, giving the genre of pleasure of crime noir. On top of that, Cho Jin-woong, Lee Sung-min, and Kim Moo-yeol are expected to overwhelm the screen by portraying the fierce confrontation of unpredictable characters with tension with “Hae-woong,” “Soon-tae,” and “Pildo,” which move only for their own purposes.
