Park Chan-Wook’s New Film: THIRST

Posted by Dale Townshend on April 13, 2009 in News tagged with

Korean director Park Chan-Wook, who is known for his vengeance trilogy (Sympathy for Mr Vengeance, Oldboy, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance), is looking to release his new vampire thriller called Thirst (literal translation is Bat).

A beloved and devoted priest (Song Kang-ho) from a small town volunteers for a medical experiment which fails and turns him into a vampire. Physical and psychological changes lead to his affair with a wife of his childhood friend who is repressed and tired of her mundane life. The one-time priest falls deeper in despair and depravity. As things turns for worse, he struggles to maintain whats left of his humanity.

 There are no subtitles,  but  the entire Translation below

* Make all those around me avoid my presence as if my flesh is rotting.
* Make me unable to control my body as if I’m a paraplegic.
* Make all those around me avoid my presence as if my flesh is rotting.
* Make me unable to control my body as if I’m a paraplegic.
* Make me live in hell.
