As you can imagine, we had a very demanding day at the beach.
Of course, since Koreans hide from the sun, they only come to the beach in the late afternoon, as covered as an Iranian – Which made me feel almost uncomfortable in my bathing suit by the way!

In the evening, we attended a film released by the Busan International Film Festival. Yesterday was the last day, but we were lucky enough to get tickets.

Though, we didn’t really have a choice in selecting a film matching our priorities, the only tickets left – For a film in English language or including English subtitles – were for “Savaged”. Capture d’écran 2013-10-12 à 17.54.18

So, what was Savaged about?
Savaged was about a deaf and mute woman who drives through New Mexico to join her boyfriend (are you getting excited?).
But of course, things get bad. She witnesses a murder and the killers run after her. Of course she gets caught, of course she gets raped, of course she gets murdered. Qnd then you might think: Well, this is it.
But nooooooo; This was just the beginning. Because an old Indian Chief finds her, brings her back to life, an ancient Indian spirit embodies her flesh, and she’s gonna kill them all for what they did. Yeah.
Follow tons of blood, gun shots, ghosts, etc. I spent half of the film closing my eyes and getting out of there was quiet a relief I must say. But people clapped at the end. Well, this is a film festival, we had to : )

Outside everything was quiet, even though the closure ceremony of the Festival wasn’t over yet.
We’re glad we’ve been able to attend the Festival – In addition a good occasion to discover another district of Busan, made of very creative buildings.
