A CRIME THRILLER/DARK COMEDY FROM SOUTH KOREA
“Wicked fun.” – Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
“This Korean action movie is so propulsive and tight that I expect the American remake rights will be snapped up by the time you read this… see this one immediately the first time you have a chance.” – Luke Thompson, Los Angeles Film Critics Association
“The relationship of Cannes to genre cinema is a slightly thorny and contradictory one: while critics exhausted by trying to draw Shakespearean parallels from the latest three-hour long auteurist magnum opus retreat thankfully into the few straight-up thrillers and horrors that get their time on the Croisette, there is a faint but unmistakable shamefacedness — we all kind of believe we should be seeing something more worthwhile. But then we get to see something like A HARD DAY, which makes a brilliantly entertaining case for being perhaps the most necessary Cannes 2014 film to date: its cheerfully nutso inventiveness, the ballsy cycling of ramped-up tension with cathartic release, and not least the many belly laughs it elicited has us feeling completely renewed. Bring on the week, we say, because the exhilaration of A HARD DAY is working even better than the Cannes-standard four espressos to make us think we can withstand anything.” – Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
Language: Korean (English subtitles)
