I just finished watching the director’s cut of Jeon Ji-hyeon’s latest movie Daisy. I liked it alot. It’s directed by Andrew Lau who directed Infernal Affairs.
The movie takes place in the Netherlands where Ji-hyeon plays a street painter. I liked the painting that she was painting in the beginning of the movie (at least in the beginning of the director’s cut version, I’ve heard that things happen in another order in the regular version). It’s a big painting of a field. I’d like to have such a painting in my livingroom. I guess I’ll have to go to some exhibitions, but I doubt I’ll find anything. I’ve never bought a painting.
I highly recommend this movie. I hadn’t read anything at all about it before I bought the DVD (not even the DVD description). I’ve seen all of Ji-hyeon’s movies (that I know of) except White Valentine. I think she’s an excellent actress. If you like her other movies, then you should definitely watch Daisy.
