WHAT A MAN WANTS (Directed by Lee Byeong-heon)***

Totally funny without being over the top. South Korean attitudes a la New York where the director lives this romantic comedy is about over and covert cheating on wives – even though one knows about it – and about the downside of marriage. One woman in particular has both brother-in-law and brother vying for her. Adultery has never been so playful, and we don’t scorn what we see, but laugh with all the characters – including  those unlucky wives. But here’s the thing: is food more important than love? They seem to be happy bedfellows. Seok-geun and Bong-soo steal the acting kudos! (Screened at New York Asian Film Fest and Fantasia)
