About Thirst
After winning the Cannes Grand Prix with his 2003 revenge epic Oldboy, Park Chan Wook has faltered somewhat (2005’s Sympathy For Lady Vengeance, the poorly received I’m A Cyborg, But That’s OK in 2006), but his visually arresting vampire movie Thirst looks certain to create a stir: adopting a more lyrical mode than before, this complex and supremely inventive work sees the filmmaker back on top form.

The film has already recorded the biggest opening of the year in its native Korea, where distributor CJ Entertainment pulled in 1.36m admissions ($7.2m) in the six days after its April 30 release. Co-financier Universal Pictures/Focus Features will handle a forthcoming US release, and the film has secured numerous pre-sales around the world including Palisades Tartan for the UK.

Intriguingly, Park takes Emile Zola’s 1867 novel Therese Raquin as the starting point for his story. Sang-hyun (Song) is a Catholic priest who, in an act of moral desperation, volunteers for a dangerous medical experiment in Africa to combat a deadly disease. Contracting the virus, he is at the point of dying when a blood transfusion from an unknown source revives him. Returning to Korea, the symptoms of the disease linger, but he is able to stave them off by giving in to his new, insatiable desire to drink human blood. To his disgust, he realizes that he has become a vampire.

Meanwhile Tae-ju (Kim Ok-vin) is locked in a loveless marriage to a sickly, infantile young man (Shin) doted on by his obsessive mother (Kim Hae-sook). When the priest - a childhood friend of her husband - becomes a regular visitor to her home, Tae-ju’s previously suppressed desires and frustrations rush to the fore. Sang-hyun, locked in his own inner battle between conscience and worldly lust, submits to her advances.
