Cannes fever is starting to grip the film world and part and parcel with an international festival is the unveiling of photos, clips and tidbits to appease and tease the rest of us who are unable to attend. On this occassion, we have three clips each from the two South Korean films in competition: Hong Sang-soo's Isabelle Huppert starring "In Another Country" and Im Sang-soo with "The Taste Of Money."

Hong's film sees Huppert star as three different characters all named Anne who all visit a seaside town, stay at the same small hotel by the shore, venture onto the beach and meet the same group of people, including a certain lifeguard who restlessly wanders up and down the beach. For the most part, these new clips encapsulate the essence of Hong's work depicting small, funny and awkward moments between his characters. Moon Seong-geun, Yu Jun-Sang and Moon So-ri also co-star in the film which will probably ride its Cannes momentum to other worldwide festivals through the year. Generally, Hong's film don't easily find U.S. distribution but Huppert's presence here may change things. 

'Taste Of Money,' meanwhile, is Im's quasi-sequel to his last effort "The Housemaid," though it seems to follow it up only thematically, with the story centering on the secretary to a industrial giant hotshot who must choose sides to survive the world of sex, money and power. Kim Gang-woo, Baek Yoon-sik, Youn Yuh-jung and Maui Taylor star in the pic. 

"In Another Country" premieres at the Croisette on May 21st while 'Taste Of Money' screens on 26th. [Flix.gr]
