Korean Classic Film The Flower Girl (1)

Ovation in Karlovy Vary
 
 
The 18th international film festival was held in Karlovy Vary in July 1972.
Biennially held, the festival instituted various prizes, the biggest prize would had been taken by the former USSR every time. But this convention was broken in the 18th festival. A wonder has happened of awarding the newly instituted special prize and medal to the Korean feature film The Flower Girl.
The attention of the world focused to the Korean film all at once: «The Flower Girl is a top level film», «The Flower Girl is more than a film. It is as equal as a university of class educaion» «I traveled 240 km-long journey to see the film. I will willingly run a thousand km more to see this kind of film» ...
At the time, the Korean film delegation arrived at the spot on the very day of the opening ceremony for an inevitable reason. So the Korean film was put on the screen in the morning of the last day of the festival in the sequence of the presentation.
It was said that the presentation of the films on show was in fact finished and the ranking of the prize-award was fixed internally.
However, the screening of the Korean The Flower Girl reversed the situation. The panel known to be sober and severe was infatuated with the film's world.
The rumour packed the cinema to overflowing which screened the film to add the seats, and the house swayed with great emotion.
The Europeans often free to go out unsatisfactory with other films, weeped and laughed with the heroine of the film yet to be rendered.
The explainer sobbed and members of the panel as well as film delegations of other countries could not keep their tears back.
The regulations forbid any handclapping in a preview, but the panel members spared no praises saying in an excited voice «fully successful creation», «world-level film», «genuine artistic work», «the first film ever seen in life»....
On the last day of the festival, at the unanimous agreement of the panel, the feature film The Flower Girl was awarded a special prize and special medal newly instituted deviating from the festival custom.
After the festival the film was screened making rounds in different European countries.
