Kim Ki Duk brings incest and self-mutilation to Venice
VENICE, Veneto (AFP) - South Korean director Kim Ki Duk, who won the Golden Lion award at Venice film festival last year, is back in the floating city with a tale of incest and self-mutilation.
Moebius, a story about a father's infidelity sparking a chain of violent events which lead to his wife dismembering their son, was initially banned in Kim's home country.
The Korean Media Rating Board put its foot down over the sex, nudity and incest and Kim had to cut out the offending passages before they would allow it to screen.
Venice got the uncut version of the flick, which is screening out of competition.
