Watch: Park Chan-wook's Short Film 'A Rose Reborn' with Jack Huston
"If there is a creature that thinks only of the wind its entire life, what would it be?" Now this is cool. Even though it's a promotion for an Italian fashion company there's something very mysterious about this short film that I just love. Thanks to a tip from our friends at The Film Stage you can now watch the entire short film titled A Rose Reborn below, from director Park Chan-wook (who last made Stoker) starring Jack Huston (seen on "Boardwalk Empire") and Daniel Wu (seen in Europa Report, Tai Chi Zero, Warcraft). The short introduces us to a young CEO who travels to meet a Chinese investor but encounters a number of riddles and other odd exchanges before they can reach a deal. I really love the subtleties of this, nice work.
Synopsis for the short from YouTube: "A brilliant young CEO from London contemplates the possibility of selling his invention to a mysterious Chinese billionaire. Before actually meeting his potential investor however our protagonist must face a number of challenges in the form of journeys, riddles and the exchange of clothes." A Rose Reborn is a Park Chan-wook (Stoker, Thirst, Oldboy, Lady Vengeance) film presented by Ermenegildo Zegna and Stefano Pilati, featuring Jack Huston and Daniel Wu. This was created for Italian fashion company Ermenegildo Zegna hence the switching of suits (now you want one, don't you?). For more info visit the film's official site.
