7:00 a.m. TOO YOUNG TO DIE
Park Jin-Pyo South Korea, 2002

(Jukeodo jo a). This disarming docudrama about a real-life Korean couple who met in their seventies and found that sex keeps them young includes explicit scenes, but the couple's sheer love of life—and life of love—turns it into a film for (almost) the entire family. Capturing the couple's relationship with a mix of improvised dialogue and scripted elements, director Park Jin-Pyo avoids arranged dramas to instead concentrate on their everyday lives, where the joy of sex is as ordinary, and as cherished, as life itself. Short: The Skywalk Is Gone (Tsai Ming-Liang, Taiwan, 2002, 23 mins), a poetic rondo set at the former site of the Taipei Railway Station skywalk.

• Written by Lee Soo-Mee. Photographed by Jung Yong-Woo. With Park Chi-Gyu, Lee Sun-Ye. (67 mins) (Total running time: 90 mins)
