A mother's love is revisited as Asia's top film festival nears end
BUSAN, South Korea (AP) ' A mother's love will be the closing theme for this year's Busan International Film Festival.
Chief organizer Lee Yong-kwan said Thursday that the Japanese movie "Chronicle of My Mother" will close the nine-day festival on Friday.
The 2011 movie was directed by Masato Harada. It portrays a mother who suffers from dementia and is misunderstood by her son. It is based on an autobiographical novel by Japanese writer Yasushi Inoue.
Harada says he hopes the film will help "confirm the great love of mothers."
The festival is considered Asia's largest and is held in the South Korean port city of Busan.
It began last Thursday with a South Korean romance about a boxer and a blind girl.
