A delicious rumination about power and decision-making, set largely in the head of state's kitchen. Jang's film about three successive Korean presidents is as winning as the best of Frank Capra, but while the pacing and domestic relationships may seem as American as apple pie, the settings and political relationships are as Korean as kimchee.

 

With Lee Soon-jae, Jang Dong-gun, Koh Doo-sim, Im Ha-ryong.
