The show is one of the activities of the 13th China Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival opened here Thursday afternoon. Hundreds of domestic and foreign directors and stars attended the event.

David P. Buckley, an audience member from the United States, said he was impressed by Chinese films, also ROK's.

The 15 films include three ROK films, "Season in the Sun," " Chihwaseon" and "I wish I had a wife"; three Polish films, " Zhoorek," "In Desert and Wilderness" and "Chopin - Desire for Love "; three Japanese films, "Big Silence Man," "Eiko" and "All About Tanaka Hiroshi"; a film jointly shot by Japanese and the American, "Lost in Translation"; an Italian film, "The Son's Room"; and films shot in Britain, Belgium, Slovenia, Latvia and Myanmar.

Most of these films are already widely known in international film circles. "Chihwaseon," for example, won the Best Director Award in the 55th Cannes Film Festival. By applying harmonious colors and beauteous scenes, the film fully manifests the charming landscape of the ROK.

"The Son's Room," jointly directed by Kenn Brothers and David Lynch, is a "plain" film telling stories of common people.

"Lost in Translation" is about two Americans who feel out of place in Tokyo. Though without a distinct climax, the film conveys cultural conflicts between American and Japanese cultures. A lonesome, home-sick mood threads through the film.

Scarlett Johnson, the lead actress in the film, won Best Actress at the 60th Venice Film Festival and from the British Film Academy. Bill Murray, the other lead, was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor.
