Ajumma! Are You Krazy?, 10/25/09

My friend Ruth and I went to see this movie at the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF). Since it was only 26 minutes, it was part of the "Shorts". But what a hilarious 26 minutes!!! We had sooooo much fun laughing, it was really well done.

Movie: Ajumma / ah-joo-ma / n.

1: middle-aged women represented as strong, fearless and dependable.

2: friendly insult amongst female friends noting one another’s age.

HIFF : "AJUMMA! Are you krazy? is a zany comedy that follows the misadventures of three Korean drama fanatics.

Fueled by their schoolgirl hormones, the hopelessly romantic Ajummas, Judy (Thea Matsuda), the lovable and innocent heroine, Susan (Tessie Magaoay) the raunchy tough one, and Amy (Cari L. Mizumoto) the sassy tart, go on a hilarious journey to try and meet Korean super star Michael Park by stealing his itinerary, breaking into his hotel room, and sneaking on to his music video set.

Witty writing, a light-hearted story and a likable cast allow this short film to succeed in taking a humorous look at the K-drama phenomenon and what some ladies will do for a crush."
