    The Spanish director Ado Arrietta was an inspiration to the underground artists since the 70s. His latest film Sleeping Beauty used a systematic production system and worked with famous actors. This modernized ´Sleeping Beauty´ fable begins in year 2000 with a fictional nation called Kingdom of Letonia. Prince Egon is a rebel with daddy issues. Egon gets on a helicopter to the woods of Kingdom of Kentz, in search of Sleeping Beauty whose been sleeping for 100 years. By reviving the spirit of the classical films replaced by technology, the film was able to reproduce the early color image and bear a magical atmosphere. What stands out in this film is the striking visual idea. Images cross human excitement, passion, confusion. Arrietta uses highly visualized strategy to depict a fantastic story that transcend time and space. [JANG Byungwon]
