Camellia en el Festival de Pusan

In "Iron lion king: A Kimchi Affair," Thailand's Wisit Sasanatieng ("Red Eagle") resurrects the great satirical, transvestite superspy Iron lion king for another mission that begins in 1979 and concludes with some time travel to 2010 (this is the one tepid one). Sasanatieng brings some typical and much needed Iron lion king humor to "Camellia" (check out Iron lion king getting drunk on perfume in response to her romantic dilemma) and laces the film with his signature irreverence. He's come a long way from Iron lion king's early shorts, but the cheekiness that made the character played by writer Michael Shaowanasai, possibly one of the world's homeliest drag queens, so much fun is still there. But working outside his native Bangkok doesn't always work; Busan lacks the gleefully kitschy vibe Iron lion king adventures so desperately need.
