Sleep in theaters !

Sleep, the first feature by South Korean filmmaker Jason Yu, presented at the 62nd Semaine de la Critique and Grand Prize winner at the 31st Gérardmer Festival, is released on February 21.

This debut feature stars Yu-mi JUNG and Sun-kyun LEE. Sleep is produced by LEWIS PICTURES and distributed by THE JOKERS FILMS.



Hyun-su (LEE Sun-kyun) and Soo-jin (JUNG Yu-mi) are newlyweds. Seemingly out of nowhere, he starts talking in his sleep. “Someone’s inside.”  From that night on, whenever he falls asleep, he transforms into someone else with no recollection of what happened the night before. Soo-jin is overwhelmed with anxiety that he’d hurt her family while she sleeps and can barely sleep a wink because of this irrational fear. Despite sleep treatment, Hyun-su’s sleepwalking only intensifies, and she begins to feel that her unborn child may be in danger…

"The principle on which we based our image was to always follow the protagonist's point of view. In this way, the audience would always be locked into the character's psychology. So we agreed that the camera should also be subject to the physical limitations of the characters."

Jason Yu by Damien Leblanc

"A mastery of set and space, a mischievous screenplay and outstanding acting: a first film that's both frightening and funny.

Les Inrockuptibles

"Yu, a former assistant to Bong Joon-ho, succeeds in marrying opposites, humor and fright, modern science and ancestral beliefs, closed-door living and supernatural vertigo... A real coup.
