The 1997 film should not be confused with the Titanic movie made in 1953.
When this epic disaster film was not finished in time for its scheduled July 1997 release date, it sent shockwaves throughout Hollywood: studio execs began wondering if they might have another Heaven's Gate on their hands.
By the middle of 1997, Titanic had become the most costly film ever made (its reported cost hovered in the $200 million range) and the bills were still coming in.

Through trial and error, films have developed conventions and styles that are realistic and "potentially acceptable to every human being on earth" (11-12).
Currie also rejects the idea that film involves cognitive illusions, the doctrine "that the film viewer believes he or she is watching real events" (or that the viewer has false beliefs, 28).

 CNN - Government takes ownership of Kennedy assassination film - Apr. 24, 1997   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The so-called Zapruder film, photographed by amateur photographer Abraham Zapruder, was officially declared the government's property by the Assassination Records Review Board Thursday by a 5-0 vote.
The status of the film was ambiguous because, while the late photographer's family legally owned the film, it has been stored in the National Archives since 1978.
The transfer would be a "paper transfer," since the film would remain at the Archives annex in College Park, Maryland, where it is kept in a vault to prevent deterioration.

 MSEL  Annual Report 1997:  Thin Film Measurements and Standards
In response to this growing segment of the ceramics community, the Thin Film Measurements and Standards Program endeavors to provide improved measurement tools and data that are needed to evaluate advanced ceramic films and film systems.
However, lack of measurement methods to monitor film processing and accurately characterize film properties as well as limited theoretical understanding of interrelationships between processing conditions and final film properties reduce most film processing to empirical procedures.
In contrast, the PLD facilities, while providing films for investigation, has had additional responsibilities, the development of in situ measurement procedures to monitor the physical and chemical processes involved during the film deposition process and the formation of models to relate the measurements to the film formation.

 Darcy's Korean Film Page - 1997
The year 1997 saw the debut of a major filmmaking talent in Lee Chang-dong, a novelist who first became involved in the film industry as co-writer of two films by Park Kwang-su, To the Starry Island (1993) and A Single Spark (1996).
However, even after watching the film three times, and for each time being thoroughly absorbed and entertained by it, I still find the film a bit artificial and pandering to the fantasy of its target audience, which the producer admitted was young female workers ("office ladies").
The big payoff, expertly filmed and edited, is crowd-pleasing to be sure, but by then chunks of melodramatic cliches, including that overused bag of chips-on-the-shoulder known as the "trauma resulting from a friend/lover/sibling's suicide," have been mixed into the narrative.

Virzi's student hero (Edoardo Gabrielini) grapples with love, life, and literature in a world where an unstable family background (convict father, retard brother) is merely the antipasto to greater madnesses, including ill-karma'd romances with a manic-depressive teacher and a rich girl gone radical.
