I only know one - Hong Kil Dong (1986).

A swordplay film (IMHO a pretty decent one) - deemed kind of a genre classic over here. I think it might be one of the most succesful north korean films to date, it was rather popular all over the Eastern Bloc.

And it looks like some good soul uploaded it on Youtube...

This movie is currently showing at the Melbourne International Film Festival in Australia of all places, but I doubt there'll be too many opportunities in a lifetime to see a North Korean kung-fu movie on the big screen! - http://tix.miff.com.au/session2_miff.asp?sn=HONG+KIL+DONG&s=

I posted my own review of it here as part of this years Korean Film Festival in Australia -

Review is up on the main site....really enjoyed it, once I got past the NK glamorization part...I just saw it as a military action film with nice TKD fight scenes in general.

If you want an actual tangible copy of the movie, I can certainly vouch for the fine work of Jamal...you'll get a DVD sleeve as well as a DVD with the movie artwork on it. I bought my copy off him, along with many other movies in the past.

If you're curious about North Korean movies, he also has 'Hong Kil Dong' available -

I once emailed the North Korean government to ask them about visiting NK and going to the movies. They actually replied and said that travelers are not allowed to go to the theater unsupervised, but that they have some kind of film festival/market yearly that foreigners are welcome to attend. I wanted to buy a 35mm print from them, but they had none for sale or even to rent.
