A report on the enemies
22 May 2002 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Based on the novel of renowned Korean writer, the plot is good enough to be released on silver screen. This is a simple biography of a Korean woman who reluctantly drives herself into the turmoil of war-torn village during the Korean War.

The political or martial perspective is entirely out of issue in this movie. Instead, it is dealing with a gradual change of life from a common housekeeper to a military base whore for deploying GIs in the village. The GIs are neither friend nor enemy for her, but CLIENT. They sometimes offer her a better tomorrow but ultimately leave a bereft life.

The plot is intermingled with a myth of the village- the saga of a legendary general on a silver horse. There has been an old story among villagers that when the village is in danger, a holy general will come on the back of a silver horse to save the village and strike off the evils. This mythical feature has been worshiped since the ancestral villagers, and especially more sought during the war time. When the GIs come to the village, they thought they were virtual evangelical saviors without silver horse but silver face.

This is another apocalyptic message of GIs' image in Korea in the future. It conveys cynical depicts of GI criminals, and with low tone, it says GIs are not savior, not friend but another enemy within. The title "Eunma nun Ojiannunda" means "No silver horse will come".
