Director Park Cheol Soo shows that the consumption of gourmet food cannot make everybody happy.
9 January 2016 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

South Korean film '301/302' describes the effect food has on two women who live difficult lives in their individual apartments. Both of them don't have anything in common but it is food which is able to bring them closer albeit with disastrous results. Director Park Cheol Su has made numerous films which have depicted the world from the point of view of women. This feminine touch is also evident in 301/302 which goes beyond the realms of being a simple film about food. The film features a very stark portrayal of serious problems faced by its female protagonists which include both emotional as well as sexual exploitation at the hands of family members. For a film with a lot of drama, the pace of 301/302 is fast as various stories are merged together to advance the overall pace of the film. The sight of gourmet food in this film might induce some viewers to value food as the most important pleasure in life. However, after a careful examination of the lives led by two leading ladies there would be viewers who might be forced to change their overall perspective about food and life in general. One should be careful to recognize this strong aspect of the film.
