very thoughtfully
7 March 2011 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

A famous writer, Lee Jun-seop, returns to his hometown to attend his mother's funeral. Lee's illegitimate niece, who has been ostracized from the family, has also returned home for the funeral. While the funeral ceremonies take place, various old family conflicts reassert themselves. During the action of the story, a parallel children's story written by Lee is read by the illegitimate niece. The story describes a grandmother who gives her life force to her growing granddaughter, resulting in the grandmother becoming gradually younger until she reverts back into an infant and finally leaves for the next world.

It is a very interesting movie. Basically its about one big family as story goes grandmother dies and everyone gather on the hometown. It shows all the rituals they do for burying the body (and it have a lot ones) Then the story shows peoples lives how they been lived all those years when they been away. But most of all i liked is ideas in this movie,about the life, meaning of life, family, elders... Maybe they come from far east tradition but its sure is very beautiful and thoughtfully.
