I cringed at times. "Oh, no. More interviews of couples that tell us what Real Love is like?" But then came the plot detour to uncover the secrets behind one melancholy interview subject.
It was the gentle revelations of her history that impressed me. And kept me interested.
I found the framing story of the filmmakers putting together the interviews and the interviews themselves boring -- altho, one resolves in an interesting way. And it kept most of the actors from adding anything but a modicum of depth to their characters. Only the lovely Shim Eun Ha as the secretive woman shines (in what is sadly her last film to date -- she was only 27 years old when it was released).
