Scarlet Letter (2004) Review

10 August 2009 8:22 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Originally released in 2004 and now being re-issued on DVD, “The Scarlet Letter” is sadly best known for having been the last film to feature actress Lee Eun Joo, who took her own life shortly after production had been completed. Bearing no relation to the famous novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne with which it shares its title, the complex drama also marked the third and last directorial effort to date from Daniel H. Byun, previously responsible for “Interview”. Although not particularly popular upon its original domestic run, in part due to its adult themes and content, the film has since enjoyed a successful international release, and has brought in more curious viewers, no doubt mainly due to the tragic real life events which followed – a shame, since the film is a superior and mature mystery in its own right, which although flawed stands out from the crowd of the usual Korean melodramas. »
