Storyline

Romances end in blood and the frail hopes of individuals are torn apart in a vile karmic continuity of colonialism, civil war and occupation. After surviving Japanese colonization, Korea became the first war zone of the Cold War. The legacy of war remains today in this divided country. Three forlorn teenagers, Chank-guk, Jihum and Eunok are figures in the landscape of this story, which highlights the global implications of a very Korean reality. None of them is able to escape the withering pull of tragedy. All desperate pleas for love and redemption are returned stamped in red with

Too much drama
31 January 2011 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This movie is a portrait of human beings. There are no "the good ones" and "the bad ones". The characters are victims of their circumstances. The problem I saw in this movie was: there are so many stories that after 80 or 90 minutes the film becomes tedious and artificial. Every single story has a dramatic end. There are so many screams, cryings and dramas that it begins to be artificial. Although I know in war is impossible to have a big smile in the face; in this case is a drama after drama within a whole drama. Thus the movie loses its effectiveness. I think the movie must show more clearly the main story and use two or three stories, as maximum, to support it. I have seen better movies of Kim Ki Duk, that's why I rate this one with a 6.
