A small winner
4 September 2006 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

This is a drama that creeps up on you. It's a murder mystery, but understated in its story of a depressed woman accused of murder - and the defense lawyer who tries to prove her innocent

The courtroom scenes are convincing enough, but the real story is between the young lawyer and the accused, who seem so genuine that it hardly seems like acting. Indian Summer doesn't take the easy route of so many Korean films by relying on easy melodrama. It's not over- complicated, but there's a naturalness that gradually wins you over in spite of yourself. As gentle a film as you'll find about murder.

The film succeeds mostly as a result of the two leads - neither overly attractive or charismatic - who gradually build a sense of trust with one another over the course of the defense proceedings.
