Storyline

To Chinese restaurant delivery boy 'Ju', the only joy in life is spending time at the electronic game room. One day, 'Ju' who was engrossed in an electronic game as usual, is advised to log-on to a game called RESURRECTION OF THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL. The match selling girl of Andersen's fairytale is revived through the game, and 'Ju' is drawn into the little girl's virtual reality. As reality and cyberspace interchange, 'Ju', like in the famous fairytale, is given the mission to save the little girl from danger and lead her to a peaceful death. However, the two are not only confronted by a gigantic force called the System, that attempts to stop them, but other obstacles that place their lives in danger... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

One of the songs played in the movie is called "Dreams Come True", by Korean trio S.E.S. The music was originally from a song by Finnish duo Nylon Beat, titled "Rakastuin Mä Luuseriin", but SMTown (S.E.S record company) took it (most likely without crediting Nylon Beat) and made "Dreams Come True" back in 1998. "Dreams Come True" is pretty much a modern classic in Korea. See more »

Ambitious, Flawed Yet Brilliant
25 January 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The other reviews here make many good points. It is true that "Resurrection Of The Little Match Girl" is a very unorthodox film and it is certainly true that it does have its problems. But, quite simply, I was thrilled and excited watching it in a way I have been by few other movies.

Most films do not take anywhere near as many risks, or have anywhere near as many ideas, as this movie. True, the film does seemingly try to work in every single genre simultaneously and wildly fluctuate between reality and fantasy, humour and sadness, beauty and violence. But I felt this was a definite strength. From the USA to Mainland Europe, from Britain to Asia, there are so many films that do not push boundaries, do not take risks and are far too scared to step outside themselves and I think this film should be applauded for daring to risk these flaws.

For all of its faults, this was easily far and away the best film I saw in 2003.
