enigmatic "plot." Episodic glimpses (often, sexually graphic) of an old married couple, built around the lyrics of "Youth Song."
12 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't speak Korean, so I watched this film with English subtitles. Among the many Asian films I've watched, this has to be the most bizarre. It has an ethnographic quality, bringing "Nanuk of the North" to mind. "Too Young" maintains a tight focus on two or three scenes, and its two 70+ characters, a man and his wife. The film drags, especially during its protracted, grainy, low-light, love-making scenes. I grew bored and giggly--surely not the filmmaker's intent, which seems to have been to portray the notion that old age is not synonymous with loss of vitality and the inability to learn new things. However, what struck me was the emotional immaturity of this couple, not their ability to "get it up." The Korean film "Oasis" was very engaging, but "Too Young to Die" is more a curiosity than an entertainment.
