Why i like this movie
14 June 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

What surprise me the most the first time i saw this movie was the reaction of the characters, for a foreigner as me it was so hard to understand (even if i already like Asian cinema very much, this one was different by the reality of the characters which was implying the necessity to understand them, not like in Wong Kar Wai movies where it's more imaginary). Each time i saw the movie, each time i understood something more about their way of reacting to things, in this movie the past of the characters is really important to understand the actual situation, their despair etc... and we just have little hints of this past, we have to reflect on our own to understand, to guess and imagine what was their life before, what are their emotions... It's showing you how hard loneliness is, how hard social roles are to take... Each one by to sides of two people completely different, coming from different world, back ground...

A part from that this movie show some really beautiful landscape : the sea, the most beautiful is the cabbage in the mountain...

The most negative point that i see is the first scene of the film that i find of no use (that could have been great not to know anything about Dae-Shik till the middle of the movie) and the second one is that there is some clichés...
