Kurt Cobain and Lemon-peel Angelfish
4 December 2013 | by (Vanuatu) – See all my reviews

This is one sad movie, full of symbolism, a story of illusions, of obsessive love and of death. The story revolves around a woman Aeryun, the new owner of a movie renting store. As the movie progresses, we see she develops an interest in one of her customers, an aspiring musician named Dongsuk, but her interest seems farther than normal. Her behavior changes, she becomes a real stalker after the man she has an interest in doesn't give in to her emotions. At first she is seen wearing plain pastel clothes, then when she starts seeing Dongsuk on a regular basis, she wears brighter, more feminine clothes in shades of yellow. She has an aquarium with a Lemon-peel Angelfish and she keeps the yellow roses that Dongsuk has given to her as a birthday gift in her bedroom. As her loves slowly descends into insanity, the viewer really has to question the nature of Aeryun's obsession, and even the nature of love itself. During the movie, there are various statements about love and what really means to feel love and be loved. Every characters loves in their own way, and later contemplates the notion of it. At times, one can see Aeryun as a stalker, a woman obsessed, and at other times, one sympathises with her, especially with her illusion of what love really means. Towards the end, when her feelings are smashed to pieces and her actions become more and more erratic, the color symbolism takes on further. Everything is touched with a tinge of sadness, of blue. The final scene cuts through our expectations clinically and objectively. In the end, one cannot feel biased or even blame other characters for the turn of the story.
