Underestimated prison movie inspired by a true story, some scenes are real punch in the stomach .... in every sense. intense film, well done! From retrieve undoubtedly
24 March 2016 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed The Road Taken, films I ran after him for months now and finally I made up with many difficulties. Mainly on the setting the film in question and considered to be a prison movie, however, has nothing to do with the numerous American films dealing with this subject, here we have a story or rather to be precise the film is based on a story VERA. The movie from the beginning in which Voltaire's quote appears suggests to the viewer than the values ​​and principles are important to achieve, and that even before the difficulties and failures should never surrender indeed must establish itself and fight until the last drop of blood and to the last breath. intense film, some scenes are quite strong, being shown around ... hunger strikes, beatings, torture, oppression, blackmail .... This Korean film unfortunately though he won the Pusan ​​festival did not have the proper recognition, the film in South Korea has been criticized rather than praised, while outside the country the film is little known, and it is a shame that it was so I underestimated because personally feel that The Road Taken to be a really good movie, and that I deserved and deserves more visibility.
