Disturbing but interesting
7 June 2005 | by (Brno, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

Very disturbing collection of 6 short movies which are meant to be seen together. I found this movie to be more of a (fictional) social documentary than a comedy and drama as it is tagged. When non-Korean watches this movie it is all about compliance with western system of human rights standards. The question is whether Korea should comply with western values. On the other side it seems that many values are imported from Euro-American culture (such as the ideal of beauty and importance of low weight).

A quick google research shows that Korea is trying to make progress in becoming more open and tolerant society. This movie is obviously part of this movement (as it was made on request of Korean Human Rights Commission). Let's hope that this very modern country will make progress in accepting more equality and less cruel system of social control.

If you were me isn't perfect (some shorts are below average) but it's definitely worth watching.
