Wonderful movie
1 October 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have to say that the children acting in this movie were wonderful - i felt like i was watching adult actors rather than kids, and maybe that's a testimony to how kids grow up in Korea.

I really enjoyed this movie, it reminds, particularly in poorer parts of any country, how hard things are, and how unfortunately, being tough, also means surviving, and that's certainly true of Korean society and the way kids were raised before.

There were many poignant moments in this movie, of separation, love, jealousy, conflict - i can't remember the last time i watched such a well made movie, with almost all children actors.

The cinematography was really good, and if you've ever been to Korea, it's still like that in many parts, frozen in time almost.
