Made me remember the days "when I turned 9"
25 November 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie was nostalgic and made me remember the moments way back in early 1990s when I fought with my classmates (sometimes came home crying), was punished by teachers (times upon my head as shown in this), the friendly nearby stall owner who gives me candies for half price/free (like the popcorn vendor in this movie) and the list goes on. I guess this movie was an inspiration for a Tamil (Indian) movie 'Pasanga' which did win a national award for the country.

Predominant cast in this movie are kids. Initially I didn't expect much acting from kids but was wrong. They acted professionally, IMHO. Apart from screenplay and script the camera work was well done too. Again another Korean movie got me touchy/sentimental and music was good. The bottom line : A must watch movie for all ages.
