I saw 69 at the International Filmfestival Rotterdam and I was very curious how this film would be. The story is about a boy named Ken, who want's to organize a film- and music festival to impress the prettiest girl in school. The film contains a lot of funny and beautiful moments. The scene where Ken first really meat his girl of his dreams is very beautiful. She walks through a school passage, the floor is full with rose leaves and they also fall out of the air. The film contains a lot of this kind of dreams that Ken has. Also the crazy gymnastics teacher is very funny. He's hitting and kicking Ken all the time, which makes you laugh all the time.
69 was the best film I saw in Rotterdam and I'd like to see the other films of Lee Sang-il also.
