a very good production !
14 March 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

If you love story about heroes and plane, if you love movie with beautiful pictures and great music "blue swallow" is for you ! If you love great actors who know to join smile and tears this is again for you ! The story of this little lady who dreams to be the first Korean female to become a pilot is very moving. Made of smile, tears, love in a difficult historic context. The actress is charming with her face's expression and her capacity to play the strong woman and the minute after the fragile lover girl...

I recommend this movie if you want to discover the Korean cinema.

Not a display of special effects, just a mix of feelings for this "blockbuster" !
