It seems I find myself turning to Eastern cinema more and more for films that offer real ideas and challenge audiences to think about what they are viewing. As it often feels like films from the US are losing touch with humanity foreign cinema is tapping into it more than ever. If you're looking for a movie filled with familiar plot structure, action, sex and violence this is not the movie for you. However, if you're interested in films that explore human emotion and depth this is a gem!
Filled with great production values and an outstanding cast of actors, this film follows a young man's journey in the first portion of his adult life. The movie illustrates the sheer power our choices in life impact all of those around us for both the good and the bad. Whether or not fate or chance plays a crucial role in our choices is left for the viewer to decide. Somewhat similar to some of the interesting films of the 1970's, JUMP is rare glimpse into life and the way we are all connected for support whether we realize it or not.
I highly recommend this film! I hope this film and its very talented (and HOT!) lead actor find an audience in the US --- both deserve one!
