such a visual pleasure
10 August 2004 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm recently staying in S.Korea and just saw this movie.

I haven't seen In-shik Kim's debut film, 'road movie'. So I didn't have any prejudice about this movie.

this movie is his second film, and stars Hye-Soo Kim as a character named Jisoo. This movie initially drew a lot of attention from the press and the public because of this actress.

As you may stereotypically think, Korea, and any other far east Asian countries are always lacking of actresses who has a great body, to be more specific, nice big boobs(in a western perspective)It's absolutely a shame, people doesn't accept the fact that Caucasians and African-descent people are more 'gifted' in terms of the size of their breast. It's a commons sense that Asian women are less curvaceous. HOWEVER, this actress Hye-soo Kim, is well-known with her great body, but never revealed it totally, like Jen Aninston. She's been intentionally playing roles that didn't require any nudity. Solely, ppl knew that she has a great body because she sort of partially exposed it in various Award shows for past years.

Anyway, it was reported that this actress was going to have a sex scene in this movie - more than once! that was THE headline in S.Korea, I mean it, it was literally a headline news. it's a shame but it's true.

So, this movie, which is absolutely not a popcorn movie whatsoever, initially brought a lot people to the theater, just because of her. And obviously most ppl was disappointed because it's too ARTSY for them, so most of the normal weekend-popcorn-eating-moviegoers gave a bad review.

I chose to see this movie because 85% of the critics gave a thumbup( roeper & ebert) and especially about the cinematography.

And, I was absolutely stunned with this film. I'm a Korean myself and this one was one of the few that made me seat still until the credits ended, among Korean films.

Cinematography does play a big part in this film, the plot is really psychological, but maybe not that fresh, though. BUT every scene seems to have a meaning and intentions behind it (and director himself revealed some of those in some film magazines) they are tremendously brilliant.

it was a complete satisfaction!!! It's absolutely not erotic in my point of view. sex scenes are just used to indirectly portray the change of spectrum for each character,like Kieslowski,Almodovar.... Hye-soo Kim, who was regarded as a fine-but-not-great actor, had some elevation with this,I think.

Korean ppl who grew up watching Korean mainstream movies and Hollywood movies are giving a cynical review about this film. For instance, they say that the director is overly educated(he studied in France) that he's trying to sugarcoat the emptiness of the plot by using seems-to-be-nice cinematography.

but I disagree, this is opening another door of an absolutely non-diverse Korean Film Industry. And even the though the plot is relatively simple, each scene has a lot of symbolism that works!

I hope that this movie will have a chance to reach the international audience.
