Nice dreamy thriller.
7 December 2007 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a nice movie. The dreamy sequences in this movie gives it a wee bit of a surreal edge. The actors and the plot is nice and even if it's not the ultimate masterpiece, it's got a nice atmosphere to it. I forgot everything else when I watched this movie, which is as good a rating I can give to a non-masterpiece. I like Korean movies since the urban feeling of the west is there, but with the nice spice of the Korean culture with it's peculiarities. This is just another one of a large number of good korean movies I have seen the last years. And I would like to say just that - it's got enough freshness to provide a nice alternative to what-you-have-already-seen-5000-times-boredom. Do not miss it.
