Total tearjerker... and I still fell for it...
9 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Having watched so many Korean movies and dramas that end with someone having a terminal illness (Autumn in My Heart, I'm Sorry I Love You, remember those?) I thought I'd discovered all the tearjerker tricks... Nothing, however, could have prepared me for this one... Unlike the previous deals, the illness doesn't so much kill you physically as it does mentally, and trust me, that is much much worse... First of all I'd like to commend the screenwriter for hitting the right spot with the first half... I thought the history between the couple is presented really well... I don't know why some people think it's too fast-paced cos it is possible for people to fall in love and get married in that amount of time, and I thought the use of elliptical editing was just right, not so excessive that you feel like you're seeing a trailer... The second half is the one that I think felt a little bit rushed, but the story is so mesmerizing that honestly you don't really care... And Cheol-soo is one heck of a husband, I don't know if I'd ever be able to do what he did (and let me warn you girls, that guys like Cheol-soo exist only in movies)... And I didn't think the ending was ambiguous, more like open-ended... The last scene is guaranteed to make you shed buckets... The cinematography is beautiful, as others have mentioned... They did a lot of close-ups with both characters in the same frame, which I think is really endearing... And also panoramic shots of the land where they wanted to build their house which were beautiful... My favorite thing, however, is the soundtrack... The Spanish songs are right on target but my absolute favorite is when they played "Nessun Dorma!" from Turandot (my favorite aria of all time) during the wedding scene... I cried, and it wasn't even the sad part yet... All and all, fabulous, fabulous movie... 10/10
