Some things are never too late to go through
22 April 2005 | by (Oriental State of Mind) – See all my reviews

The first 15 minutes of the film feel rather fast paced and unaware of its direction, but as the two main characters isolate themselves from the busy world and get closer with each other, it becomes impossible not to empathize with whatever unfolds on their journey.

The story itself is a rather simple one and maybe even common to some. Dae-Gyu is a working man, living a stress free dating life until one day a young boy claiming to be his son pays him an unexpected visit. After much wavering and struggle to make his son go away, Dae-Gyu makes a compromise to go on a road trip after which he would return the boy to his mother. Without getting into more detail, this story is filled with fine performances from Chang Jung Lim and Lee-In Seong, considering that this was the first role for the young actor and a surprisingly good dramatic delivery from Chang who mostly does comedy. Obviously this film shares a similar theme with a more comic and subtle film from Takeshi Kitano called Kikujiro, but it definitely stands on its own ground with a harmonious tale involving change, sacrifice and embrace.

I found this film affecting despite not being the biggest fan of teary drama, but more so because of personal associations with the story, perhaps even due to lack thereof in some ways. If you are looking for a good father-son drama with light humor then don't look further than this film.
