Koreans, Tango, Romance, Action, Guns... Bla Bla Bla...
This movie provoked my curiosity when I first knew the cast, and when I saw it was a surprise for me just by the appearance of the protagonist of two of my favorite movies: Kim Ji-su of Yeoja Jeon-hae (aka This Charming Girl) and Jang Hyeong-seong of Git (aka Feathers in the Wind). I must say this wasn't the worst Korean movie ever made but has it's own defects. Is all about a beaten married woman dating in secret with a troublesome cop, tango, guns, romance (not so much), tragedy, and very-very-very much Koreans. Cinema of Korea is world's finest, on my personal view. This movie shown great actors, both of the just mentioned, but not an original plot, neither any original film-making, so it's just a Sunday's night movie to see it with your girl or boy, and be more entertained kissing her/him than watching it. I'm a sincere admirer of Kim Ji-su (This Charming Girl), this movie wasn't such a proof of her talent, but the illumination suited her very well, so I think she must do this kind of movies to obtain a major role in any other masterpiece of all those that Korean cinema provides. Just a curiosity is the appearance of Jang Hyeong-seong, who is very well related with tango loving movies (Git, was about a loser filmmaker and a tango-lover girl). If you want to see good Korean movies, check out the filmography of Kim Ki-duk or Park Chan-wook, maybe Song Il-gon if you like slow and artful movies, but if you want to see a movie well accompanied, then I fully recommend it.
