Predictable but nice film
16 December 2006 | by (Basque Country) – See all my reviews

Ji-su is the daughter of a middle class family who spent most of their money on her musical education. Unfortunately she didn't have the success she expected and now runs a little piano academy. One day a young problematic boy, Gyung-mi, appears in the academy and Ji-su discover he has a great natural talent for the music.

First of all, if the music (specially classic music) is not your thing, you better skip this movie.

Though the movie is quite predictable, it worths watching it, at least for the concert moments, which are very good. The movie has the typical korean genre mixes, here we have comedy (specially when the owner of the pizzeria appears in scene), drama (in the relation among Ji-su, Gyung-mi and his grandmother) and a bit of romance.

In conclusion, a inoffensive movie but will entertain you for almost two hours.
