Makes you stop and think...
11 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My wife and I drove up from DC to catch the premiere. We'd never been to an 'indie' film or been to a film festival, and so weren't quite sure what to expect. We left wishing we could stick around another day to watch it again.

The story itself is not unique, but the way it's applied and used to paint a larger picture most definitely is. The cost of assimilation, as well as the cost of failing to assimilate, are both presented in stark contrast. It's something that anyone who's ever lived in a culture outside of their own can relate to - not just Korean, or for that matter, Asian, immigrants.

The quality of production, acting and writing is all top notch, and not once during the film did I ever find it to be lesser than the hundreds of Hollywood flicks I've seen in my years. There's action, comedy, suspense, and all of it serves a purpose.

The only thing I'm finding myself regretting is that we didn't book a hotel and stick around for the second screening.
