Storyline

In-Soo Radstake arrived in Holland from Seoul in 1980. Adopted as a baby by a Dutch couple he is now searching for his true identity. His search takes him along the eight other adopted persons who came with the same flight to Holland. He also visits the orphanage in Seoul where he once lived. He compares the questions and experiences of his adoption with those of his adoptees. He asks himself is weather he is Dutch or Korean. Radstake feels Dutch, but is that because he suppressed his Korean side? In the beginning of the documentary Radstake focuses on his fellow adoptees but as his search progresses, his story gets more personal and is he even trying to find his biological mother. His search ends with a reunion of his arrival group. Exactly twenty-five years after arrival is the group of nine South-Korean adoptees reunited. But this time as adults. Written by Fu Works

Basically a long version of the dutch 'show' 'spoorloos'
31 January 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I saw this on the Dutch Film Festival about 6-7 months ago. I was not very impressed. While people around me were sobbing, i thought.. well you can see this every week on TV, because it basically was a long version of a dutch show called Spoorloos. A guy (the director) searches for his lost mother in Korea and comes across various problems. During the documentary we see him changing from a stubborn, single minded guy to a more open one with a proper vision of the world. Well, that is what the documentary and San Fu Malta (the guy who financed it) wants us to think.. I spoke with the director afterwards and i still think he seemed the same single minded, stubborn guy.

Watch this if you want to see the adventures of some uninteresting guy, who basically got everything he needs in his life, but still (even after the documentary) needs to get a proper vision of the world. Watch something else if you want to see real people, with real problems.

Sorry, but i can't be positive about this.
