Trivia

Part of the backbone for the film includes the traditional Vietnamese dress, the Ao Dai. However, the version of the dress seen in the film is a much more recent (and the well known) creation (starting in 40's at the earliest). This contradicts the fact the legend of "Muoi" is a hundred years old. The Vietnamese co-producers should have forced the Korean director to change such a blatant mistake. See more »

30 September 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

"full of clichés" is the first verdict. but beyond it , it is a story. not very original but seductive. and the admirable work of director to create a good scene for the story of Muoi using the old instruments and effects of genre. it is a ghost tale, an Oriental horror, travel of past events in present. but it is beautiful. not only for the collaboration between Vietnamese and Coreean cinematography, not for moral, end and wonderful images.but for emotion far from words. it is a moral story and delicate pledge for basic values. it is not a disappointment exercise . only a kind of fairy tale and fruit of a travel in the heart of Gothic story. so, nothing new. and nothing bad. only an artistic exercise.
