The Show Must Go On is a poignant movie about a gangsters' struggle in life
8 July 2007 | by (MagnaDoodle) – See all my reviews

I saw Wooahan Segye, or The Show must Go On, at the Montreal Fantasia Film Festival and I was impressed by this out of the ordinary gangster movie. The film is about a father's struggle to provide his family with a decent lifestyle and a good education. It doesn't overly idealize gangster's life and grimly reminds you that death could be at every corner. Yet, it also empathizes with this gangster's plight and portrays him as an ordinary father trying to make his family happy.

Wooahan Segye totally succeeded in drawing me emotionally. It also packs its fair share of violence and action scenes that should please adrenaline tuned moviegoers. There are also a few good jokes thrown in and overall the movie manages to find a good balance between more lighthearted action and a serious message about a father's hardships. The audience's spontaneous round of applause as the credits rolled comforted me in my appreciation of this movie.
