superb - all the elements of a truly great film
4 June 2009 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

i wish i could write well enough to better express my feelings about this film and the story it tells through the trials and frustrations of its heroine and her cohorts. after having watched countless films from Korea, this one truly breaks the mold and is of a cinematic standard that most films from any country do not attempt to or can not even approach.

if you enjoy watching films that are built on strong character development without senselessly manipulating the viewer's feelings, or overburdening them with trivial aspects that would simply weigh the characters and film down, Nim-eun-meon-go-sae seems to always go where it should. Sunny is a believable girl who is cast adrift amidst unbelievable circumstances and she never falters in her quest regardless of whatever may be placed in her way.

totally engrossing and consuming on all levels i highly recommend it to any one who is a fan of great stories with strong likable characters.
