Draws the viewers in with it's emotion and realistic picture of modern femininity makes it worth watching.
11 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I sort of liked "Paju" sure the story builds and builds and leads to nowhere, but that isn't to say the film has a nice pitch and is actually riveting. This isn't some movie that revolves around some love triangle like the trailer makes you believe, it has more to do with a jealous school girl that rebels to deal with her circumstances and unravels the truth about her sister's fate. Everyone put on a fine performance, even Lee Seon-gyoon who I dislike but he fit right into his role. The slow pace and complex character can be a turn off for some viewers, especially western viewers but a lot of elements of this film was captivating for me, I guess mainly cause of Sim I-yeong's character portraying the sleazy husband's wife. The emotion and the way it draws the viewers in with it's realistic picture of modern femininity makes it worth watching.

7.3/10
