So Yong Kim's previous films, In Between Days (2006) and Treeless Mountain (2008), both dealt with the repercussions of having absentee fathers. Here, she tackles a similar subject but this time from the point of view of the absentee father himself. See more »
I am pretty sure that a lot of people will not like this film due to the slow pace but it's most definitely worth a watch. Paul Dano the main actor has done a great job in his career and this is no exception, he carries this film all the way through and although he plays a very passive role you have to look a little beyond this to realise it.
A fantastic film from So Yong Kim and the cast. This was visually effective too. One scene that stood out for me was the bar scene (not going into any details for people reading this). Definitely a high rated film and executed well.
Make sure you give this film a view.
