Jung decided to return, for the first time, in South Korea, in order to breath the air of his home country, tread the land of his ancestors, and maybe find traces of his biological mother. This trip of reconciliation with his roots and with himself, shot as a documentary, leads our character to recall in animation Written by Anonymous

Another great animated film
9 September 2012 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I read the 2 comic strip books and had anxiously been waiting for the film. I loved both. The film goes more into his origins, but in the end, it's very close to the book. The animation and drawings are art. Brilliant. As the mother of an adopted child, it's wonderful to see the subject taken to such a level, both emotionally and artistically. Go see it. The story flows easily and takes you to his origins, or what he remembers of them, to his arrival in Belgium, where he was adopted. There are a few passages missing in the movie from the book, which I would have liked to have seen, but it is still very faithful to the book. Now, I am waiting for the third volume then the second movie. I think it will appeal also to those with no adoption links, but will make you realize some things you may never ave thought of regarding adoption and even family dynamics. Enjoy
