North & South
3 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie was part of the Berlin International Film Festival. It plays the conflict of North vs. South Korea. Told from the eyes of a woman. A drama that plays very good especially because of the really good acting and the very good script.

I really enjoyed the conflict and the interaction between the characters. It's like fish out of water as they say. But in a somewhat hostile territory (well not really friendly territory). Not everyones cup of tea I guess, but if you like slow moving dramas, this could be the one for you. Not a movie that is likely to be remade, because this is made with local problems in mind. Still very accessible
