As the other reviewer also has stated, this is a very toned down movie. There are no big emotions to be found here. It seems people are holding back what they are feeling. Which makes for a very appealing and compelling (strangely enough) viewing experience. Shot in a very still manner, it almost feels like it doesn't move forward at all sometimes. But you know it does.
I don't know if I am not a bit biased, because I do have a soft spot for Korean cinema anyway (though I do have some quarrels with a few movies), but I really liked this one. The performances match the narrative and the subtle nuances are there to be found. Not to mention that you can interpret a few things into the movie and it doesn't offer any real easy solutions (which again, I kinda like about it)
