Beautiful, Sincere, Moving Story About Love and Life
13 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

Late Blossom is a love story at its core; examples of the power of love (and that is not a cliché). How love can be strength and weakness at the same time, but always meaningful. How love knows no age nor time.

The film is emotional and touching, but is just as fun and witty. A mellow, yet engaging story that definitely leaves a mark.

Its cast of veteran actors effortlessly and beautifully makes these characters come alive, warmly inviting the audience into the lives of these four characters in this small Seoul neighborhood.

In just under two hours, the film takes the viewers on an emotional and powerful journey, from the first scene and the sweetest of first meetings to the bittersweet final act that truly exemplifies the power of love in everyone's lives.

Late Blossom is an incredibly moving film, warm with a huge heart and brimming with sincerity that will resound in audiences in any stage of life.
