Baby, I Love Your Way
21 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

PLANET OF SNAIL (dir. Yi Seung-jun) A touching and inspiring film about a special needs couple. Young-Chan has been deaf and blind since early childhood and is married to Soon-Ho who suffers from severe spinal damage and is just over three feet tall. The film documents their daily struggles to live, work, and entertain in their small apartment in Seoul, South Korea. The film is deliberately slow-moving (hence the title), yet undeniably emotionally potent. Even though it's fairly obvious that this couple has faced some very disturbing issues, the film chooses only to document the most basic and simple quotidian details of their lives, and this only makes them more resonant. Their collaboration to master the intricacies involved in replacing a bedroom fluorescent light fixture borders on the triumphant! Like nothing else. MUST SEE
