Funny - moving - breath-taking!
18 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

The movie is about a family moving to the countryside because of the eldest daughter's lung ailment. There they meet a wild boy living all by himself in the barn and decide to take care of him. As he slowly becomes part of the family the oldest daughter is trying to introduce him into society.

As I've seen many Korean Movies so far I can say for sure this is the best for now. Most of the Korean Movies have been too boring but this one was captivating the whole time. The instrumentals are excellent: touching, suitable and not too intrusive. The thespian abilities are convincing. I have to hype most of all Song Joong Ki's (the wolf boy's) ability to mime the confused, seemingly mentally retarded and overly protective little Kid within an adult man's body. Most of the Dialogues are meaningful and relevant but the best conversation is the silent one between the main characters. You can automatically understand all that they are feeling towards each other in the process. All in all this Movie was one of the few that was able to make me feel in the midst of everything. I was crying, laughing and holding my breath throughout.
