a deep slow film... definitely not for everyone
14 May 2017 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

This film have a great dialogue, I mean all the things they said is not just some pointless mumbling (they talk a lot!). Its surely well-quoted from a lot of greatest philosopher, things that only a wise-bearded man can say. That's what make this movie rich, I think the plot is really interesting, but the flow is too slow, they show how the author develops his writing skill bit by bit, I mean after he done his novel, he shows to someone, got critic with a lot of powerful advice, he fix it and the process starts again. Until 1 hour finish, I cant really stand with it anymore with all the melodrama & everything. I know this is a good movie, but its definitely not for everyone. You can enjoy it if you love Hong Sang-soo and Kim Ki-Duk. With more substance...
