This movie was corny, with a few pieces of fairly unbelievable plot etc etc. But worth watching because it for some reason I can't put my finger on, really gets to you.
I watched it at a Korean film festival in Sydney. Because the lass wanted me to join her. Expected nothing, then wham, I got to cry a bit, very nice experience.
I don't cry often during movies. When I do, it's getting a little bit of a blurry eye, not having tears running down my face. Come to think of it, I'm 40, the last time I remember crying was when the family dog died over 15 years ago.
For some jolly reason, I cried during this movie. Tears running down face crying. I think it's worth watching just for that reason alone.
Take your lass with you and watch this, your lack of tears when the daughter died in downton abbey etc etc will be forgotten, and when accused of being stone hearted, you can point back to this movie....
