Hint: Read the synopsis beforehand, or you will get lost in the story line. The plot deserves better, 2 April 2013
Author: JvH48 from Amersfoort, The Netherlands

I saw this film at the Berlinale 2013, where it was part of the Panaroma section. The story revolves around something that refuses to become clear until halfway the running time. I had a vague idea what was going on and what skeleton in the closet it was all about, because I had read the synopsis beforehand. Failing that, the viewer is left dangling and will probably miss the point completely.

All in all, I scored "ambivalent" for the audience award when leaving the theater. The constantly changing mood of Won-gyu is a dominant factor, complicating our grip on the story more than necessary. The plot deserves a better treatment.
