Storyline

In-mo is an unsuccessful film director with nothing going for him in life. He's been out of work since his firm flopped at the box office and he was abandoned by his wife. Just when things can't any worse and he can't make rent, his nonchalant mother extends a helping hand. She offers him a place to live and In-mo is glad to take her upon it. In-mo's older brother, Han-mo, a former gangster and five-time convict has already settled in comfortably as a jobless couch potato and soon, their twice-divorced, adulterous sister, Mi-yeon, joins them with her preteen daughter, Min-gyeong. At home once again, the grown-up siblings are forced to live with each other. Written by CJ Entertainment

A dysfunctional family struggles to make the mark.......
23 September 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Boomerang Family is a gentle film about family ties and of course reconciliation.

The film follows the daily life of a dysfunctional family as the three siblings move back in with their elderly mother. Some of them are carrying dark secrets that will see the light of day, and then the big question is, whether the family will stay together.

The title itself, Boomerang Family refers to the boomerang generation, a western concept of young adults who move back home to co-habitat with their parents with various level of dependency. The compassionate mother, despite her offspring antics, demonstrates a maternal dedication and you will be moved.

Boomerang Family starts promising when it introduces the various characters in the film. You will love the chemistry among the siblings and their invectives, screams & punches will make you laugh.

Towards the end, the film goes little off the rails but tries to wrap everything pleasantly which is corny. However, it has its moments and at the ends it describes the bond shared among the members of the family.

6.8/10...
