"Will You Be There?" is an adaptation of Guillaume Musso's 2006 bestselling novel with the same title. South Korean cinema adds one more feather in its cap by adapting such a fantastic novel and Hong Ji-young did true justice to it.
A surgeon (Kim Yun-Seok) helps an old man by operating on his granddaughter during a flood in Cambodia. The old man asks what is your last wish and surgeon says "my only wish is to see my girlfriend" but she died in an accident 30 years ago. The old man gives him 10 pills which allow him to travel in time to the past.
The narration is immaculate and the idea of time travel is utilized magnificently, going back in past and meeting yourself is portrayed with great ingenuity, a dash of humor & melodrama. South Korean movies are known for this peculiarity.
The characters are developed seamlessly; human emotions are captured well. It also draws the protagonist's conflict with relationships and who to choose, the sacrifices are irreversible.
Attention to the details is commendable here as we see the height, smoking style, hairstyle and body language of the protagonist is similar. The cinematography is spectacular and editing makes the movie crisp as the transition of scenes from 1985 to 2015 happens flawlessly.
A must watch film.7.5/10
