One of the most beautiful movie in my life
18 March 2001 | by kjhSee all my reviews

I saw this movie more than ten years ago, but I still remember

the feeling I had, when I was walking out of the theater. It was 1989, July in Seoul.

Incredibly beautiful cinematography combined with great music made this masterpiece out of tale-like story. In additon to Camera works and composing, you can see Chow Yoonfat's great acting of describing a guy with humble and pure spirit.

This beautiful movie may not impress you, but...if you have a chance to go to New York, please stroll along the fifth avenue...it will remind you the humble smile of Samuel(Chow Yoonfat).
