interesting dynamic between the two female characters
9 May 2009 | by rougie_88See all my reviews

i thought i needed to comment after the last summary person wrote a scathing commentary. i thought this film is worth checking out, not just for the historical aspect, but for the relationship between the two women and the one man. These women were both expelled from their brothels and brought to rehab camps in order to become model communist citizens, but one escapes in order to live with her lover. This lover lives with his mom who hates that there is a former prostitute living with her and her family. Things come to a boil and instead of standing up to his mom, the lover asks the woman to leave and to find a love nest. Her pride is hurt, so she leaves and enters a monastery. He realizes his mistake and tries to retrieve her back and she refuses. He goes to her former sister-like friend and seeks solace from her. Instead of him going back to the first woman, he ends up having a relationship with this girl. It all goes down after that. i thought the switch of character views throughout the whole film, the performances of the actors, and the camera direction was all done to great effect. There is one scene in the middle that will stay with me forever. i totally recommend this film for anyone who loves the Asian cinema like I do. Although it is a little hard to find and out only on VHS, it is totally worth it.
