Quotes

Jung-won: [Sitting on a rubber tire in his old school playground] When I was a kid I always sat alone in the playground after the other boys had gone. Thinking about my late mother, it struck me that we'd all disappear in the end... my father, my sister, all my best friends.

Sweet and Tender, great movie
29 June 2000 | by al2046See all my reviews

If you are one of those audience that expect high impact, lots of kisses, and soap opera plots from a love story, this might not be the right movie for you. The movie is quiet and yet its pace and mode really speak for itself. There are sadness to the movie and yet many scenes bring sweetness and tenderness between the main character and the people around him. The scene of Jung-won (the main character) and his sister spitting watermelon seeds; Jung-won writing out instructions of how to use the VCR remote for his father (reminds me of Michael Keaton in "My Life"); the ticketing girl's gesture of love by sitting closer and closer to Jung-won at the park, the old lady coming back to take her very last picture in her life; all these scenes are simple and yet they are so real and really capture audiences' heart. The ticketing girl is weird and cute. Her character definitely contributes a lot to the movie.

If you can sit through the first 15 minutes of the movie, then you are in for a great movie. Very well done.
