Excellent cinematography & Music, Revolution in Korean movie!
19 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

I saw this 3 years ago when I was in Army. The director of "Gingko bed" took mega hit his second work -- is called "SWIRI" --espionage thriller between North Korea & South Korea.(this movie is threatening total gross of "Titanic" in these days in Korea) What I like to say is this movie is a milestone of Korean movie-- especially cinematography, special effects. Soundtrack of this movie is very beautiful.. But, story lacks tense and climax, but overall this movie had captivated korean people's feeling -- grudge, sorrow, shame..

I hope this movie will be reproduced in English caption, better sound, and picture quality. So other sides of the people will understand Korea and Korean culture.
