Captures a Time
12 December 2006 | by cinemagaucheSee all my reviews

Winner of the 1991 Blue Dragon Award for Best Korean Picture, this film captures a transitional time in Korean history as the country shifted towards democracy and the young generation sought in various ways to find their identity. The protagonist stands apart from his peers in the sense that rather than join in with an impassioned but ultimately empty echo of the chants and tumults of the student movement, he seeks to understand for himself, the meaning of the changes within and without him. A classic road movie in the Korean tradition (that has faded out in recent years) of a yearning for spiritual fulfillment and personal growth.
