This remake of the 1970s TV series "Silver Mask" and "Super Robot Red Baron" pits two families (one with an armored bionic superhero, and the other a red giant robot) against evil aliens to save Earth and prevent the extinction of mankind.
Seven-year-old Sang-woo is left with his grandmother in a remote village while his mother looks for work. Born and raised in the city, Sang-woo quickly comes into conflict with his old-fashioned grandmother and his new rural surroundings. Disrespectful and selfish, Sang-woo lashes out in anger, perceiving that he has been abandoned. He trades his grandmother's only treasure for a video game; he throws his food and he throws tantrums. When Sang-woo's mother finds work and finally returns for him, Sang-woo has become a different boy. Through his grandmother's boundless patience and devotion, he learns to embrace empathy, humility and the importance of family.Written by

From my personal perspective, this movie is such a hidden beauty inside the simplicity it has. It reminds me of my beloved grandmother who passed away some years ago and I somehow find myself in the character of the young boy. It does not need to be dramatic or wordy to touch your feelings, just the appearance of the grandmother can make you teared up. Her slow gesture, her toothless mouth or her calm face totally created a feeling of The way home for me. In addition, cinematography was on point with many beautiful scenes of the countryside and the acting was natural. I rated this movie 10 for the emotions and reminiscence it brings.
