Just lovely

First things first, I hate Korean movies and I think there was never one that I've liked. Well now I have seen this weird thing, there it is, the first Korean movie that I really like.

This movie sets the story of a family father of the loser type. He tries so much to be a respectable father but ... life is hard on him. And it is not so much about what exactly he does, it is rather the presentation that becomes quite charming from start to end.

The humor is surprisingly nice and it's not the type of humor that is too much in your face. The same about the thriller like elements it can really produce some tension effectively and grab your attention. It successfully manages to make you wonder what kind of weirdness will happen next.

Of course some things were a bit wacky, some scenes could have been less exaggerated(or even more!?) but if you like movies that are different than watch this. Also it has a kind of anime like feeling to it, so if you like animes this could be your thing as well.
