Enjoyable "European style" story
28 April 2003 | by JazBrownSee all my reviews

I quite enjoyed this film -- even though with Korean dialog, without subtitles, and with my inability to understand Korean -- I couldn't understand what was said or the details of the plot. But I was pleasantly surprised by the style of film, conveying to me an emotionally attuned perspective to the events of the primary characters (something of an "European style" film, in my perspective. This is not a film full of action scenes and special effects; I enjoyed its focus on the lives of the primary character (the teacher) and his five students.
