an interesting movie...
2 August 2005 | by trinityblue31See all my reviews

since i live in Korea, i was able to see this movie in both a Korean view and also through the eyes of a foreigner.

basically, i think this is a rather cynical view of Korean society. therefore it would not be a good idea for people outside of Korea to base their impressions of Korea only on this movie. it's like a commentary by the people who have criticism on certain aspects of the society here.

some stories are obviously better than others. it's a shame because the less better ones seem to bring down the overall rating.

this movie would not be recommended to people who are looking for a simple escape or entertainment. however, i'm sure many people will find plenty of things to ruminate about.
