tender and beautiful
12 March 2006 | by infinito2345See all my reviews

The film explores the tender and beautiful relationship between a father and his daughter.I Have only heard about family ties in Korea.They must be really strong.I didn't find it as powerful as failan but nevertheless it had a tremendous depth beneath the surface.The background music excellently complemented the emotional scenes.I was left with a strange happy glow in my heart after watching the movie.After watching few korean movies,I am really beginning to develop genuine respect for the values which they cherish in their society.

Korean movie makers are making excellent movies which are realistic,well directed,excellent photography,cinematography and editing.Even acting seems to be on par with Hollywood.

I will be really happy if movies like these are released and screened worldwide.They truly deserve it.

Please do see :- "taegukgi" and "failan" if you want me to recommend other great korean movies.
