"Love Story" for Korean audiences...
21 November 2007 | by bretwSee all my reviews

I'm not certain why Korean audiences are going through the "sappy love story" phase that the United States had to endure in the 1970s, but "My Girl and I" follows the same dubious steps as "Ryan's Song" and "Love Story" complete with heart-wrenching tragedy, young love, class struggles, and with the oddly Korean addition of broad comic sidekicks without which the film would be unbearable. Beautifully shot, and acted with a heavy gravitas, the script is the biggest fault in the movie, with overly-ripe dialog which becomes more earnest and overbearing as the film progresses. The music is similarly unsubtle, with thundering strings and a solo piano line increasing in volume whenever a tragic scene raises it's head. Perfect date movie for the romantic sentimentalist foreign-film enthusiast (you know who you are).
