Interesting, and Unexpected
24 January 2007 | by kobhartSee all my reviews

Two guys run into this woman in Seoul and being convinced she is the runaway daughter of an old man on his death bed, they start talking to her. They had been looking for her for a long time, so even though she denies being the girl, they ask to come back the country-side with them and pretend that she is the daughter, to grant the dying man his last wish. I think what stuck me the most was the picture that this movie painted of a family in grieving over a dying loved one. It seemed genuine, it seemed authentic. It wasn't overdone, and the situation wasn't exploited just to squeeze a few tears out of the viewers. Also, it could have just as easily have been an American family in the same situation. I guess the subject matter is just so universal, if you've ever lost a loved one, you can relate. It was an interesting glimpse into South Korean rural life. I found that I relate to this setting a lot more than I would had the whole movie been set in the big city. The movie had an original concept, and a good story. It delivered. I give it a 7.
