the sunny side of war crimes
4 July 2020 | by thaicoonsSee all my reviews

A weird picture that on some specialized sites somehow got mixed in with proper good South Korean production. It seems to want to offer a new take on Eastern European partisans during WW2. The rag tag communist paramilitaries are usually known for blind adherence to ideology, robbing poor farmers and war crimes but here they're trying to tell us they also had a human side so they're shown performing a series of mundane and, for the viewer, increasingly boring tasks such as mending socks, cooking soup or reading books. A bit of action is then thrown in, with the obligatory flame throwing Nazis but it all falls flat. I understand the movie had a meagre budget but that's no excuse for stereotypical characters, dull dialogue and wooden acting, all in all it has the air of amateurism written all over it, best skipped.
