Amazing movie
17 April 2017 | by peterxnxnSee all my reviews

The scenario is so good! Anyone can be found in one or another of the characters, with a great empathy, I think so. For a comedy, the script have a little shadow of tragic, consequently enough to amaze us with bold, funny, great dialogues. If the dialogues deserves a few positive adjectives, the acting deserves tens. The main actresses plays their roles perfectly, in the most realistic way; you may forget that you see a movie. All the gestures of Yang Mi-sook (Kong Hyo-jin), of nervousness, of embarrass, of guilt or joke, finally, are prodigious. I'm impressed how the director (and the writer) Lee Kyoung-mi managed to film, to point out, all that wonderful gestures; plus that amazing face of Kong Hyo-jin. And it's not only the actress Kong Hyo-jin; are the faces filmed over the computers in sending messages (Seo Woo, Hwang Woo S.H.), the pointed out of the back and the underwear of Yang's competitor, all that little movements, but so suggestive, marvelous. The director present us a wonderful show, without a trace of feminism. I found so much equidistance in this movie. The images; some of them are really unforgettable even, to say, for a close-up filming technique. And that photo from first, is remarkable, an icon. Great work.
