Storyline

A woman suddenly appears at Jae-sus house. Nothing in her hands, nowhere to go, the womans empty eyes meet with round eyes of the eleven year-old boy. He regards the woman as another person wholl leave and does not put any effort into getting to know her. Every chance he finds, the boy scolds the woman, saying she eats too much, sleeps like a pig and uses up all of the utilities. The two of them are neck and neck with complaints until she learns of the boys sad history and he discovers her diabetes. The boy has already had 10 stepmothers in the past. Out of the blue the boys father shows up and begins beating the boy. She tries to stop him and they find themselves on common ground. A warm relationship between the two begins to build up slowly, not aware of the eventual separation that is just around the corner.

Great film about mother/son relationship
3 August 2008 | by ticalisoulSee all my reviews

The premise of this movie might seem familiar to many. A single abusive father raises his son in the poorest neighborhood of the city. One day, he brings home a new "wife" that he bought from a brothel. She becomes the boy's 11th mother, and they start off hating each other. Like any other work of cinema, you should know by now that they cannot continue hating each other, and eventually their interactions blossom into a real parent/child relationship.

The little boy was a great actor, very convincing and played his part very well. I liked the mother as well. The actress portraying her is very attractive, yet gives off a comfortable aura, kinda like a real mother. Their chemistry on screen is great. Some scenes are very emotional, and it is expected that you will cry somewhere during this film. The pace was perfect too. There are no big action or sex scenes, but it manages to keep your attention throughout the film. At the end, it is a rewarding experience.
