Give it a chance, you won't be sorry
21 January 2012 | by Patty_MayonaiseSee all my reviews

This movie was outstanding. I wasn't sure really what to expect as it started out kind of silly, it made prison life seem like a bunch of sisters hanging out together all day, having fun. But it quickly became one of those movies that had me sobbing (and I don't cry at movies!!) A beautiful story about friendship, family, love, loss and sorrow with beautiful music.

I don't know how realistic this is of a typical Korean women's prison because there appeared to be a lot of freedom to move about and a lot of unsupervised time, but it may be that the prison system there is different from what I am used to seeing depicted.

This movie was one of the best I've ever seen. The actors who were cast were just perfect for their parts and the emotions felt very real. It's not just about a "Sister Act" type choir or a prison movie, there is a strong current of emotion running just beneath the scenes which quickly show themselves as it goes on. Don't miss this one.
