Cranky old people are funny, and sometimes sad too.
22 February 2014 | by Lovechef21See all my reviews

I laughed, I cried, I cried, boo hoo hoo! I laughed. A bit over melodramatic and forced at times, but some of the characters are likable enough. It's a watchable and often funny movie about some old people in South Korea.

The main character is a crotchety old guy who yells at people. Unfortunately I never really got why he becomes so enamored with the older woman, who is the other main character in the story. She mostly just makes sad shy faces, and personally I don't see how that counts for an especially attractive personality.

After watching I sort of don't know if I should feel optimistic or sad about becoming old, but overall an entertaining way to spend some time, as YOU get two hours older.
