Trivia

The purpose of music was to make the audience nostalgic with tunes that represent the 80's. The chosen songs highlight special scenes and symbolize important themes. For example, when Joy's "Touch by Touch," the lyrics ironically fit in with the scenes on the screen. See more »

Time After Time
31 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Each new South Korean film look me stronger claims my belief that it is for these guys, not a Western film pipelines, the future of world cinema. As in the 90s there was a sharp rise in popularity of Korean music in East Asia, and later around the world, and Korean cinema giant strides gaining its rightful place in the sun, giving to the surface a masterpiece of a masterpiece.

"Solar" - the film primarily for the Koreans themselves, it their history, problems, life. But it really, people are the same everywhere, and the differences between them are so insignificant, that the story of friendship seven "solar" Korean girls are unlikely to be indifferent and harsh Siberian peasant with a bear and a balalaika, and ordinary American citizen, who in theory are not any side should take care of the mental torments housewife from Seoul.

Childhood protagonists not call too much fun, and for whom it was perfect? But fortunately for the girls, they have been a source of strength and joy - «Sunny», that is, they themselves, their group of friends and comrades, support and help, no matter what happens. Moment of parting company I think the most tragic in the whole film, the way friends apart, each will raging river of life, and not everyone will cope with their share had fallen to the troubles alone. A reunion of friends after a 25-year hiatus, not only gives rise to nostalgia old days, but each brings a "solar" hope. After all, whatever the problem, with such support can cope with anything.

Amused few local jokes, not for nothing did the film - a national blockbuster (Sunny looked every seventh Korean), as well as theme music - tracks 80th film added ease, which has become one of its main advantages. Special joy - the actress who played the main characters in his youth. In the movie, they are newcomers, but filled his hand on dramas and TV shows, new barrier successfully conquered. And with such success tape proposals for new work will not force myself to wait.

Ah yes, who can be advised this film? My personal opinion - all to get a modicum of optimism and faith in a better does not hurt anyone. And the option of initiation to the Korean film industry is far from the worst.
