Beautiful 50's film
10 May 2017 | by morganseerSee all my reviews

A sweet little Korean movie about an arranged marriage, and the upcoming wedding ceremony. The bride is lovely and the groom is rich, though otherwise an enigma because the marriage broker, blinded by the groom's vast wealth, forgot to ask to meet him. Everyone connected with the bride is excited for her, until a troubling rumor gets out about the groom, and suddenly the bride faces ridicule, and the bride's family faces a dilemma. Should they proceed with the wedding to which they formally agreed, and return the rich gifts, or should they cancel it and lose face? Then one family member gets a brilliant idea...

This is one of those beautifully shot black and white films that looks better than it would in color. Somehow the cinematography reminded me of Black Narcissus and of early Ingmar Bergman films. The story is simple but engaging. The acting style and the story reflect the time and the place, so don't expect modern sophistication, but for me they were just fine. The only problem with the film is that the subtitles were provided by volunteers, and are slightly ahead of the speaker.

Nevertheless, I'm surprised at the mediocre (6.3) score on IMDb. Maybe it's not quite up to the 8.7 shown on Viki, where it is currently playing for free, but I give it a solid 8, because it's a movie I truly love and will probably return to more than once.
