Song Yu-ri owns it.
26 November 2015 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

This is a pretty depressing movie, it isn't a impactful film or anything like that. But it does get depressing and I personally built some sympathy for the characters. Not much for the boy lead, but maybe a little. The plot is about a pretty lunch lady that gets treated like a dog by her father and all around bad thing just seem to keep happening to her. Until he meets a boy in school who is equally as miserable. I guess it's the empathetic side that kicks in because she had a younger brother that drowned and died. And the movie is about what turmoil each other has to go through and how they deal with it while building a bond and connection through their pain. Besides the two main leads the acting in this movie is pretty poor but not awful to the point where it becomes laughable. Sung Yu-ri is spot on as the distressed and yet feeble older sister type. This isn't a remarkable movie but I was able to sit through it because of the emotional aspect of it. Although the characters keep getting beaten down by others did a get bit old after the first hour in. It's still a okay watch. It gives a realistic portrayal of going through dark times while trying to survive and doing the best to keep hope.

6.5/10
