Goofs

In one scene before donating blood 3 guys are seen drawing water from a stream with something that looked like a very modern tetra pack with its top cut off. Similar to what we get our milk and juice in. As the film starts in 1953 they cannot possibly had such a thing in Korea. Such a plastic coated pack was just invented and didn't resemble what they were using. Its highly unlikely that those guys would have access to such a sophisticated package. See more »

Hats Off Ha!
14 May 2017 | by imtiyazmasudbdSee all my reviews

I don't know how Ha chose this story for making a film! Such a simple, wonderful piece of emotion!!

Technically, not a great piece, just an okay one. Not a great Screenplay, Camera-work. May be that was one of the reasons for its commercial failure. But emotionally!!! Amazing!!

Hats Off!!

Salute to the small wonder: the eldest son, perhaps his name is: Nam Da-reum (apology if I've mistaken his name). I have hardly seen a child in my entire life to cry and act so faithfully!!! May God bless him.

Salute to the Hero and Director of the film: Ha Jung-woo. An honest approach, a great effort.
