A film that makes you think "there are too many documentarists out there!"
6 March 2019 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

A film that makes you think "there are too many documentarists out there!"

Of course they aren't. And quality comes from quantity. But this is not the one to bother.

A messy story. Is it about the person? For security reasons there are no details.

Is it about the life in North Korea? Yet the action is in South Korea.

Is it about moving to China? Also no.

Is it about the work? But you are bombarded with information about the move and China and many others.

I was curious about Sun Mu. But I have wasted my time on zooms on paintings one can find online.
