Strangely Beautiful

Korean film loves robots and AIs, seeming to find them often more empathetic than too many humans, as is clear again in this film. The story is based on an actual historical event that is both horrifying and heartbreaking. This film tries to capture the grief of a parent who lost his daughter in this tragedy but does not accept that loss. The passage rite journey with the AI toward acceptance and peace is unexpected, sometimes jarring, yet tender and quite beautiful. The film works in the focus on the father's love for his daughter and also his eventual compassion for and protection of the AI, thus finding himself again as well as the peace that had eluded him for ten years. Seen as a fantasy with a heart, though the tragedy itself is unbearable, the film is finally quite touching.
