Purely heartbreaking yet beautiful
9 May 2019 | by mahta_tayyarSee all my reviews

So if I had to write down everything that I loved about this film I would have to copy-paste the whole script with highlights and notes all over it, complete with thank-you letters to the actors and everyone involved in the making. Now, of course, some parts can be criticized but frankly I loved it too much to even dig for those.

The performances were beyond amazing, that hug scene took my heart and emotions, chopped it into million pieces and spit on it at the end. Absolutely superb. Kang Ha Neul never ceases to amaze me, and Jung Woo was -as always- freaking good.

Be it my love for films and cinematography or movies based on true stories or my undying interest in injustice and corruption of our societies or admiration for good performances or maybe all of these combined made this movie one of my all time favorites for sure
