A washed-up boxer, Jo-ha, has lived his life relying on nothing but his physical strength. His champion glory lasted only a moment, and now pride is all Jo-ha has. He runs into his mom who left him when he was little, and comes to live with her and Jin-tae, the younger brother who always seems awkward except for when he plays the piano. The autistic savant, Jin-tae, shows brilliance in playing the piano and video games, and cooking ramen. He is at first scared at his older brother, who insists on swinging his fists at people for what he wants. Reunited with each other, the two brothers learn what it is to be a family.
Another Korean Tear Jerker with a stand out performance by Park Jung Min
Once again, the great CGV Cinema in Los Angeles strikes with yet ANOTHER movie that send tears my face (1987, A TAXI DRIVER and yes, a zombie movie, the awesome TRAIN TO BUSAN)
I love just walking into that theater, not watching the trailer, reading any reviews. I use my Movie Pass and I am treated to magic! Sure, you can read what the movie is about on this page. I prefer not to and enjoy the surprises this movie presented, especially by (K Pop Star?) Park jung min, who creates a wonder performance as a stage two autistic adult.
My nitpicks: the movie is around 20 minutes too long and the last 30 minutes, a tad choppy, however, the overly journey was emotional and rewarding.
If you like great Korean cinema, check this one out as soon as you can see it. I will see again soon! Now, Im gonna watch some Park jung min videos!
