Good movie, but with lots of wasted potential...
4 July 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Given the sole fact that this is a South Korean movie was more than sufficient to make me want to sit down and watch it. And so I did, without knowing what the movie was about, or whom was in it.

From the title and the movie's cover/poster, I must admit that I had expected to be in for a horror movie. Which it turned out not to be. "After My Death" (aka "Joi manheun sonyeo") was a rather slow-paced drama.

While the storyline was pretty interesting and well-told, the movie was just dragging on and at 2 hours long it felt like you got nowhere really. And truth be told, then it felt like you were sitting through a 4 hour long movie. Yes, the pacing of the movie was that tedious and slow.

That being said, what carried the movie was its storyline and the really great acting performances of the cast, especially Yeo-bin Jeon, playing Yeong-hee.

There were some pretty nice and interesting elements to the storyline, which I felt that director and writer Ui-Seok Kim barely skimmed, which was a shame because there was so much untapped potential for a very intense and captivating movie here. Sure, it was enjoyable and watchable, but it just felt a bit too hasted and shallow at certain points throughout the prolonged 2 hours running time.

While "After My Death" is not a particularly outstanding or memorable movie addition to the South Korean cinema, it does have enough contents to make it watchable at least once.
