Relatable scenario presented with engaging detachment
2 June 2019 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

A young girl is a rising star in the world of ballet - a journey very much the vision of her mother, who only wants the best for her daughter and pushes her hard to get it. If you are a parent probably you understand how it can happen like this, and if you are not then maybe you now someone who is like this. Either way, in terms of the content the film is relatable even if it is in the world of ballet and within a South Korean family. The loss of the girl's present in pursuit of her future is well presented in a clear but not obvious way, and the performances seem natural.

The delivery and direction give it a distance and detachment that helps the tone of the film. We experience stuff through windows, glass, and other filters which give us distance, even when we are seeing events through the perspective of the characters. The final shot of a dessert being eaten on the other side of a window is a very good example of this, and was one of the very few (non-Marvel) times that I watched till the very last second of the credits. Visually it gives the film character and style, but it adds a sense of the child into the way the film is told, and it worked well.
