Cross the border, one day!
7 September 2018 | by magbfpSee all my reviews

Very simple story with a very strong and deep concepts. On The Border is really the story of our real life, no exaggeration, no extra dramatic points, no complexity but a simple narration of our real life to stay hopeful despite of troubles and failures. Its simplicity in storytelling never spoils its powerful concept and meaning which is obvious at the final look of the boy on the border line. He has no other choice but to get back to first square and try to cross it later. He wont give up, since he has proven himself as a guy who is strong enough to cross the border when he decided to study in S.Korea instead of China, when he began to resist against his father.
