This is a great movie that deserves the best picture award. I've seen this movie over 10 times and I love it every time. It is a great drama with a great story. The movie is not just a great story but a great drama as well. The cast is perfect, with Kim Hye-su (Choi-ok) and Yang Hyun-woo (Jin-hye) doing a wonderful job. This is a great drama that deserves to win Best Picture.

After watching the documentary of Park Chan-wook's documentary I found the movie to be a very interesting. I must say, it's a very important film. It's a great movie to watch for people who want to understand Korean history and culture. I'm glad that this movie is so popular and I hope that more people will like it. There is one thing that I didn't like about this movie. I found that I didn't like the way that the film makers make the movie. They have some parts that were a bit hard to understand. But the movie is so great and the actors in it are very good. This is one of the most famous Korean dramas that I have ever seen and I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in Korean history. My Rating: 10/10

I have watched a lot of Korean movies, I don't know what I am missing, but this is a movie I am happy to say I've seen. This is not a movie that is worth a repeat viewing, but I was deeply moved by it. The acting is top notch and so is the direction. In my opinion, this is one of the most compelling films I've ever seen. I'm not sure how to explain it, but it's just like walking through a hall of mirrors, you can see your own reflection in almost every scene, and then you see someone else's reflection. At the end of the film, it's like you are seeing yourself, but it's not the same person, you know that now. You've got to see it to believe it. The direction is superb, the story is very profound, and the acting is excellent. I have never seen such a deep, sad and emotionally satisfying film. It's probably not for everyone, but I give it a ten because it's the first film I have seen that I was moved by and it deserves a great mark of praise.

When I first saw this movie I was in elementary school, but I didn't really get into it until after I graduated. This movie was so realistic and true to life. The story of this movie was so true and it was very interesting to see the way the war affected people and how they became what they were. It was great seeing how a teacher can change a student and how he has to change a student. The movie also made me think of how great the Korean people were in the 60's and 70's and how people have really changed in that time period. The movie also shows the country of Korea and how people of the country have to make changes to their country and how they have to change. The movie also showed how they are very loyal to their country. I liked the way the movie was done and it was very unique. It made me feel like I was watching a documentary. It was a great movie and I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a movie that is true to life.

I saw the movie first time in October 2008, and I'm still in tears. I didn't know much about Korean movies, and the first movie I saw was 'King Of Kings'. I don't know why, but I was so impressed with it. This movie is so well-done and so beautiful that it made me cry more than a dozen times. I don't know if I should compare it to 'King Of Kings', because I saw it only once. But I do think that it is much more powerful than that. 'Lee' plays a famous Korean composer who's having a difficult time living in the North. He is living with his mistress and his dog. The dog is also having a difficult time living in the North. He is such a happy man that he doesn't feel any pain. His life is going so well, but he gets really angry and frustrated when he finds that his mistress is being sent away. He refuses to allow his mistress to leave, but his mistress won't leave. 'Lee' also gets angry and frustrated when he sees his dog's suffering and his mistress and dog's separation. He also feels that he doesn't have anything to live for anymore. He feels that he will always be a bit man with no hope and no one to talk to. But, the movie is moving and so beautiful that I don't want to stop watching it. It is the most powerful movie I have ever seen. I have not cried like this in a long time. It made me cry like a baby.

I had the privilege of attending the premier of this film in Seoul. The cinematography, sound and editing were magnificent. I've read some reviews that said it was a re-write of the Memento. I can't speak for that because I only watched the first two films, but I can tell you that this was the opposite. The characters in the first two were more lovable and compelling. Here, there was a strong and interesting script and story. It was very hard to take it seriously at times, but that was the only downside. The acting was very well done, and I think they did an excellent job. All the characters were well thought of, and it seemed as though the director was aware of their performances. The visual effects were really amazing, and the sets were as real as possible. This was one of the best movies I have seen in a while. I had such a great time, and I can't wait for the next film.

After I watched this movie I immediately got my head on my hands and said out loud, "You have to be kidding me, this is a masterpiece!" I was absolutely blown away. The story is very unique, the cinematography is amazing, and the acting is spectacular. This is a Korean movie. If you can get through the somewhat slow start, you will love this movie. Just don't go into it expecting a Hollywood masterpiece. The movie is pretty much straight forward, there is no depth in the story or anything. If you think that this is going to be the same formula Hollywood has been using for decades, you are absolutely wrong. If you want to see a good story, try The Hours or Taxi Driver. I highly recommend this movie. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good story. I also strongly recommend that you see it on a big screen. I watched it in IMAX 3D and the movie was absolutely amazing.

It is a very powerful film that brings out the true feelings of one's country. The cinematography is incredible and the story is told with a great amount of passion. It shows a culture that is incredibly alive and that is being influenced by all the things around it. The way the movie is told, however, is not only the best ever seen in the history of the cinema, it is also a true love story, where love is like a little worm in the eyes of the hero. The actors are perfect and their acting has always been very touching. All the different colors of the film come together to make the story complete. The only downside is that the story does not end the way I thought it would. But that doesn't matter because the film is very powerful and emotional. The film is now on my favorite list and will always be on my list.

Korean love stories are actually very common in their portrayal of love between siblings, as is portrayed in this film. The protagonist is a young Korean woman who is struggling to be accepted by her family and society. She is an alcoholic and she lives in an impoverished rural area. She has an elder sister who lives with her and is also suffering from the same social difficulties. This is a film about overcoming adversity. It's also about trying to love and accept the other person without being coerced or pushed down. In the end the family decides that the sister must be given a proper education and has to leave the family, but is reluctant to make the necessary moves because of her need for alcohol. The sister is initially not at all happy with this decision and goes to live in Japan. As she slowly matures and moves on, she learns to accept her situation, while also learning to love. This is a very touching story about a young woman's struggle with a social crisis. The film is very authentic. The only thing I disliked about this film is the overly realistic depictions of alcoholism and the ending. It is highly unrealistic that a person who has been drinking all her life and is now in her mid-thirties can suddenly stop drinking and live in a comfortable state of mind with the help of an alcohol detox centre. The end just seemed like it was a cheap attempt to save a one-dimensional character and didn't match the film's other attributes.

When I read the book 'Once Upon A Time In China' by Ch'ang-t'ai-sao, I was very disappointed because the book was very dramatic and had many interesting scenes but it was very slow. I read the novel again when I was in college and it was not as intense but I was able to read it fast and I loved it. The movie is really similar to the novel. It is more of a drama than a western movie. The characters are not like the novel, but it still had some elements. My favorite characters were the major players who were really important in the book. I really liked the plot. I think it was very well written. I thought it was very good because it had a slow, intimate and beautiful story. It was one of those movies that have a lot of visual beauty but it was not flashy. I love this movie because I love the characters and the slow and intimate story. It is really different from the story that the novel had. I think this is the movie that the director really wanted to make and he did a really good job. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a story and characters. I really enjoyed the movie. I think this is one of those movies that I will see again. The movie is not a masterpiece but it is definitely a good movie. I really enjoyed it.

So I finally watched the movie because I heard that it was great. And what a good movie. The movie tells the story of a famous Korean boy that was born in a small village in the middle of a province in Japan, and his younger brother and his two sisters who were brought to America by their parents. The brother was not born in America but was born in Japan. Because of a tragedy that happened during the war, the older brother was born with American eyes and the younger sister with Japanese eyes. The parents wanted to get rid of them, so they had to marry one of their daughters, but the wife of the older brother was really unhappy and they were separated and did not see each other. The older brother goes to the U.S. and goes to America in the end of the war, but his older brother is still in Japan. When he comes back to Korea, he finds out that his older brother is not in Japan anymore and does not know about his parents. So he goes back to Japan to find him. The movie is great. It is not as bad as some people say. I think the movie shows the story of Korea during the war and how people reacted in that time period. It shows the way people got along and their misunderstandings. And the part where he finds out his older brother is not in Japan anymore is also great. I would recommend this movie to everyone. I think that everyone should watch it.

The movie is a depiction of the sexual repression and corruption of the Korean Emperor's daughter Ji-won and his best friend (or as the film label them: "pro-Japanese") Jihwoon. There is a wonderful story about the hardships endured by Ji-won, a reluctant princess of the Korean Empire, in which she and her childhood friend Jihwoon must sacrifice themselves for the greater good. The film is the most well-made Korean movie I have ever seen, I can tell. The direction is first rate, the acting is top notch, and the story is unforgettable. It will give you a tear, make you laugh, and remind you of the dangers that faced the Korean people in the era of the Japanese. Great movie, good story, great acting, beautiful camera work. There are some flaws in the story, such as Ji-won's back story, but I did not care. It is a very well-made film, I give it a 9 out of 10. If you love the Korean movies, you will love this one. This movie is not for everyone. If you do not like the Korean movies, you may not like this one. It is a very good movie.

I've never been able to watch a Korean movie before, but this was a great experience. The cinematography was amazing, the characters were perfectly developed and the actors were all very talented. I also appreciated how the movie did not portray the Korean family at all, but instead portrayed a family with many flaws. I thought that the movie had a very realistic look, with the old-fashioned family who cared for their family and were not above cheating in order to get their way. The scene where they were driving away from the airport to the country had a very strong emotional effect on me, as well as the scene where the father was murdered by his own son. I was also very moved by the scene where the uncle was killed, and the uncle who was also part of the family. The only thing I didn't like about this movie was the language. I am not a native Korean speaker, but I understood most of the dialogues. But the language was too heavy for me, and it sometimes made me feel like I was watching a foreign language film. I think it is an important part of a movie to have the language and not have subtitles, and I also thought the music was also very good. I give this movie a 10 out of 10.

This movie was a very nice surprise. It surprised me. I don't usually like Korean films because they are so cliche, but this film was different. I am not a fan of the local culture of the Korean people, but this film made me understand that I shouldn't be judging a film based on that. The plot of this film was very interesting and its an interesting film. I can't say that this film is perfect, but it is good and it is very good. It is a must see for anyone who is interested in watching a Korean film. I rate this film 8 out of 10.

I don't remember the title of this movie but the general gist of it is told in the credits as a 4 letter word. I had never heard of it before and I saw it on Netflix so I figured why not. After a couple of minutes I decided I'd better give it a shot. My initial thoughts were that it was a big bore but the story really holds your interest and the actors did an excellent job of capturing their characters. The director had done a great job of keeping the story moving and moving at a steady pace. It is no wonder the movie was a sleeper hit. My main problem with the movie was the dialogue. The characters just seemed to talk so fast and often you didn't know what they were saying. I don't mind fast talking movies but there were times where the dialogue was too much and some of the words didn't really make any sense. Overall I found the movie very intriguing and had a lot to like about it. I do recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a good story with a good story to tell. You can read the synopsis and get the general gist of it but it is a long movie and a lot of it has to be shown for you to get a feel for it.

It is an excellent movie. I loved it. The only thing I would change is the English subtitles. It would be easier for me to follow if the subtitles were done in Korean. I love how the narrator speaks Korean and then the subtitles were in English. It was a little bit hard to understand but it was understandable. The movie has a great mix of history and modern. It has a very unique mix of drama, action, and action. This movie is not meant to be a traditional history lesson. It is meant to be a story that you can share with your friends. I loved the music, the plot, and the characters. I would love to see this movie again and I recommend everyone to watch this movie.

After the "The Hiding in Plain Sight" I heard that this film was produced by the Asian Institute of Human Rights. I went to see the film. I was amazed at the way this film was produced. The movie was very moving. The story was very clear. The directing was excellent. The acting was outstanding. I am very satisfied by the film and I recommend it to anyone who has a passion for justice and human rights.

This is one of the best movies ever. This is the real history of Korea. The movies and the plot are amazing. It is a masterpiece. The movie was also made in 1999, which means that the film is based on true facts. The movie is great. Myung-dang is one of the greatest movies of all time. The actors are really good. I don't know if it was the filming, but the movie is so realistic that it doesn't matter if it was made in 1999 or 1997. There is not a single actor in the movie that I can think of that wasn't a Korean. The movie has been nominated for several Oscars, but it doesn't matter if it was made in 1999 or 1997. I give this movie 10/10. I give this movie 10/10.

I didn't know what to expect when I bought this film, but I did notice that it was going to be a relatively dark and brooding picture. It has definitely been that way throughout, and I can't say I was disappointed. This is a film that can be divided into three distinct genres. First, there are the physical and symbolic elements of the film, which are quite vivid. The film, like many Korean films, deals with themes such as faith and destiny, the path of life, and the significance of individual differences. The symbolism is quite strong and helps the viewer to draw their own conclusions about the film. The second element is the acting, which is very good in this film. By far, this is the most important element of the film. The acting, especially the main lead, Jang, is flawless. His portrayal of Jang is very complex and we as the audience learn more about his character as the film goes on. The third element is the direction, which is very consistent throughout. The film is very slow, and this is great. Slow is a very important element to most Korean films, and this film also has a slow pace. The direction is very consistent, and we learn more about the character as the film goes on. Although the film is very slow and quiet, there are many moments that I would say are dramatic or action packed. There are no dull moments in this film. There is also very little humor in this film, but that is probably because this is a very serious film. There are many memorable scenes, but there are also many memorable scenes that are not memorable. I think that what makes this film great is that it is very consistent, but it is not predictable. There are many important points that I could go on about, but I won't. In conclusion, I think this is a very strong film, and I really recommend it to everyone who has ever thought about religion or destiny. I think that if you have watched the film, you will have a great time.

There are certain films that will stay with you for the rest of your life. This film is one of those films. I was in my room the other night reading the credits and I just felt so good, this was the best film I have ever seen, the story was beautiful, the acting was outstanding, the camera work was beautiful, the whole thing was brilliant. To me, this is a film of the 20th century. This is the best film I have ever seen. I can't remember a film that will be able to be as good as this one. A film that will stay with you forever.

I've seen a lot of movies this year. There are so many different genres. Some of them are extremely touching, some are very simple, and some are very powerful. This movie is one of the most powerful and most emotional movies I've seen in the past year. It's one of the most beautiful movies I've seen in a long time. I just love this movie. This is the first Korean movie that I've ever seen that is not a romantic comedy. It's a tragic story about how a simple girl and a boy were meant to be together. It's very sad and it's a very powerful movie. The acting is incredible. I really think that the characters are the most important thing in a movie. They're the ones that make the movie. The acting is great. Especially the kids are amazing. Their acting is so well done. The characters are amazing. I just love how they were meant to be together. It's very sad, and it's a very powerful movie. I really can't think of a better way to say it. This is a very, very powerful movie. I really recommend it to everyone. 10/10

I have just returned from seeing this film, with mixed feelings. It is a pity that all the people who saw it won't be able to appreciate it properly, for the great lengths they went to to see it. My reaction was that it was a good movie, in the tradition of the earlier films of Chung-hee and Myung-bak, with the Chinese angle coming up much later in the plot. Of course, the Chinese angle was not as in depth and striking as in other films. But the movie was still a good movie, and worthy of appreciation. The acting was good, the story was gripping, and the cinematography was interesting. I have been looking forward to seeing this film since it was announced and it was announced at the Cannes film festival. It was a disappointment that the film was not shown at the festival. Perhaps it would have been a better film if it had been shown. The sad part is that the people who had come to see it did not appreciate it. All the money and effort went to showing the Chinese angle of the movie, but they did not appreciate it. They were disappointed that it was not more than a very good film, and that they missed the depth of the movie.

The following paragraph contains spoilers. This is a real show for anyone who appreciates a film that allows the viewer to get as close to the Vietnamese people as possible, with as little propaganda as possible. The film centers on the trials and tribulations of the people of Ho Chi Minh City, in the aftermath of the Tet Offensive, the last big fight in the Vietnam War. The city is divided in two, a northern area (which we see mostly in the shots of Ho Chi Minh and his staff) and a southern area, where the people have no connection to either side. A kid, played by Ja Myo Sung, is taken in by a government official, played by James Tien, who is hunting for the last school of Vietnamese that will be opened, because the school is deemed "unsuitable" to be a home for American soldiers. A hit-and-run incident sets the little boy's father against the government, and the events that lead up to this ultimately lead to the destruction of the city. The director, Philip Noyce, keeps the film mostly real, with very little special effects, and most of the shots, that depict a variety of conditions in the city, are shot in widescreen, and look very real, not the usual exaggerated closeups used for American war films. This is one of those films that seems to be almost cinematic in its simplicity, and the small technical tweaks that the filmmakers made to make this film realistic and true to life, are done with a perfect sense of realism, and the result is a film that, unlike many other films made of the Vietnam War, shows a complete depiction of life on the Vietnamese side of the divide, from the basic necessities of life, to the problems and frustrations of the people, to the conflicts and tactics of the troops that take part in the fighting, and, finally, the emotions that are shown to the American people, as well as the Vietnamese people, that are portrayed. The film has a very real feel to it, and has a realistic tone to it, even though the final battle is shown to be an American triumph, the film shows us that the people of Ho Chi Minh City, were, indeed, at war, with one another. This film shows us what war is really about, and, although the Americans had almost no connection to the war, yet it seems to show us that they had to be aware of what they were getting into, and that they knew it, even if they couldn't seem to understand what it was all about. The film is extremely well made, with a great soundtrack, some beautiful shots, and a very interesting and realistic setting for the film. I would recommend this film to anyone, that is looking for a film that will allow them to see the true Vietnam War experience, that is a true account of the whole experience.
