The political message of this film is clear - and I like it, but not so much the film itself. I think that the story is weak, the actors are not convincing (when you see how the South Korean actors are usually portraying North Koreans, you wonder did they do any research at all, never mind meeting the actual people! I am not Korean and I think I have more knowledge of what people in North Korea are like than the makers of this film! )and the ending is very predictable. It was a nice idea to make it, but as a film... I have seen political South Korean films that made me cry and laugh. This one just doesn't have the same effect.
