A Little Pond (Hangul: 작은 연못; RR: Jakeun yeonmot) is an extremely heavy retelling of real events that took place during Korean War when simple Southern Korean villagers were mass murdered by US troops near No Gun Ri in late July 1950. This short and very simple straightforward movie depicts the tranquil, sweet beginning, simple life events all mauled and brutally smashed by a roaring war machine. The banality of war is shown well and the sudden appearing of death is also here, clear and loud. If you are weak at heart, never watch this film, as it leaves an utterly severe and heavy pain. I need not retell the whole story, I only want to stress an incredible camera work and the sheer grandeur of Korean nature that serves well as a foil for terribly tragic event that crossed many lives out.
