a film about a wise leader. impressive for its graceful manner to present history. as a fairy tale, off course, but only at the first sigh. because, like many Koreean dramas, it is a lesson. about politic. and about poor people. about survive. and about family. and, sure, about love. it is not inspired to describe it. because it could be , for the large public, only another "ad usum delphini" page of Koreean history. and it is a good verdict. but not enough. because it is portrait of a form of solitude who reminds many similar pages from universal history. because it is a powerful story - the first and the last episodes are useful arguments. because it has the gift to present, in delicate manner, precise things from near every day reality in the right light. because it is the story of a hero. simple, convincing, seductive.
