| Subtle, ironic and full of ambiguity
Brilliant movie, definitely one of the best in a row of other Korean masterpieces of the last decade -- such as "The Front Line" (2011), "The Host" (2006), "Crossing" (2008), "The Foul King" (2000), "Santamaria" (2008)...

Hoon-Jung Park has created the whole 'New World' for his audience, where everybody can find his own senses and accents. I watched it four times, just to catch all these nuances, embedded into the fabric of the story. Finally, you are ready to cry at what you were beginning to laugh at, and vice versa. I give it 10 out of 10, because am not able to invent any improvements to this full-fledged performance. Current generation of Korean directors, scriptwriters and actors is definitely a product of a self-contained school, whose distinctive feature is, so to say, Uncertainty. There are no bad guys or good guys, you are free to rearrange your sympathies until the last film shot, and even further. Just like an ordinary life, which teaches us not to be rigid and inexorable, Korean film school shows us, very inventive, ironic and gently, all the variety of circumstances and reactions.
