Surprise bonus entertainment - if you don't mind subtitles
I was surprised I had not heard of this film until recently since I've developed a love of Korean film over the years & regularly search for new titles. I always wonder about films with an IMDB rating below 8 but I thought I'd give it a tryjust because I'm a fan of Kang-ho Song. Now that I've viewed this film I'm not sure why it hasn't been rated higher? I feel very comfortable giving this 8 stars. The acting was good as I'd expect and the story seemed pretty solid to me. If I get picky I could ding it for a few minor things that I might like to see done differently. I thought it might have been made clearer why the face reader seemed unable to understanding the characters of those that were closest to him. (Or maybe that was the whole point and some of the subtleties in Korean were getting lost in English subtitles)? Other than that I can only think of one scene that may have dragged a little more than I liked ( the tragic scene towards the end ). I guess you'll have to watch it to find out if you agree with me.
