The film stars Lee Eun-juMoon Sung-keunand Jung Bo-seok, who all excel in capturing the isolation felt by their characters. It was an inspired idea to reduce "the time gap" to only two years, between andand to deliberately limit the contact between the romantic leads to the archaic means of exchanging letters and other artifacts, allowing the characters and the viewers to enjoy the tantalizing prospect of a long-distance relationship without the messy emotional spillovers of phone conversations.
The narrative structure of Peppermint Candy shares much in common with an early Jane Campion film, Two Friends, in that we first witness a tragedy, and then progress backwards in time to learn the events which led up to it. The movie takes place in a rural fishing area, where a groundskeeper tends after a set of floating cottages, selling her body to the visiting fishermen.
The supporting cast of Kim Min-huei and Awata Urara provide excellent caricatures with the appropriate depth to not appear as if emerging from a vacuum. They view its excess as unnecessary and its appeal to tears insulting, in much the same way that horror films were derided in the past for appealing to base emotions.
Jang has long ridiculed the hypocrisy of Korean society, whose outwardly conservative sexual mores mask a thriving sex industry and widespread exploitation of minors. From early bits which make the audience squirm, the film gradually climaxes in some horrifying scenes of self-mutilation, which are nonetheless played for laughs by the director.
It seems that Eun-joo used to be a "jinxed" presence in the village she grew up under the name Gyung-a, ostracized for her alleged supernatural powers.
Cho Seung-woo as the earnest but somewhat inconsiderate Mong-ryong, and Lee Hyo-jeong playing Chunhyang, the embodiment of virtue, intelligence, and stubborn will. The film neither looks nor feels like an art film, and yet on closer viewing, the aesthetic it creates is both complex and extremely well-executed.
His skill at expressing both the humor and pathos of his character will ensure that it will not be his last. Its lush setting and explosive visuals provide a kind of treat that is rare in Korean film.
The producers of the film spared no expense in recreating the setting around Panmunjom. But what I can say is that this genre shift represents the tradition of "genrebending" in recent Korean cinema that Darcy has written about here at Koreanfilm. When the film began to roll, the mark left by the censor was clear: After seizing the dog and exacting a cruel revenge, he nonetheless fails to secure the peace and quiet he so desires.
Blockbusters operate under different rules: But when Ae-ryun confesses her feelings to Dong-suk when she knows he already has a girlfriend, the genre shift occurs which shines new light on the awkward development we just witnessed.
After her arrival, however, she finds that no one is willing to talk to her, and the soldiers involved all seem to be hiding some secret Bichunmoo is comparatively long at just over two hours, and so four short scenes were removed.
With his film Sopyonje he created a feature that, for some, represents the very essence of Korean tradition. Seong-hyun, an aspiring architect, moves into a beach-house designed by his estranged father, which he names Il Mare "the sea" in Italian. But is she truly dead?
These symbolic events mingle with the personal aspects of his life: Jang has established such a high standard in his works of the past decade that this rather simple tale of a sado-masochistic affair left some of his fans perplexed.
Even though she was only nineteen at the time of filming, Jeon looks more mature here than in any of her subsequent films despite some baby fat on her china-doll face.Using Creative Writing for Therapy. Our world so wounded.
