This film is of such a strength, and I'm convinced that it is a great influence on all Asian cinema. While the story is clearly "traditional", it is still very engaging and contains all the elements of a movie. There is the following elements: 1. Choices: 2. Moral dilemmas 3. Moments of conflict 4. The development of the story 5. The soundtrack 6. Characters

I am not an average watcher of movies. I am very open to the different styles and way of movies. And I just wanted to say that this movie is fantastic. It shows that martial arts can be beautiful and emotional. The music by Jeremy Davies is also great. It shows the life of the people in the country. It also shows that the very people are fighting and that they are not only fighting but love and their families and friends as well. The way the fight scenes is done is incredible. It is like some kind of documentary of what happens in real life. The story is brilliant, the acting is great and I could not imagine the ending. It is fantastic. 10/10.

I was mesmerized by this movie. Every shot was beautiful, every character was done right, and every song played perfectly. So, it's not a "special effect" movie, so if you are looking for "special effect" in your movies, this movie is not for you. Also, please do not view this movie if you have a brain tumor. Its not for you. If you love classical Chinese, the story is amazing and touching, and the music was wonderful. You have to go and see this movie, and you have to watch it at night when you are tired. It is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. It will make you smile and it will make you cry. It will be the best movie you've seen since "A Tale of Two Sisters". See it!

Movies are subjective. My family has so much respect for Star Wars. However, it seems this movie might have disappointed people. The script is great, the actors are wonderful. The music is perfect. I'm going to buy it on DVD.

You just have to see this movie. I really can't say anything else about it because it is an absolute must-see. It's a Korean movie and it was released in the west in 2007. It's the story of a man who suffers a mental breakdown. His friend, who takes care of him, accidentally dumps him in a lake. There he meets a bunch of girls. All of them are beautiful and pretty. A bunch of random hot girls, all apparently dating the same guy. This is a movie that makes you think and it makes you feel things. You'll be thinking about it for a long time after watching it. It's a must-see. I don't know who all these people are that say this movie is boring, but I know it's a movie that you need to see. You should give it a try.

This is one of the most beautiful movie i have ever seen. Yes, it's a drama, but it is not like those two drama movies. It is like a fairy tale. There is a lot of symbolism and a lot of beauty in this movie. This movie is about the conflict between Koreans and Japanese. The message that is left is "The relationship between Koreans and Japanese was never good. They were enemies and everything is going to hell". This is a very original movie and you have to pay attention to every scene. It is a great movie to watch.

This movie is a good example of what I believe the director and the writers were trying to do. So I believe that this movie was a true success. What was the aim of this movie? To create a sports movie that will give you a good idea on what being a professional athlete is all about? I think it did. Now that I think about it, this movie shows you a lot of things. It shows you the courage, the struggle, the commitment, the pain, and the dreams of every single one of the athletes in the movie. It shows you the frustration and the hunger, and it shows you the love. If you want to get a better idea of what being a professional athlete is all about, and you want to know what kind of movie it is, this is the movie for you. I give this movie a 10/10

I have seen this film at least four times, and each time I find something new to appreciate in the plot. What do you think? I don't know what to say about this film, except that I love it! And I hate those who claim that it is not an awesome Korean film. That is simply untrue. I was not expecting it to be an epic film, but that I was amazed by the manner in which it was done. If it weren't for the terrific acting and directing, I would not have felt at all sorry for the main character. This is a truly unique film, in a class of its own. A film to watch at least once.

A very special movie which I have seen many times. I especially love the story line because it is based on a true story, based on the novel of the same name by Kim Chong-Soo (author of "I Want To Know the Mysterious Truth" and "Secret Garden"). I think the director, director and all the actors did an outstanding job. I love the cinematography and the natural scenery. The music is perfect and different from the other movies. All the songs are awesome. I think that everyone should see this movie. In a matter of fact, this is the most recommended movie for everyone.

This is one of my favorite movies and I always get goosebumps when I watch it. It's a movie I can watch over and over again without losing my mind and it's so good I have it on DVD with my other favorite movies, Kim Ki-duk and 'The Story Of My Life'. I guess the only reason it isn't nominated is because it has some 'cult' value or something. I think the reason why it's not nominated is because people don't want to be a part of it's 'cult' and this movie is made by a Korean. Now you say to yourself 'what cult?' I think it's because Koreans tend to think that if a foreign movie is made in their country, then it must have a cult following and should have some sort of value. This movie is about a young Korean boy who goes to the USA to visit his dad, and meets all sorts of strange and strange people and falls in love with the American girl he has never met before. This movie is about love, friendship, loyalty, and always have your heart in the right place. To sum it up, this is one of the best movies ever and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Asian movies. It is my favorite and I always watch it over and over again.

One thing that is important in judging a film is to note its reception in the theaters. In most cases, it does not matter how good the movie is in terms of story or acting, it is how it makes its mark on the public that counts. The huge success of Gangs of Wasseypur comes to mind as a great example of how an overlooked gem can make a tremendous impact. First of all, I will address the general questions that are frequently asked by those who have never heard of this movie. It is rare for me to be in agreement with the public, but Gangs of Wasseypur has to be one of the few exceptions. Yes, it is a mawkish film, full of cliches and plots, but the audience is challenged to think more about the very real and close relationships that can take place in the life of a youth. There are many emotions being communicated by the director. It is impossible not to feel a connection to these characters. There is a relationship between these people and the audiences. The director of this film is Yasmin Navi who has recently come out with a wonderful film titled "Oz" which is a deeply moving film about the relationship between a Jewish girl and her teacher. She has also recently returned to the Asian cinema with a very great film called "The Brood", which deals with the most essential relationship of any adult in any society. These films will continue to be produced by the best film director in Asia and I hope they are respected and rewarded for their efforts. Also, if you like films with a political background, you will probably be more impressed by this one, as it is much more frank in its evaluation of government. We are often ignorant about how people behave in this country. There are so many new films that are made every year that are all about the same themes, but it is rare that these are very well-made. This film has a lot more going for it. It will be one of the films that I will watch over and over. I rate it ten out of ten.

This is a good film for its genre. The plot follows the story of a 12 year old boy who is suffering from a sudden transformation in his ability to speak Korean. I had never heard of the movie before and after watching it I have no idea where it came from. However, when I watched it I realized that it was a very good movie. The script is very entertaining and the acting is very good. I would recommend this movie to everyone. It is good to show what can happen when one does not believe in the people around them. The ending of this film was very realistic and made me so sad. It is a must see for all movie lovers.

The character of Kim is the most dynamic of all the male characters. His words, actions and personality all reflect his personality in every scene. The reason for his complexity is due to his "power of being himself". If I had to point out a flaw, it would be that his acting is a bit slow. But the character of Kim is worth every minute of it. It is his "strength" that makes him so believable and compelling. I'm glad the movie was based on real events, because I would have never been able to identify with the main character in this film.

Before I saw this movie I would not have known that the story is about the Korean War in World War II. It was not until I watched the movie that I realized that it was. The movie is really great, it is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is exciting and brings out the true essence of war. My favorite part is the fight in the bar and then the fight in the classroom. This movie is a masterpiece and is definitely one to see. The acting is great as well, and the special effects are also great. This movie is very emotional and is a must see. I give this movie 10 out of 10 stars.

I absolutely loved this movie, even though it has some parts I found annoying, but it has good parts and it had great acting. My only gripe is that it was too long, maybe a half hour more or less would have helped. Anyways, the story line is really great, it is based on the famous book by Thomas Hauser, and it's very fast paced and well acted. The best thing about this movie is the performances, especially by Kim Ki-Duk and Park Sung-Jin. I would have liked to have seen more of his acting, but it was definitely worth the price of admission. I recommend this movie highly, I have now watched it more than half of a dozen times. I think it is a great movie and definitely worth the price of admission.

I have read many reviews on this film, and most of them give a good review of it. Many of them, however, give a poor review, and then give a bad review of it. I have yet to see any of these reviews, but I am so angry that I cannot ignore this. I watched this film because it was on Netflix. I have to admit, I was shocked to see that the movie was on Netflix. The movie had no commercials. No nothing. It was one of the first things I bought on Netflix. But I am so angry that I am not able to watch it, and I have been unable to read the reviews. I am not saying that the movie is bad. It is good. The plot is great. The music is great. The acting is great. It is just that some people do not like this film. I am so mad that I am unable to watch it. I have read the reviews that praise the acting, the plot, the music, and the plot. Some of the reviews are from people that are very intelligent, and it makes me think that these people do not know what is going on. I cannot tell you how much I dislike this movie. If you can't watch this film, I recommend you go to your nearest theater and watch it. I cannot recommend it enough. This is a great movie. It is great because it is a great movie. I give it a 10/10.

I found the movie extremely fascinating and the story of a man in his early 30's who fell in love with his teacher and his life changed for the better. I also loved the music in the movie. It's full of everything you need for a good movie. A movie that you will want to see again and again.

Korean cinema is almost 100 years old. We are a very artistic country and we are getting better and better every year. When I first saw this movie, I really liked it. I loved how the movie portrayed the culture and the customs of the Korean people. The cinematography is great. The scenes are very beautiful. The movie is very interesting. The actors are very talented and perform well. The whole movie is very interesting. The actors, the scenery, the music, the acting, the production, the script, everything is very good. I really recommend you to watch this movie. It is very beautiful.

I first saw this film when I was 12, and it was my introduction to Korean cinema. Ever since then, it has been my favorite film. I always loved the portrayal of the "pathetic" Koreans in the film. While I do love the film, I cannot help but notice that it is very well-written and the story is told well, but it is a very difficult film to watch. The ending is very sad, and I do not understand why it was made. It is very sad to see such a beautiful film being ruined by the script. If you love Korea, then you must see this film. I give this film a 10 out of 10.

The story is an interesting one. It's the story of a young boy who is in a group of Korean people who's already in the middle of the World War II. He has to choose between his mother and his father. This is a story that is very sad. A very touching story that you will never forget. The cast is excellent. The film is well-made. It's very well-made. The film is not long, but it's good. I would recommend this film to people who love drama. The film is not like any other Korean film. The film is not just a drama. This is a film that has a lot of heart.

If you are looking for a movie that will change your life, look no further. It is about a young woman who becomes the best of her generation. I have read the book by the same name, and thought that it was an interesting story. I also thought that the movie could have been a little better. However, the movie is still good. I recommend that anyone who likes to watch a good movie should go see this movie.

I was invited to see the premiere of the movie "K-Pax" in the US. I didn't expect to be disappointed, but this movie was a real surprise. I don't usually like k-pax movies, but I really liked this one. It's a story about an ordinary guy, who is a big-time football player and is a good family man. One day, he has a sudden vision of his father (who is really his mother) playing in the games. He is suddenly taken away by his mother and the life is changed for the better. This is not a typical k-pax movie, because it's not about football, and it's not about a sports-star-man, it's about a normal family man. I really recommend this movie to everyone. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and to my family.

This is a real inspirational movie, and one that really should have been a hit. This movie is filled with wonderful music, terrific acting, and great direction. I can't wait for it to be available on DVD. I would also love to see a movie version of this with subtitles, since the music is so important to this film. I've never seen a movie that has so many great actors in it, and in my opinion, this is one of the best movies I've ever seen. I highly recommend it.

I thought the movie was amazing, the story line is amazing, the actors were great, and the music was amazing. It has the power of an 8 year old, and the story line is a story line that you will be hooked on. The characters were very interesting, and the relationship between the kids is extremely good, the romance is very good and the bond between the characters is very good. The ending is excellent. The movie is well worth seeing. I would recommend this movie to anyone, because it is a great movie. If you are looking for a great movie, this is it. I recommend this movie to anyone.

If you are looking for a movie with a profound message, a movie that takes the viewer to a world that is not so far away from our own, but also does not feel too far away from the world of our own, then I recommend this movie. It is about finding oneself, and discovering the things that are important to you. It is about learning to value and learn from others, and that there is more than just the self. It is about coming to terms with the difficult choices we must make, and the consequences of making them. It is about recognizing that we are not perfect, and that we cannot change the past. It is about the heart. I loved the movie, and thought it was very well done. I have watched it many times, and it never fails to remind me of how much I love this beautiful country.

A true piece of art. One of the best movies I've seen in a while. I've been a fan of Song Kang-ho for a while, and I think he is a great actor. I've seen the movie twice, and I enjoyed it the second time as much as the first. The plot is complex and the movie has a lot of elements to it, but I didn't feel any of it was unnecessary. I think the movie is an example of great acting, great direction, and great cinematography. The cinematography is really well done, and the movie has a lot of visual elements to it. This movie is one of the few movies that I can say I like even though I know I am not a fan of Korean cinema. I am giving it a 10/10.
