Review

The Heaven is Open to the Single! is a film that is like delicate fragrance of flower wafted through the spring breeze. Starring with well-known indie musicians active in Hongik University area such as Lee Neung-ryong of “Sister’s Barbershop,” Lee Sang-soon of “Roller coaster & Verandah Project,” a singer-song writer Lim Joo-yeon, Jeong Jung-yeop of “Jang Ki Ha and the Faces,” and Lingu of “Mongoose,” this sensuous movie embodies the love story of young people who love music and art into sweet melody of jazz and guitar and mellow lyrics. With an actual live performance included as a movie scene, listening to the music infused into the entire film is enough to feel happy. Famous actress Choi Yun-so got dumped by a comedian who is far from being special. People don’t understand why Yun-so begs for his love while not showing any interest in handsome actors who like her. But she has her own values and standards with which she judges people. A new person came into her sight: a talented indie musician Neung-ryong. In the public eye, Neung-ryong is also someone who will be unwelcomed by matchmaking services. However, he is a man of talent, tenacity and perseverance who does what he likes and lives happily without being swayed by what others say about him. Maybe that’s what captivated Yun-so. The title of the movie, which seems somehow influenced by the reality, is a cheer for love, which comes unexpectedly like a small miracle. The movie captures fluttering emotions between young men and women in an interesting way with hand-held shots shaking in a subtle way and close up shots capturing the characters’ facial expressions. Forgetting tough reality and feeling happy for a second - wouldn’t that be a present that films can give!
