Review

Some films seem to wholly belong to actors. Actors do more than just conveying messages to audiences and make it possible to establish the world inside the film. ''Dong-a ''is one such example. Shim Dalgi who plays the title role holds up the film´s world. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to discuss the merits of directing and acting. When Dong-a goes to a motel with her boyfriend, she takes a long look at the out of season Christmas tree and steals another quick glance from inside the elevator. Kwon Yeji’s directing in this scene is impressive. Dong-a’s emotions are detected not just on her face. If what she sees, her face and the cold world around her do not match up properly, what powers of persuasion can her expressions have? The film shines with brilliance thanks to the trust the director and the cast place in each other. [AHN Sihwan]
