Review

Keeping a balance among characters, the story moves ahead with life. A man is fired and his family members struggle in their own situations. The film tries to pull energy from characters’ responses on the issues of layoff, unemployment, and community. Like Shim’s Family(2007) directed by Jeong Yoonchul, Kim makes a bold approach which is rare in mainstream narrative films. Rather than contemplating people who are suppressed by the society, the director describes the strong nature of characters. In the story, people keep pushing ahead and don’t hesitantly budge. Such drive often goes against the rhythm of the film but it is great to see sheer optimism which is very rare in Korea’s independent cinema. (KIM Youngjin)
