  • Review

    Born and raised in Jeju Island, a forty-year-old poet is still an immature man who is always scolded by his wife. Unlike financially unstable husband himself, the wife is a strong support system in their marriage. Hyun Taekgi meets a boy named Seyun who works at the cash register of a donut shop who he feels a sudden intense vibe. Living with a tough materialistic mother and an ill father Se-yun has been separated from the rest of the world and starts to open up with an unexpected interest from a stranger. Kim Yang-hee’s debut film The Poet and The Boy questions the value of ´beauty´. The poet opens his eyes on the real beauty when he meets someone that he feels he needs to take care of and also in secular reality of the world. A wife who looks after her husband, a mother who takes care of her child are defined as ´poets´ by ´taking care´ of others. [JANG Byungwon]
