[HanCinema"s Film Review] "The Gifted Hands"

By in posted Oct Comments off

Despite the kidnapping and murders not being the main draw of the film, it does pretty well with that part of its plot, as it has all the necessary elements to make it engaging. Most will worry over a child, the investigative process is made highly suspenseful with a couple of well placed chases and as portrayed though Choon-dong"s emotional reactions to it and the killer is very unsettling when he does appear. An overall good production and the good cast do not disappoint here.

In its main appeal, the movie really hits all the right notes. We have a slightly naive, but good-hearted cop who is shunned by his peers, a mysterious young man who in behavior is the polar opposite to the protagonist and a brotherly bond based on a common goal and past trauma. The characters are written with just enough baggage and emotion to not be overly corny, at least for the most part, and the chemistry elevates this

[HanCinema"s Film Review] "Dear Dolphin"

By in posted Oct Comments off

The broader message of "Dear Dolphin" is pretty clear- just let it go. This is particularly well-typified by the scenes at the aquarium, where Cha-kyeong comes to terms with her death by analyzing it both psychologically, and relative to the free-floating spirit of the water-dwelling mammals who aren"t tied to anything. The closing metaphor is particularly beautifully shot, aptly demonstrating that it was the flexibility and freedom of Cha-kyeong"s spirit that drew Hyeok-geun and Gi-ok close to her. It"s unsurprising that Cha-kyeong is more comfortable with the spectre of death than either of them.

Note that while Cha-kyeong appears to disapprove of Hyeok-geun"s behavior, in the real world and otherwise, by the end it"s clear that this isn"t because his actions are upsetting her. It"s because he"s doing so in a blatant, fearful way that refuses to acknowledge that life must go on, and that Hyeok-geun"s trying to use strong emotions as a drug to dull the pain instead of just living life and accepting the grief that comes with that
