Since watching a quartet of Korean films at the Glasgow Film Festival,I've been keeping a look out for other new titles from Korea appearing at festival line-ups. Looking at the list of final films up for viewing at the Borderlines Film Festival,I was happy to spot this movie,which led to me moving on to a viewing.
View on the film:
Moving in with the family, debut producer/writer/director Dan-bi Yoon & cinematographer Ji-hyeon Kim meticulously hold the bond which the multi-generational family build in the house with restrained, French New Wave style mid-shots,which frame the family together.
Holding back from big, emotive close- ups,and spending considerable time following each family member going from place to place and travailing with fluid dolly-shots, Yoon paints the household with pastel colours,which become increasingly vibrant as the family members warm to each other.
Following the disruption of the family caused by a divorce, the screenplay by Yoon wonderfully captures with a delicate quality from each family member picking up a broken piece, and slotting it into a image where the whole of the family, is stronger then the separate parts, with Yoon having a stronger sense of unity come out of the divorce,as the family moves on.
Two kids are moving to their grandfather's house, but everything is going to change when the aunt moves there too.
