About This DVD
A woman suddenly appears at Jae-su’s house. Nothing in her hands, nowhere to go, the woman’s empty eyes meet with round eyes of the eleven year-old boy. He regards the woman as another person who’ll leave and does not put any effort to get to know her. Every chance he finds, the boy scolds the woman, saying she eats too much, sleeps like a pig and uses up all utilities. The two of them are neck-to-neck with complaints until she learns of the boy’s sad history and he discovers her diabetes. The boy already had 10 stepmothers in the past. Out of the blue the boy’s father shows up and begins beating the boy. She tries to stop him and they find themselves in a common ground. A warm relationship between the two begins to build up slowly, not aware of the eventual separation that is just around the corner....
Actress Kim Hye-soo ("Tazza: The High Rollers" ("The War Of Flower"), 2006), Korea's ultimate sex symbol, trades in her femme fatale image to play a broken woman. Kim delivers the role most convincingly, with chipped nails and all. And while she demonstrates her ability to handle a role that's far from glamorous, she retains that unwavering sparkle in her eyes that shines through in all her parts. Kim's young partner, actor Kim Young-chan, is thoroughly impressive. The 13-year-old acts with a natural instinct and innocence that many child actors seem lack these days. Korean cinema has much to expect from the young actor. Ryoo Seung-yong ("Hwangjin-y - Movie - 2007", 2007) is also unforgettable as a man who, unable to express his affections, tragically falls prey to his own traps as a terrible father. And yet, the cream of the crop would undoubtedly be Hwang Jeong-min ("Happiness", 2007), who stars as the pathetic guy next door, who gives the artificial drama a realistic edge.
