Review by Uwe Raum-Deinzer---
At the beginning it seems to be a harmless little love story about the growing relationship between a female video store owner and an unsuccessfull young pop musician, but suddenly it becomes a film about obsession because this love is only one-sided. Lee Mi-Yeon has an outstanding performance as a lonely woman dreaming of love who believes she now has find the man that fits her. But he don't love her and hurts her in many ways to stop her loving him.
She became kind of a female stalker who follows his life in obsessive ways. In a typical Hollywood movie she would be mutating into a murdering monster that must be destroyed, but this movie is very different. It's a wonderful experience about a sensitive young woman who is going mad about her great love. In a brilliant scene the girlfriend of the musician leaves him because she realizes that the love of Lee Me-Yeons charakter is much more deep than hers.
This is a beautiful "Sad Movie" (it's also the name of the video store) with a tragic ending that is "happy" in a strange way.
