Review

The film begins with a close-up shot of a person´s hand. A palm is a map of the person´s fate. Though many doubt that, there are those who cannot avoid their fate. These people are destined to hear a divine spirit, s call. They serve their god by living as a medium. Shamanism that has lived through various changes in the 5000 year old history of this land is still viewed with negative perspectives that define it as superstitious. Indeed the way mudangs (shamans) act in their possessed state often looks like a behavior of madness. Yet they are forced to accept their destiny of living across the reality and the spiritual world and healing troubled souls and giving answers for peaceful life. While offers an anthropological view of the various facets of shamanism in Korea, portrays humane aspects of mediums. The film offers insights into the sufferings their fate inflicts on their life and their existence outside the periphery of the real world. Living with ghosts is a norm in their life whereas it is feared by normal people. offers excellent reenactments of traditional exorcist rituals and a great observation of mysterious communications with ghosts and of mudangs´ community.
