Review

Hyun-su’s mother has become cold-hearted as she struggles to raise her child alone. She wants to be a good mom, but the only thing she can do is to yell at him, stress him out, and hide their lives with lies to keep him from being exposed to the outside world. However, a walk to school couldn’t be any more dangerous. Sunpyo, a boy who knows how to survive in the streets, rescues Hyun-su from a life-threatening situation and puts himself in danger instead. Sun-pyo learns how to hold his breath underwater until the bullies give up finding him, knowing he cannot fight back the bullies. A mother who is obsessed with protecting her son, thereby trying to isolate her son from the outside world, the son who is lost between satisfying his mom and feeling reverence for Sun-pyo who leads a very different life from him, and Sun-pyo who has learned to survive the harsh world too early-the three characters don’t know how to express their emotions and are afraid that they might be left alone. They hope to stretch out hands to one another, but such effort is not easily expressed or understood. Rough Education is the experience of a mother and two boys who are deprived of the verbal ways of interacting. It’s the mere survival of people who are in the blind spots of the stratified education system. The description of space and acting of the three characters are remarkable. (Bae Juyeon)
