Review

It’s the use of objet of so-myeon (Korean fine noodle) that is the most noticeable part in this film. It started from the daily experience that the outline of a bundle of so-myeons may constitute various shapes with the pitch (high and low) consisting of the noodles together. As soon as watching it, you cannot but give a big hand to the director who has had that hard and exhausting work with those numerous noodles for a long time. The main character is a fish living in a little pond, which has no experience elsewhere. A frog departs saying to it, “you have to go out of the water to be grown-up.” So, the fish strives to do that. However it gets swept to a river by a huge rain and there are no ones to answer its question but to decoy and harm it. Will the question be answered? Though, there’s a bigger question. Is the fish really fish? This film makes you doubt and reconsider the things you think natural.
