Review

Inside the Makgeolli bar ‘The Return,’ there is a framed quote that says, “If you drink Makgeolli here, a dearest person will return to your life.” Located in the mountainside, quiet and still, many people believe in this shamanist power and visit this place. They all have someone dear kept inside their hearts. One day, Joo-young visits this bar but starts having doubts. Yet, she decides to actively promote this place. Because of her unpredictable behavior, Owner Byeon and his patrons experience a change in their daily lives. Heo Chul’s third work and his first feature film, The Return is a ‘good’ movie. It is like a fairy tale for adults. All the characters are good-hearted and the good intentions are spread with one another. It is a film you just can’t look the other way. Considered a Korean Shangri-La - a loud and lively mysterious utopia. [KIM Youngjin]
