Review

When the Korean War broke, Lee Jungseob and his family left Wonsan to Jeju Island. He lived off of rice donated by religious groups or crabs he caught. When his neighbors helped him, he painted them in return. When they came back to Busan, Lee’s wife and children went to Japan while he stayed alone. Lee Jungseob roamed around from Tongyeoung and Seoul to Daegu and Waegwan. He continued painting with the help of his friends, but his exhibition failed like his failing health. In the end, he died at Seoul Red Cross Hospital without family. The Painter’s View is a reenactment of Lee Jungseob’s life based on the documents. By juxtaposing remaining images with the drama played by actors and the voices by narrator explaining the situation outside the screen, the documentary has extra textures, bringing the audience closer to the life of Lee Jungseob.
