Review

Kyung-sook who works at a massage parlor, is diagnosed with thyroid cancer. One day, she receives a phone call and finds out her daughter is getting married. Her daughter has resented her for abandoning her with a gambling father. She is flattered by the bridesmaid request and spends all her hospital bills on marriage expenses. Director Jeon Kyuhwan returns with his true style after the "Town" series and many different films. The strong will of the person who endures, presents the slice of mature life through enthusiastic performance by actor Ahn Min-yeong. The film makes us wonder the life of human locked up in the years of suffering and the physical pain. [LEE Sang-yong]

DIRECTOR
JEON Kyuhwan
Director Jeon Kyuhwan received international interest as he presented the “town” trilogy, Mozart Town (2008), Animal Town (2009), Dance Town (2010), which embodies his unique style of gazing into suffering figures. Animal Town was screened in Jeonju. Later on, he expanded his theme from From Seoul to Varanasi (2011) to The End (2017), constantly creating works that express the anxiety and fear lurking amongst the everyday lives of married couples. At times, Jeon was compared to the American director Cassavetes because of his commercial style and the way his camera gazes into the faces. The moments in his films when the Western style and the Eastern sentiment merge materialize intense images based on violence. His recent film Wonderful Woman traces the figure’s daily life in a softened and relaxed manner, despite the underlying anger and resentment.
