Review

The film’s complicated time structure reminds us of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time. The pre-modern atmosphere with myths, ghosts and shamans are mixed with modern symptoms like tourism industry and the destruction of the ecosystem. The clash of shamanism and capitalistic values is led to a serious confrontation. The image of the ocean is overwhelmingly impressive. The director shot the ocean by zooming in the telephoto lens, which made the ocean look like standing up and the horizontal screen turn to vertical and engulfing everything. [KIM Youngjin]
