This was satire right?
My mom was on her phone the entire time that we were watching this, which is a pretty long time, yet she was able to keep up with every detail of the movie. And she doesn’t speak a word of Korean. This movie was building up to something big, but the ending was less than satisfactory. It felt pointless and drawn out. Unfortunately, I don’t get why it has such high ratings, maybe I’m missing something. It felt like a waste of time honestly. Read the short story instead, it’ll save you 2 hours of your life.
The first half of the movie wrecked me and sucked me in completely, but the second half had me lost and slightly disappointed. There was so much potential to dive deeper into the humanitarian crisis that is the Rohingya refugees, yet the movie felt sidetracked. Despite that, I am looking forward to watching more of Yeo's films on Mubi.
