    Superb change of pace from Mendes has he transports us into 1980s Britain capturing the era perfectly with future dreams and with its good hard look into its varying multiple themes of mental illness/racism that take us right down to incest and the like, this balance of hard hitters is equally matched by some great humour as well as some really well done touching moments, along with this comes its clear love and passion of cinema and how it can…

    This rates among one of best directorial Korean debut's ive seen in recent years,not only did Yoon Sung-Hyun direct he also wrote this superb dramatic look into the dynamics of school friends and the tragic events that will separate them,the way he handles these events and how they gradually unfold are brilliantly told and performed from the excellent young actors to the perfect use of flashbacks that bring this heartfelt story to it's fitting conclusion,Yoon Sung-Hyun is definitely a talent i will be keeping an eye on.
