The family takes him in believing he is just an orphan with little social skills. She remembers a boy she knew half a century before. Also, this film introduced me to the awesomeness that is Park Bo-young. I understand her leaving the first time but don't get why she left the poor boy message asking him to keep waiting for her. His inability to speak throughout the film makes Chulsoo's first words in the forest all the more beautiful and poignant. Your point about the electricity is astute. And now that there are subs, I have seen it additional two times.
I wanted to but some parts where just jarring? As he builds the snowman, alone, it's sad, and he's waiting for her to return, but it also indicates he has some agency, he wants to build a snowman so he does, without her. I hate Korean movies when this happens. To go with what everyone said, the ending, and the few scenes before the ending, is what destroyed me. Then when I watched it again with subs it was the same all over again. To add, first time I heard what the movie was going to be about, I was scared that it was going to be reminiscent of Twilight.
I did check up on it, and apparently, wolves really do stick to one. Не са мои,аз само ги качих на сайта и ги синхронизирах. Then we get the final shot of him building a snowman all alone. At first, I braced myself for the possibility of his death, and then I was taken aback by the fact that he was stuck in time. While the family gets acclimated to their new surroundings, the older daughter makes a remarkable discovery. I mean, since he still has his wolf instincts and shit, he could probably recognize her by her scent right? That we can watch raw footage and still follow the story is a testament to that.
There were many cliches, but there was also something so simple and pure to it that really tugged at my heartstrings and made me fall in love with it. I tend to like movies that make me feel uplifted and smiling in the end, not confused or heartbroken. She lives with only her mother and younger sister since her father has passed away, and spends her days sullenly while she spends her nights writing down her loneliness and subsequent anger at the world which scorns her as an invalid in a diary. We don't know if she's coming back is the sad thing, will she return? While the family gets acclimated to their new surroundings, the older daughter makes a remarkable discovery. A wolf boy who has all the traits of a wild beast meets a girl who has shut herself away. Lee Byung Hun is flawless. You must have heard my prayers! There aren't actually that many stories in the world.
The girl, now a woman, has never been able to purge the images of his wild eyes and animal-like behavior from her mind. That little lady is so very charming. It's far too early on a Saturday to be sobbing like this, dammit! That, plus the quote that wolves only had one mate in their lifetime, turned me into a sobbing mess. The two start to open up a little but their relationship is wrought with difficulties. Either that or this is meant to make it clear that the lady is dreaming. But she has a life of her own.
I wondered if the ending was the product of her guilty conscience. I saw this movie a few months back and loved the ambience of the movie. Overall, the story was average. I am not sure about that since it was not written about if one passes away. Artificial Intelligence, which also centered on the idea of a tragic hero waiting for eternity.
It hurt, but it was a good kind of hurt. I was very very worried this one would end giving me the same tragic feeling, but I think Chul-su was able to find some sort of contentment in his solitude. I do agree that the villain was the main weakness of the film. However, kudos to the both of the leads - because acting wise, it was perfect. The movie became the biggest hit melodrama in Korean cinematic history.
If he could understand without words, why do you think he couldn't have learned to speak by himself, from books? Thank you, HeadsNo2 for the review. That was one powerful scene. Thanks for the review H2! So I honestly thought til the very very end that the chul soo the older meets might just be a figment of her imagination. And it's one of those movies that moved me too much, so I have it on my 'can't watch again' list. She could not live there alone with him; she has family, and that endangers him and the family. How did he learn how to talk without anyone there to teach him? This was a good retelling, all in all.
