On the one hand, the film aims to preserve a degree of secrecy surrounding the peculiar circumstances of its protagonist, which runs the risk of keeping the viewer at too great a distance.

It's excellent drama based upon angering reality, though neither one of those things upstages the other.

In any case, a great new talent has been found in Lee Su-jin and I can only imagine what he might have in store for us next.
