    frustrating movie ultimately about closure that so badly wants you to feel the decades long connection between Nora and Hae Sung but doesn’t do much visually to establish that connection. it’s a connection that spans decades but camera is so dull, dreary and un lively throughout there is no sense of the connection established that survived a few decades. the dreariness in the present day scenes makes sense since there is no spark bring rekindled, Nora has no intention to…

    what’s not to love??? 10 stars.
