    The Woman Who Ran

    ★★★★

    Cats and cat lovers, friendly visits and long chats, apples and cups of coffee, unexpected encounters and awkward silence, watching movies alone and eating inside the cinema - this film speaks to me on a spiritual level. God, I love that ending scene.

    P.S. I can never trust people who are annoyed or scared of cats.

    Iba talaga ang tama ng soju. Pakalandi!!! Haha.

    A flirty, funny, whimsical story of how it is to be so much drunk in soju, but more so in love, concealed loneliness, and fleeting what-ifs. I really enjoyed how Hee-jeong and Chun-su talk. It's like Hong Sang-soo telling us, just be in the moment. Thank God for that ending.

    Look, Marcel. The cherry tree blooms.

    Behind the noir-ish imagery and seemingly nonchalant tone lies a story of community, innate goodness, and unexpected miracles that feels warm and by the end will make one smile. Maybe life is good, afterall.

    Comrades: Almost a Love Story

    ★★★★

    The perfect Valentine's Day film. Romance melodrama that works really well. It has a lot something to say about diaspora and socio-economic dynamics of relationships as much as the serendipitious nature of love. If the ending scene at the TV store didn't put a smile on your face, do you even have a beating heart?

    I am not sure why but I have always been familiar with Teresa Tang's The Moon Represents My Heart. I used to sing, actually hum the tune many, many years ago.
