Synopsis: Yeong-hwan lives a long lonely life receeded by a sick wife. Just when looking for their daughter who left home 10 years ago was getting tiring and he is about to say goodbye to the world, a queer granny turns up.
Musings: First of all, talk about real life getting you down! Last Sunday was my beloved father’s memorial day. He left this world just 4 years ago and for the first time, the magnitude of that passing hit me like a ton of bricks! I hardly watched any that day and was just so sad that I totally forgot about writing a movie review. So, I thought this movie would be appropriate for my review this week.
A father, who missed his daughter terribly after she left home almost 10 years ago. After his wife died, his life became a waiting game as he hoped for that daughter’s returned. Little did he know that she actually had but as she was suffering from Werner’s Syndrome (also known as Progeria), he didn’t even recognize her!
This was a great story that not only featured some really great established actors but it also managed to show us the effects of a horrible disease that not only affect infants but can also affect teenagers. I didn’t realize this. I had always thought that children were born and were immediately effected by this horrible and crippling disease which literally wastes them away with old age.
I admit, this story won’t be interesting to most but one thing for sure is the acting is solid from both Yun Ju Sang and Sung Byung Sook. I enjoyed it tremendously not only for its brevity but giving us an insight into forgiveness and family.
There is no trailer but the movie is available on YouTube.
I’m available on Twitter. Thanks to all of you Twinkles out here who are taking the time to read! If you have a suggestion for a future review, just leave me a comment! I’m always happy to have movie suggestions.
