Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Examples Crime and Gangster Films are developed around the sinister actions of criminals or gangsters, particularly bankrobbers, underworld figures, or ruthless hoodlums who operate outside the law, stealing and violently murdering their way through life. In the s, a new type of crime thriller emerged, more dark and cynical - see the section on film-noir for further examples of crime films.
Korean 65, Imported Total attendance: They are listed in the order of their release. In their first crack at romantic comedy, Sol and Jeon take on parts which, although lacking Gangster style writing emotional extremes of their previous roles, form the very heart of this charming film.
He records videos for his future wife, telling her how curious he is to find out who she will turn out to be. Jeon, meanwhile, plays a teacher who works across the street from his bank. After a few accidental meetings, she works up the courage to ask him out, but is rudely rebuffed. This is the debut work of director Park Heung-shik, who worked as assistant director to Hur Jin-ho for Christmas in August Although at times this comes at the expense of plot, it imparts to the film a sense of honesty, as well as an unhurried pleasure.
By the latter half of the film we begin to feel quite intimate with the characters. Ultimately this movie feels like a comfortable old pair of jeans. The Letter, to me, exemplifies a melodrama gone wrong, horribly cheezy and forced.
They are a couple who very much wants a child but have had trouble conceiving. When they are finally successful, with the help of modern medical technology, their fantasies about the family life they feel should emerge are challenged by further obstacles that arise.
The film becomes a story on how this couple processes their adversity and how it strengthens rather than weakens their bond. Thankfully, A Day does not end up being to the letter of The Letter.
It comes close at moments, particularly due to the lesser performance of Lee Sung-jae who initially fails in making the playful moments that lovers share convincible. Most of the fights and intimate moments between the couple are believable and notable in what they convey about the growth of the characters and the moral dilemmas their predicament poses.
Kwon is masterful in his comic delivery in a small part as the manager of a store that sells baby items. As evidence of his skill, let me note that a smirk just emerged on my face while thinking about his brief appearance.
I look forward to a vehicle that allows Kwon to shine in a feature role developed from his gifted repetoire. Without moralizing a message upon the audience, A Day presents a moral quandry that, thankfully, leaves the decision up to the parties most directly effected. While watching the film, I found myself referencing one of my favorite novels by my favorite Japanese writer, both of which will go unmentioned because such would risk revealing main aspects of the plot.
Although very different works, particularly in their intended audience, A Day a popular drama and the book a major literary work, there is a similarity in the point of struggle.
Considering how important that book is to me, perhaps that is why I was so touched by this film while having no reference points of comparison in my life of involuntary singlehood. Although not every director of melodramas has the patience of Hur, the economy of Kaurismaki, or both like Ozu, Han, for the most part, directs a compelling story of love surviving the trials and tribulations that life brings to us, reminding us the fantasy is always far from the reality.
And the strong performance by Ko which won the Grand Bell Award for Best Actress and wonderful supporting roles by Kwon and Kim keep this film from entering the histrionics and kitsch that all melodramas risk. Adam Hartzell Tears Garibong-dong is a district in Seoul which has become known for its population of homeless teens.
Set within this locale, Tears details the lives of four young runaways who, despite their differences, join together in an uneasy partnership.
In the mid-nineties, he developed an interest in the lives of homeless teens and decided to live among them for five months, trying to understand them and earn their trust. Tears is based on this experience, and although certain dramatic elements of the plot are fictional, Im insists that most all of the situations and conversations are taken from real life.
Ultimately, however, the film is less concerned with exposing the excesses of street life than in coaxing us to side with the teens, or at least see life from their point of view.
Im tries hard to make his heroes seem human and to show us the insecurity behind their tough behavior. These moments hold enough gloom and beauty to let us picture these kids either in or out of their present lives.
Particularly worthy of praise are the group of debut actors who star in this film. Without their guts and talent, Tears would never work.Archive of freely downloadable fonts.
