melodramatic tale with poor acting and beautiful scenery
I didn't have possibility to see short version of the film, but seems to me that short version was correct format for this film. Prolongation of this film filled it with unnecessary and irrational plot twists. Along with that goes poor acting and sometimes ridiculous dialog. In spite of that film has quite beautiful scenery with some memorable images, but bad editing and not insufficient care about details, which are very important when movie takes slow pace (take for example Kim Ki-Duky), diminish film value. After seeing it I left with a feeling that I lost chance of seeing something special. Who knows, Mab director of this film, felt the same after finishing it? As it is said in the beginning of the film by main protagonist: "I just finished mediocre film". 100 percent true. in film we see young filmmaker who returns to place, where he last time met with his first love, who is already gone. In these days young lovers made promise - if they separate, they will meet again after 10 years the same day in the same place.
