Beatrice is a curious person. This film has sparked much passionate debate among my friends: some say you cannot blame the wife as what happened was totally natural and can be expected. Trouble ensues well, more trouble when her husband comes out of the coma and gradually comes to realize what has happened. . Sprinkle in just a hint of the supernatural, mix with some decent acting, keep the suspense up throughout, and you've got a movie worth the nearly two hours it will take to watch.
Now, it's up to you to help this romantic person to bring back the memories she misses. It wasn't always easy, but the profession she has chosen is the love of her life, that's why she doesn't feel sorry for being very much occupied. In her home town she will never forget Ernest, her biggest and secret love. Her family left the place twenty years ago, and hasn't returned back since then. When Yeoni-yi meets Jin-wu's twin brother, however, she can't help but fall for him - but good things don't last and and Jin-wu awakens from his coma. It is not until near the very end of the movie that one has enough information to see how everything fits together. She remembered few months ago that the objects and the letters she has written to her love from the town.
In the meantime, expect to feel disoriented at times. Korean with English subtitles As the description says, a woman's husband Jin-woo is in a coma, when his twin brother Jin-ho shows up, and she Yeon-yi eventually falls in love with him. She made her career successful because she put a lot of energy and work in all these years. They kept their love secretly and they met behind the eyes of all other people. She was wondering how does her birth house look like, and it was abandoned since they left the place.
Others wanted the husband to mete out a Singaporean-style epic beat-down to the brother for porking his wife while he was in a coma in the hospital. She works a lot, more than twelve hours per day, and her job has tough her to be patient, tolerant and disciplined, the most. Unfortunately, it didn't end up nicely, but, some loves aren't meant to be and maybe for the better. There have been a lot of years since she hasn't visited her home town, and today she goes back there. Now, she gets emotional and wants to remember this great love through the letters she has sent to him.
There's a sub-plot involving Yeon-yi's mother and her own love interest that goes nowhere and seems only marginally related to the main storyline, and the occasional apparently irrelevant moments. Beatrice has always wondered if her heart would tremble if she sees this man again. However, they were very young when the butterflies flew in the stomach. A feeling that is likely intended, and in any case is used to good effect to induce in the viewer a mental state vaguely similar to what the character of Yeon-yi is feeling throughout. There are many wrinkles to the basic plot, however, and the movie takes its sweet time to explore them. It sounds like a nice love story, doesn't it? He was the most honest love Beatrice had, but when she decided to go on a University, they had to split. Beatrice lives in her new apartment in the center of the city, but she never forgets that she comes from a small town.
But none of this ruins what is otherwise a fine movie. You just want to cringe when the husband figures out that the fox is in the hen house! That is not very often, because she also works on Saturday. Wow - this is certainly not your normal tragic drama! I thought it was a great love triangle, but after having seen so many foreign films and being Cambodian American myself, I find it truly difficult to distinguish between the twins whereas in foreign horror films, I spend so much time focusing on the subtitles, it's hard to remember who is who because the girls all look alike considering the long black hair and similar facial features. As well as for the game they played as twins, I still don't know who she truly loved. While it's great that the husband recovered and could walk again, it seemed that all three lost in the end.
Beautiful, young, and newly wed - yet Yeon-yi finds her world shattered when her husband, Jin-wu, is left in a coma from a brutal accident. She enjoys coming to her home town everytime she can find spare time. Good to watch and discuss the strength of your relationship. . . . .
