Audience Reviews for Arumdabda (Beautiful)

Disturbing, but interesting movie about how a woman's life is spoiled by her beauty. Just about every man she encounters become obsessed with her in really weird and twisted ways, and after she is attacked by the boyfriend of her best friend, (who does not believe that she has not encouraged the attention and turns on her), her life goes into a downward spiral as she tries to make herself unattractive so she can be left alone. Tragedy follows. Korea really does seem to come out with good stories and interesting takes on things. It is not a very moving story as you never get to know the main character all that well, apart from as a beautiful girl, and she doesn't seem to do much or have any back story at all,but perhaps that is the point, after all, nor do the men get to know her either. She is just a figure to project their fantasies onto, and therefore whatever they want her to be.

Despite only the story being by Kim Ki-duk this feels exactly like one of his works. The poetic license on real life in order to represent emotions and events. Beautiful shows us the danger of beauty and how it can be a curse. Eun-young is a great character, a woman that isn't vain or selfish, but is constantly tested in how far she can be pushed. It's a bizarre romance that sees men fall in love with her beauty. As madness seeps in only one man stands by Eun-young, though even he is blinded by her beauty and loses control over his actions. This is the first full length film of Juhn Jaihong and with the links to Kim it is hard to recognise a distinct voice. Still, it is very exciting to see where their career goes from here.
