Movie Info

Hur Jin-Ho's directorial debut came with this low-key Korean drama about a photographer, Jung-Won (Han Suk-Kyu), who runs a small studio in the almost rural environs of suburban Seoul. Days pass as he goes about his studio routines, enlarging class photos and taking family portraits. One day, Jung-Won meets young meter maid Da-Rim (Shim Eun-Ha) when she enters his establishment with a request for photos of parking violations. They make an unlikely twosome and are not immediately attracted to

Unfortunately, the film's cloying score trickles through scenes like sap . . . works best when circling quietly around its characters and attuned to the dying strains of faded romance.

Audience Reviews for Christmas in August (Palwolui Christmas)

This film was amazingly heart shaking, and showed very sad but warm view toward life in Korea. I thought we as foreigners would not understand this delicate feeling and under rate this quiet film as a boring one, But I was wrong.
This was without a doubt, one of the most accomplished films for any director. The film was only 90 minutes long, but managed to say just everything about life and death. Not much action, and dialogue was minimal, but the movie flowed perfectly and demands your attention due to the wonderfully natural feel of everything going on. The performances by the leads were perfect, and even some supporting characters get strong emotional scenes. This film made you realize that life is fragile and short. and a view for better understanding how precious life is.
