Even a melodrama can be made credible in the hands of a skilled director, as Leesong Hee-Il reminds us in No Regret.
As a love story, it could scarcely be more tempestuous and as an exposé of class differences and sexual hypocrisy it could hardly be more scathing -- or, more important, entertaining.
Part soap opera, part soft-core gay sex movie, No Regret is the debut feature by Leesong Hee-il, who is said to be South Korea's first openly gay filmmaker.
[Director] Leesong fails to extrapolate the insights of the brothel milieu into his larger agenda: a melodramatic love-hate affair between Sumin and Jaemin so schematic it's unintelligible.
Sexy, gritty and inspired, No Regret captures a love story so true and aching and unforgettable, it crosses gender lines completely.
Invites comparisons with "Brokeback Mountain", but this $100,000 Korean film is far better in every respect. Not to be missed.
