Movie Info

Director Meul O. explores a dark chapter in Korean history in this period drama set during the 1948 Jeju Massacre. Terrified upon learning soldiers have been ordered to shoot them on sight, over 100 villagers seek sanctuary in a nearby cave. Over the next 60 days, the villagers struggle to stay hopeful despite dropping temperatures, and dwindling food supplies. Meanwhile, their growing fears drive them to desperate measures. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Visually, the film is breathtaking -- replete with meticulous, broodingly lit compositions of weatherbeaten landscapes that form an elemental backdrop to human portraits of iconic impact.

Its often compositional beauty and sensitivity fail to elevate it into a major work, and perhaps its general approach to character might leave it a minor one even in terms of audience reception.

In form, O Muel's film is invigorating, even striking, but it feels ill-matched to his attitude, if not necessarily his subject matter.
