Writer-director Kim Tae-Yong uses the melancholic, gray backdrop of Seattle as both character and metaphor, crafting a film that's visually beautiful and incredibly moving.

Not much happens in "Late Autumn," and the film feels a little overlong. But it has moments of real magic...

Audience Reviews for Late Autumn (Manchu)

This co-production between South Korea, Hong Kong, China and the United States is the fourth remake of the now-lost 1966 Lee Man-hee melodrama classic of the same title. This time we have trilingual romantic drama directed by Kim Tae-yong. It stars Chinese-born Hong Kong actress Tang Wei as a prisoner who is given a 72 hours parole to go for her mother's funeral in Seattle. While in the bus she meets a South Korean man on-the-run (Hyun Bin). He wants to buy a ticket in the bus but he is $30 short. Seeing her as an only Asian on the bus, he asks for a favour... and everything begins from there.

I liked the story which was told very slowly, I will say - the Asian way. And, according to the figures Asian audience loved it. The film was released in Korean theatres on February 17, 2011 and took 6.3 billion won (US$5.55 million) in the box office, and it became the highest grossing Korean film released in China to date, quickly gathering over 910,000 admissions after its March release, with a total box office take of more than 60 million yuan (US$9.5 million). The acting was outstanding and Tang Wei showed that she can handle any situation even without words, her expression telling it all! Multiple awards are just confirming this: 2012 KOFRA Film Awards (Korea Film Reporters Association): Best Actress (Tang Wei), 2011 Pusan Film Critics Awards: Best Film, 2011 Pusan Film Critics Awards: Best Actress (Tang Wei), 2011 Korean Association of Film Critics Awards: Best Actress (Tang Wei), 2011 Korean Association of Film Critics Awards: Best Music (Jo Seong-woo), 2011 Baeksang Arts Awards: Best Actress (Tang Wei), 2011 Fribourg International Film Festival: Ex-Change Award by Youth Jury, 2011 Fribourg International Film Festival: Special Mention of the Jury of the International Federation of Film Societies... just few of the many.

If you like slow paced romantic dramas with talented actors and amazing music, choose this one. You won't regret.
