Audience Reviews for Ssang-hwa-jeom (A Frozen Flower)

Wow, I'm I the only one who has seen this one?
When I rented it via my TV and Internet provider, it said that it had sword fights, blood and erotic scenes. Can't go wrong there.

Although the movie in itself wasn't that bad, it failed to grab me on an emotional level. Those erotic scenes they were talking about where present, but they didn't have the erotic tension you would expect. Maybe that's because you never really get to know the characters although the movie is 2hrs and 13min long. And that's it's biggest flaw.

Great story about historical kingdom and triangle love between the king, the queen, & the king's bodyguard... Similar story to Curse Of The Golden Flower which The King & The Queen weren't fall in love in each other and of course an internal war.. But in A Frozen Flower, the plot wasn't boring and keep surprising us from scenes to scenes or we can say it get interesting from minute to minute... The cast did a pretty good job, especially for Ju Jin-mo & Jo In-seong, which I was shocked to see how brave and intimate they're here... And for the movies itself, I feel like I watching Lust, Caution directed from Ang Lee blended with Quentin Tarantino's movies, so wild and a lot of blood...
