Thanks to confident filmmaking and a pair of fascinating performances, the way to that destination is a really special walk in the woods.

"The Way Home" is a commercial film that offers no cultural exchange, yet the silent performance of Eul-boon Kim enforces a visual storytelling style and both of these elements are strong even though "The Way Home" ultimately disappoints.

Eul-Boon Kim's soulful portrayal of the illiterate, deaf-mute grandmother illuminates the dignity of her demeanor and the sad resignation in her eyes.

A sentimental hybrid that could benefit from the spice of specificity.

The film is meant to be simple and charming. Unfortunately, it's simple and boring.

Both heartbreaking and heartwarming...just a simple fable done in an artless sytle, but it's tremendously moving.

Writer/director Jeong-hyang Lee, in only her second feature, establishes a situation rife with gentle humor and honest, unaffected love.

[The kid's] selfishness is difficult to watch at times, but if you have patience on the level of Granny's, the payoff is big.

It's so good that you can practically see the Hollywood 'suits' trying to put together the cast and filmmaking team for the all-too -inevitable American remake.

So saccharine, I'm not sure I'd be able to take it under normal conditions.

As a tearjerker this works pretty well, though long before it gets to work on your tear ducts, it starts to eat away at your nerves.

[The kid's] just too bratty for sympathy, and as the film grows to its finale, his little changes ring hollow.

Not only is it a charming, funny and beautifully crafted import, it uses very little dialogue, making it relatively effortless to read and follow the action at the same time.

The pace is slow, the message none too subtle and the boy barely tolerable. But the film is still better than the mainstream run of movies from Hollywood.

Jeong-Hyang Lee's film is deceptively simple, deeply satisfying.
