The best recent argument for sterilization.

"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.

The story, touching though it is, does not quite have enough emotional resonance or variety of incident to sustain a feature, and even at 85 minutes it feels a bit long.

While certain cues, like the happy music, suggest that this movie is supposed to warm our hearts, Jeong-Hyang Lee's film is just as likely to blacken that organ with cold vengefulness.

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

Punitively affirmational parable.

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

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

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

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.
