    Beautiful story about the not-so-beautiful life of a master artist.

    Movies about painters are usually boring, (Andrei Rublev) but in this case Choi Min-sik is good enough to keep your attention. Its a biopic about a famous painter who grew up from a orphanage, who became so skilled that he painted for the king and people would view him as a celebrity. The movie is slow paced, but its worth it for the performance from Choi Min-sik.

    Abrupt ending but fascinating all the same. Are all painters mad? Certainly worth a visit if art doesn't bore you. The story moves at a speedy pace.....a little too fast in years flying by sometimes, but interesting enough to amuse me. Great scenes. The picture quality (if you're buying the dvd) is varied.....sharp in places, a little more fuzzy in others. Not bad for 2002 release but don't expect perfection.

    I can tell that a lot of care went into the making of this film, but I was confused at times because it jumps forward in the protagonist's life so frequently.

    Missed the first half hour of this tonight, forgot it was on. Rather interested since mr min-sik is in it, worth a look for that. I really enjoyed what I saw of it, also because I absolutley loved the paintings.

    Beautiful film shown with flashbacks which came be a tad confusing at times, but worth the effort. Yet another masterful performance by Choi Min Sik. 7/10
