Critic Reviews for Christmas in August (Hachigatsu no kurisumasu)

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • Unfortunately, the film's cloying score trickles through scenes like sap . . . works best when circling quietly around its characters and attuned to the dying strains of faded romance.

Audience Reviews for Christmas in August (Hachigatsu no kurisumasu)

  • Jul 17, 2009
    This film was amazingly heart shaking, and showed very sad but warm view toward life in Korea. I thought we as foreigners would not understand this delicate feeling and under rate this quiet film as a boring one, But I was wrong. This was without a doubt, one of the most accomplished films for any director. The film was only 90 minutes long, but managed to say just everything about life and death. Not much action, and dialogue was minimal, but the movie flowed perfectly and demands your attention due to the wonderfully natural feel of everything going on. The performances by the leads were perfect, and even some supporting characters get strong emotional scenes. This film made you realize that life is fragile and short. and a view for better understanding how precious life is.
