Movie Info

When high school student So-eun (Kim Ha-neul) accidentally becomes the owner of a ham radio, she begins an airwaves correspondence with In (Yoo Ji-tae), who attends the same high school. The two decide to arrange a meeting under a clock tower, but when they miss each other they realize that they exist 21 years apart: So-eun lives in a politically tumultuous 1979, while In, situated in 2000, is a member of the relatively worry-free Internet generation. Ditto was released in South Korea within a few months of Il Mare, another film to explore the themes of national identity and love across time. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi


Critic Reviews for Ditto

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • Overall, "Ditto" is a well shot melodrama, with all the pros and cons the genre entails. However, it stands apart from the plethora of similar S. Korean productions due to its script.

    It's an interesting movie but it is really slow. I've seen the premise before in the American film The Lake House and I think it was pulled off a lot better in that movie than it was in this one. I didn't care for the music and some of the editing could have been a little better at giving the movie a better pace than what we got. The actors did a fine job but in the end I stopped caring about what happened to them when the story was finished. It just dragged too much.

    A beautiful movie...sad yet touching...almost poetic in nature..its about relationships, destiny and one's place in time..the movie moves at a deliberate pace, taking pains to weave its story delicately...until reaching that one defining moment..that one powerful scene in the hallway...this memorable film is for the romantic in us, even if the ending is bittersweet...
