This is a little contrived and soapy, although Doona Bae has vivid presence.
The pic is ultimately held together by the mesmerizing presence of Bae Doo-na in the title role and an equally bracing performance by teen thesp Kim Sae-ron.
While Jung's efforts to avoid sensationalism and employ multiple threads are very admirable, the result is a mild-mannered piece short of a sufficiently substantial exposition of its plethora of characters and the problem they face.
The debut feature of 34-year-old July Jung deals frankly with issues of sexuality and gender in a refreshing way. The film's style is restrained, but the criticism of the culture of repression in Korea is extremely trenchant and powerful.
July Jung's subtly observed feature debut explores both the solidarity of two abandoned women in a sexist environment, and the darker edge of their special friendship.
A Girl at My Door is well-acted and crisply shot, a highly assured debut from Jung who should have a bright future as she grows beyond Lee's tutelage and develops her own voice.
A soulful, shattering drama that highlights the lengths desperate people will go to survive.
July Jung skilfully keeps you guessing in a film that might move slowly but is rich in sexual and psychological tension.
It's intriguingly set up, very well acted, and exerts a compassionate fascination, but offers a - perhaps intentional - disquieting, not quite satisfactory outcome that is less than the 'and they lived happily ever after' suggested.
A Girl at My Door is not revolutionary or radical cinema, but it gestures
towards new and bold representations of kinship and community that are sorely missing
Happily, The Girl at My Door gives the divine Ms Bae an opportunity to flex all of her acting muscles, albeit with small, delicate motions.
This thought-provoking film grips. With its two outstanding leads, it couldn't fail to.
