All Critics (26) | Top Critics (2)

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.

Top Critic

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.

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.

November 26, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

November 21, 2017 | Full Review…

A soulful, shattering drama that highlights the lengths desperate people will go to survive.

October 31, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

July Jung skilfully keeps you guessing in a film that might move slowly but is rich in sexual and psychological tension.
