Movie Info

Young-nam was a promising graduate of the police academy before she was transferred to the small seaside village, which was caused by her misconduct. On her first day to the village, she encounters with Dohee who is the girl living in the town, seeming to have somewhat gloomy looking face. As Young-nam tries to accommodate with her new surroundings, an accident of Dohee's grandma getting killed by falling in the seashore cliff happens. As to protect the girl from her stepfather's abuse, Young-nam let Dohee stay at her place but things turn out to be more mysterious as she gets to know her.


Critic Reviews for Dohee-ya (A Girl at My Door)

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (6)

  • [Here,] the city slicker is a taciturn lesbian police chief with a scandalous past, a passionate dislike of bullies and a penchant for lonely late-night drinking sessions. She's played, with mesmeric stillness, by rising star Doona Bae.

  • A detective story with a satisfying social justice twist.

  • 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.
