Audience Reviews for Haebaragi (Sunflower)
Unlike many tales about gangster's returning home, this has little to do with revenge and how things have changed. It focuses more on the redemption, forgiveness and atoning for ones sins. This makes it an inspirational tale that doesn't glamorise the gangster lifestyle. It shows the respect that can come with not fighting and earning a hard days pay. The violence is sparse but always brutal without being graphic. It is whom the violence happens to that makes it shocking. Like the best of Scorsese's works, a thousand gangsters can be killed without us batting an eyelid. But when the film takes the time and effort to humanise and empathise with characters, then even the slightest bit of violence towards them can be upsetting. The climax is wonderful and conveys bright hope for some and damnation for others. Sunflowers is a film with heart, brains, entertainment and artistic merits.
