Man Jeuk (The Sparrow) (Cultured Bird) Reviews
A gang of four pickpockets are seduced by one beautiful woman. Then they are systematically hunted and injured by mysterious men who keep tabs on her. As the plot unravels, the more is discovered.
For the most part, the movie is very uninteresting. At least that is, until the final climax scene on the street. The music, camera work and choreography is spectacular in every way.
Without the poetic end, it would have been a dud. I liked it, so I would recommend this to people who like classy and quirky dramas.
it's enjoyable enough just to see the amazing pickpocket tenique, the story is okay, but along with some stunishing shots in the film, I will give it three.
Not a plot driven film, just enjoy the style/pretentiousness.
Pretty images, pretty actors and pretty music, but is it sufficient? I don't think so. The story lacks of importance, although -as usual- the comradry between the pickpocket team is well rendered, nothing of the level of "The Mission" or "Exiled" is reached.
Stupid story. Now I know Johnny To also have lots of crap movies.
