Critic Reviews for Meotjin haru (My Dear Enemy)
It's an artful, slightly absurdist romance, reminiscent of the gender-war comedies of Hong Sang-soo (Woman on the Beach) but more straightforward, with its meanings, and its feelings, much closer to the surface.
It gets by on the subtle interplay of its contrasting leads, a welcome store of deadpan humor and, especially, Choi Sang-ho's gorgeous widescreen photography, which makes even a trip to an impound lot into a luminous, dusk-lit experience.
Audience Reviews for Meotjin haru (My Dear Enemy)
Not a romance,nor 'Korean', nor road, movie. Remarkable portrait of a "type" of guy: perceptive,kind,loving,engaged, everything a woman would love. BUT it is hopeless to love this "type." Jane Austen or George Eliot, would comprehend this movie better than the RT reviewers have, so far. I saw the movie at MOMA, and found it transfixing. I don't think anyone left during the movie, and most people stayed sitting all through the Korean credits at the end. It's an amazing character portrait.

SIFF 2009 - A slow-paced but never boring Korean dramedy that benefits from having a very charming leading man.
