Critic Reviews for My Beautiful Girl, Mari
Softly sensuous from afar, but rather flighty on closer acquaintance, My Beautiful Girl, Mari is an extremely oblique animated feature that may, in fact, be about very little at all.
While familial subplots, schoolyard showdowns and a climactic sea storm feel somewhat detached from the narrative, the deep sense of longing that underlies this sweet-natured tale rings true.
Lee Sung-gang's exquisite tale of childhood remembrance and imagination is... a patient fantasy painted in swaths of color...
Audience Reviews for My Beautiful Girl, Mari
This Korean animation is a beautifully artistic film, that also contains a lot of heart. It perfectly captures the joys of childhood, from a reflective view of an adult. This makes for a sweet, but never patronising, view of the innocence of friendships from years gone by. The animation remains simple, perhaps too much so for some, but it keeps it's focus on the story and that's what counts.
