Movie Info

South Korean filmmaker Sung Baek-yeop directs with the feature-length animated film Oseam, based on a fairy tale by Jeong Chae-bong. Drawn with a painterly watercolor style, the simple story follows the life of two orphaned siblings. Mischievous Gil-son is an innocent five-year-old boy who just wants to see his mother again. He and his blind sister Ga-mi are taken in by the Buddhist monks on the snowy Mt. Seorak. Gil-son makes a magical transformation before finally succumbing to his fate. The soundtrack includes songs by Korean rock singer Yoon Do-Hyun. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Oseam

Oseam is such a serious, mature animated film that isn't for everyone. It is very emotional, at times even too much, and it is also very slow paced which might bore some people, but to me that slice-of-life approach was mostly great as it led to a lot of great character development and mature drama. And even though it is a bit emotionally manipulative at times, this moving film is still an overlooked gem that benefits from some superb storytelling and an exquisite and just wonderful animation.
