Audience Reviews for Sungnyangpali sonyeoui jaerim (Resurrection of the Little Match Girl)

A bizarre cinematic computer game. It's so much like a computer game that it becomes its biggest downfall. Characters come and go without much development and the action scenes are used mainly to give everybody something to do. The cinematography is also far too grimy and independent to really showcase the action and effects. There are some nice ideas here, though it never really explores relevant issues such as the youth of today living their lives through such games, or the battle between reality and fiction. Some scenes are wonderful as work as commercial sized moments of "Wow" "Ooh" and such. The length is also painful as the point and story seems to be something that could have sustained 80 minutes at the most. The double ending is quite a nice touch and some of the moments are darkly comic.
