Writer-director Kang Hyeong-Cheoi has a keen grasp of what motivates teenagers, which is mostly a desire to be an individual while also being exactly like everyone else.
Poignant and filled moments of tenderness, humor and warmth.
This is a pretty damn good movie and actually pretty much unlike any Korean film I've seen so far. In that I haven't seen a movie that solely dedicated itself on teenagers and their experiences, I'd have thought that their TV dramas dealt more with that. Granted that is only part of the film, as it is also them, as adults, trying to get the group together one last time for their dying 'leader'. But it definitely handles its characters with a sweetness, warmth, and humor that most movies that try to do this same thing can't even come close to. Of course this means that the film can be overly sentimental at times, but it never degrades into melodrama. The cast is excellent, both teens AND adults, and they do a great job at sort of making you believe that they grew up into these women. I mean I still know it's obviously two different sets of actresses, but they still did an excellent job at making the transition from teen to adult feel seamless and not awkward. Of course it's also important for this group of women to feel like lifelong friends and they also do an excellent job at that. And again this applies both to the teens and to the adults. They had a friendship that I believed, for the characters themselves, would be one, and this is cliched as fuck, they would never forget. So yea I very much liked this movie, the only weakness is that it can be very sentimental at times but it's still a really good movie that treats its character with respect and heart.
