Audience Reviews for The Quiet Family (Choyonghan kajok)
Very slapstick, but the comedy never works for me. The family never really keeps my interest, needed more interesting characters. It's most notable characteristic is being Song Kang-ho's screen debut.
The Quiet Family, of which many may know Miike's musical remake Happiness Of The Katakuris, focuses on the Kang family and their attempts to run a successful mountain lodge. Individually the family is a strange bunch, but together they are just that...family, bonding when it comes to covering up the untimely deaths of their residents, each family member excelling in their own disposal method. An understatement, in every sense of the word, that makes light of a family's attempts to keep everything together when everything in life seems to be falling apart.
Different from the crazy musical Happiness of the Katakuris remake, this one is actually funny. At first it makes you think it's a scary, bizzare movie until to the piont where it just becomes sick repetitive burying work. Dark comedy to the max. ^0^
