Critic Reviews for The Way Home (Jibeuro)
Thanks to confident filmmaking and a pair of fascinating performances, the way to that destination is a really special walk in the woods.
Eul-Boon Kim's soulful portrayal of the illiterate, deaf-mute grandmother illuminates the dignity of her demeanor and the sad resignation in her eyes.
The film has good actors and enough quirky moments to keep it interesting.
The film is meant to be simple and charming. Unfortunately, it's simple and boring.
The pace is slow, the message none too subtle and the boy barely tolerable. But the film is still better than the mainstream run of movies from Hollywood.
Jeong-Hyang Lee's film is deceptively simple, deeply satisfying.
Audience Reviews for The Way Home (Jibeuro)
This is a really nice movie, but the little boy in this was so obnoxious, I was waiting for grandma too wack him with her walking stick...yet she never did. I kept waiting for that moment when the kid redeemed himself for all the nasty things that he did to her, but it wasn't until the very end where he ALMOST did. Still not sure that I forgive him, but all in all the movie was quite enjoyable to watch.
A heart warming story, but very drawn out. Because of the Grandmother being mute and most of the dialogue coming from the Grandson, this almost comes across the way a silent movie would in that you take more notice of the visual things.
A kind of cute, but serious film, but very drawn out.
A sweet and gentle film. The little kid is an absolute prick and you want to slap him, but of course it makes the journey of each character even better. It's a sweet and simple tale of family and is just a big smily watch.
