Although it can be unfocused at times, The Way Home is a heartwarming and sometimes humorous film that keep the kids and adults entertained.

A charming tale though perhaps a little more of the grandson's change should have been shown.

Forgive us all who believe what this seven year-old really needs is a good thrashing. Instead he is sentenced to a summer with his grandmother who beats the tar out of him with selflessness and unconditional love. Give in to the sentimental side of your brain and you will be rewarded with a wonderfully paced minor miracle - and a mad cow chase !

Slow paced, but genius ingenuity. Naive in its own content and portrayal of events, but certainly this kind of films never lose the original sensation of predominant simplicity and peace. Throw a big moral lesson and you have Jibeuro.

What a tear jerk movie. Despite its lowbudgetness, you can really feel the emotions of the main characters and a grandmother's love.

Excellent film coréen, vu ce matin avec mes CM1... Jiburo ou la confrontation d'un jeune citadin capricieux et mal élevé avec toute l'humilité de sa grand-mère, muette et analphabète. Très émouvant...

A gentle film that keeps the blood boiling from the extremely selfish kid's actions, but he gradually wins you over. Warning: It will make you miss your Grandmas.

¿Cuantas pelas gringas abarcan el tema de convivencia entre dos personas diametralmente opuestas, con mediocres resultados? Esta no se parece a ninguna de ellas. Es gradual, es poetica, atrapante casi sin dialogo, es una pelicula que debes ver con tus hijos. Una de mis favoritas de todos los tiempos.

Wah, cerita yang cukup mengharukan, sampe bikin gw mewek. Kisah seorang anak kota yang harus tinggal dengan neneknya saat liburan di kampung halaman. Tadinya si cucu ini nyuekin dan gag nganggep neneknya. Tapi kebaikan hati, kesabaran, dan ketulusan sang nenek yang bisu dalam merawatnya selama tinggal dengannya, membuat si anak ini tersentuh dan mulai menyayangi neneknya. Sampe pas harus pulang ia menangis karena gag mau pisah dengan neneknya. Film ini didedikasikan untuk para nenek di dunia ;)). Oya, pemeran utamanya si Cuncu (Yu Seung Ho) pas masih kecil lho, uda ganteng aja dari kecilnya ni anak :D

Terharu sekali melihat film ini. Menyoroti hubungan sang nenek dan sang cucu yang baru pindah dari kota ke kampung karena ditipkan oleh ibunya. Perbedaan jaman,pengetahuan dan segala hal membuat mereka seolah tidak nyambung. Tapi lama-kelamaan hubungan mereka mampu mengetarkan siapa saja yang melihatnya.

Good depiction of modern vs traditional Korea.

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.
