Audience Reviews for Woman Is the Future of Man

  • Sep 12, 2008
    [font=Century Gothic]"Woman is the Future of Man" starts with Hyeon-gon(Tae-woo Kim) arriving back in Korea from America where he was attending film school, first meeting up with an old pal, Mun-ho(Ji-tae Yu), who has since gotten married, had a kid, and in general done pretty well for himself. Before they go to visit Seon-hwa(Hyeon-a Seong), an ex-girlfriend of Hyeon-gon's, they get blind, stinking drunk at a restaurant and recall old times...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Woman is the Future of Man" is an intriguing but talky and derivative movie that has nothing really profound to say on the subject of relations between men and women which is expressed best in one particular scene. At the restaurant, both men proposition a waitress. Mun-ho asks her to pose nude for a painting. Hyeon-gon asks her to act in a movie he is putting together. This is supposedly indicative of both men's history of relationships. Mun-ho has casual affairs compared to Hyeon-gon's more sensitive approach.(Seon-hwa and him broke up because they used to argue all of the time.) But men are more complex than just two simple types. For example, most men would not proposition a waitress, no matter how drunk they were, if not out of politeness, than remembering that it is best never to mess with one who serves you food.[/font]
