Movie Info

Anthology of shorts by six leading Korean directors made for the National Human Rights Commission. Park Chan-Wook (of Sympathy for Mr Vengeance) tackles racial prejudice and the economic exploitation of immigrant workers through the real-life story of a Nepalese woman in Korea. Jeong Jae-Eun (of Take Care of My Cat) tackles the plight of a paedophile released into the community. Yeo Gyun-Dong invites disabled actor Kim Moon-Joo to re-enact his most famous protest. And, in the two best episodes, Im Soon-Rye (of Waikiki Brothers) goes for the engrained sexism of Korean men with superb wit and Park Jin-Pyo (of Too Young to Die) confronts the horror of children forced into oral surgery to improve their English-speaking ability

Audience Reviews for Yeoseot gae ui siseon (If You Were Me)


Looking at Chan-wook Park's filmography this compilation stands out. Turns out it's for National Human Rights or whatever but I was only interested in how creative some of the visions of these participating directors are. The individual shorts are good as stand-alone films, the anthology gets colorless by the time the third or fourth short rolls in (I.e. the fun is sapped out of what you're watching when you realize this film is supposed to make you feel guilty). The shorts didn't communicate their issues effectively but as a whole you get subtle hints - and what's the point of crafting in the first place if the message is to be eluded by some? An interesting 'perspective' angle unites the shorts and I GUESS I feel a little bit better about my life because none of this moralism will do any good to misanthropes. Speaking of which, Park's short, which is the last, is a rather odd addition - humanistic and all - among his films. Flixster synopsis explains the themes well.
