BEST ROMANTIC COMEDY IN YEEEARSSSSS

loading replies

It's been some time since I've seen a movie that I had the feeling I should/could/would watch again and again and again but this... I definitely will.

A marvel on so many levels... the cinematography alone! And the soundtrack... and the acting. I adore this movie. It has not left my mind since I've seen it and it will be there for quite some time I think.

Breathtaking, Park Chan-wookesque cinematography akin to "Lady Vengeance" and "Cut." Despite its erotic theme, I personally could have lived without the amount of female nudity shots and sex scenes; however, it's still a beautifully directed film of romance with a compelling plot.

When I think about the experience I had with this movie a few words come to mind: refreshing, passionate, chaotic, exciting and last but not least sensual.
Whether it is the compelling story, the acting or the narrative structure, It hooks you up and fascinates you to the extent that time seems insufficient and you are left with the sensation of wanting more.

Truly a masterpiece and simply delightful.

I'm so glad I came across this movie, it's one of my all time favorites now! I watched it with my roommate, who isn't much of a fan of foreign movies due to the captions she would have to follow. This movie literally converted her to watch more foreign films. It's filled with dark secrets, even darker characters and keep you on the edge of your seat.

I don't normally comment on movies but I'll make an exception for this because it was astonishing. Chan-wook normally makes you sit up and take notice of his work and this was no exception. I think it's a masterpiece. I was open mouthed at both the beauty and the way the plot unravelled. An absolute must see. 9/10

An absolute must-see, but best seen without paying attention to any plot synopsis or spoilers for maximum effect. This is one of the best films I have seen in quite some time, and certainly one of the most surprising. Don't let the long running time or subtitles put you off. I'm saying nothing more in fear of giving something away - consider me spellbound!

Good plot-twist. The scenes are blunt and frontal tho, kinda like watching Game of Thrones lol. Love the wardrobe and settings.

This picture is a true marvel.

It defies romanticism, it defies comedy, it defies drama. This movie is entirely in it's own league and level.
It's sexy, and interesting, and captivating all at the same time.

It touches taboos, makes them feel completely normal. It drives the watcher to feel included.

This is a movie that everyone should watch.

A character in the movie says (slight paraphrase) "all beauty causes pain". That more or less sums up the film itself. The score and cinematography are near flawless and the acting is exceptional. The subject matter, however (and Chan-wook Park's characteristically graphic style) will have a lot of viewers cringing in some spots. If you don't mind some fairly explicit stuff in your movies, I highly recommend it.

Chan-wook Park kicking it out of the park again (sorry). Beatiful and dark, it's easily recommended!

YES. YES. YES. YES. YES.

This film was a neat little story about ambition and desire.  The central story line and conflict felt like something that might come from Shakespeare or the like.  The story was told in a rather interesting way - there are a series of plot twists that result in the story being told over again.  The odd thing about this (without saying too much) is that certain twists don't appear at the end of the movie.  If you pay attention (and look at how much time is left in the movie) you can pretty much guess how the movie is going to end. . Couple that with everything else that the film brought to the table and the result is a unique and full viewing experience.

Great movie. I wasn’t expiated this kind of story (didn’t read or watch anything on it before watching). A very good moment to spend here. Beautiful photo, great acting and great story.

Beautiful and raunchy, with plenty of plot twists, but doesn't make a perfect 10 because of its 2.5hr run time
