For the critics, too simplistic, for the connoisseurs of history, very good.
The Brand New Life is set in 1974 so the environment is conducive and according to the customs of the time, ie a simple but coherent and well told story! The highlights are due to the favorable scenario for the film, it is recorded that it was recorded precisely in the winter to cause a greater commotion to the spectators, read more another positive point is the moral that the film passes subliminally, in the final minutes just before the plane takes off there A flashback and this flashback clearly alludes to the moral of the story that is: No matter how loving the adoptive parents may be, nothing beats the absolute love of their biological parents. Another detail, during the film there was no soundtrack, only in the final minutes is a background music.
Featured in the cast, Kim Sae-Ron has always been doing well since she was little.

    I also didn't like the very end, but the movie is very good. Kim Sae-ron is still very young but alredy a great actress.

    Pretty good. Gives a lot of insight into girls up for adoption. Other than that, it wasn't very remarkable.

    This movie was really good. I think it did a great job at portraying adoption through a child's perspective. There were many emotional parts. The ending may be happy or not depending on how you look at it, though.
