Don’t let that poster fool you!

Based on real events that occurred in some villages during the Korean War, this movie touches aspects like political idealisms, morality, ethics and relationships without forgetting to add laugh-out-loud comedy and heart wrenching moments that keep reminding you this actually happened.

Regarding the cast, every character plays an important role in the movie, from the villagers with their simple ways of living to the North Korean read more troops who strongly believe in their mission to “liberate” the oppressed people.

At the end, the real message this movie leaves its viewers with is that life can take you anywhere, but you decide how to live it.

Both are telling the story of a remote South Korean village, caught in the middle of a South-North war... Both are worth watching, very sad and tear-breaking movies...

      Search for "In Love and the War aka Sleeping With The Enemy Full HD" and then you find some videos on youtube but unfortunately they aren't subbed. I downloaded the movie from yt and then I used soft subs (there are plenty).
