I am not familiar enough with Korean movies to know if this is more the normal for their cinema or not, but certainly here in America this would be an Arthouse film. It is stark, quiet, and poignant.

This movie is not out to take you on an adventure or thrill you. It is not an overwrought romance. It is paradoxically simple in portraying day to day life and yet profoundly deep because of how it allows you in the life of the lead protagonists. This type movie is more like someone steps in to someone's life, pushes record for a while, then clicks stop and the movie is over.

Yet in this nearly two hours we see the gritty, grizzled details of two people and their real world problems. We see a love started and how life's problems can simply get in the way of letting that love turn into the fairy tale so many movies and dramas portray.

If more real and less contrived storytelling is your thing and you want to visit an experience more akin to your own normal complicated life, this story is definitely for you.

A nice story about two people with problems in their life and how, as the title states, find solace with each other. In Ku has a mentally challenged brother that he and his mother take care; Hyeran is in debt, inherited from her father after his death. They meet and it's interesting how their relationship starts. It's not a bad story. If you are looking for a super deep love story, this truly is not it but if you are interested in watching a decent story, I recommend it. This story is more about people and how they deal with their problem than a love story.
