Cast & Credits
The story is about work pressure, and since I am from the EU (where the work pressure is quite low) I found this movie interesting. The story is slow paced, but shows from every person a back story and you can possibly relate to them. Sadly the execution was a bit messy, there were a few flaws and real movie mistakes. That said, I could feel the suspension throughout the movie.
The actors all did a very well job, I wish some had more time to develop their character.
I didn't found the music pleasing at all times, and I don't think I would rewatch this movie.
Watch this if you like suspense / mysterie movies.
Skip this if you want a clear answer at the end of a movie.
( Spoiler) I found when Mi Ryes image switched between herself and Sung Woo (the villain father) I couldn't really tell who killed the person. It seemed that they were both killing people within the office?? There were also parts in the story that didn't seem to add up for me. For example, when the officers found the body locked in the maintenance room in the parking garage? What was the cause and who did it?? ( maybe I missed something?? ) Overall if you miss one part in the story everything may not make sense.
On the bright side I loved the cast and acting, all the actors seemed to play their part adding to the overall "office" feel. Each actor/worker conveyed their own stress in different ways which is one part I enjoyed about the story, the short character development made me keep watching.
The music wasn't apparent to me and didn't leave a lasting impression, I honestly cant remember a time were music added to the film in any way across any of the scenes in the movie.
I'm not too sure if I would watch this movie again, or suggest it if that conversation ever comes up. Maybe after reading a few other reviews and seeing/reading others opinions and theory's/explanations I will revisit!
