this movie has strong depressing themes and a lot of brutality, rape, war, self-harm even human humiliation, so if you want to watch it, you need to know.
a movie about a girl who is 15 years old that gets taked by the japanese army in occupied korea in 1943.
along with many other girls who are her age and younger, they get raped, tortured and killed by the japanese troops, while most of her friends died, she survives and manages to escape, While in present day 2015, she is a halmoni now and she meets a young shaman 16 years old who suffered a similar fate of getting raped and later starts living with a shaman, the young girl helps the halmoni to go on a journey to send the lost souls of her old friends ( who got raped/killed in 1943) to a better place.
the movie did an excellent job in being both gloomy, dark and melancholic from minute 1 to the end of the 2 hours. I was in fear and agony all the movie. the writing, the cast and the entire production is damn marvelous. ill never rewatch this. but its a MUST watch even though its gruesome and just depressing.
Based on similar real case called the Nanking rape.
No shampoo will save you. you'll cry blood, I did.

The movie makes me felt extremely sad. The way the Japanese army treated the Korean girls was so cruel and merciless. I sincerely hope that there will be a person to lend a helping hand to the girls. Despite living in such worse situation, the girl did not give up on her life. She was strong in continuing her life by overcoming all the problems. I was so impressed with her determination. In conclusion, the movie Spirits' Homecoming was truly heartbreaking and meaningful.
