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.

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.
