"Hallucinations and nightmares torment up-and-coming young author Min Woo (Gang Dong Won). He cannot concentrate on his new work, the much-anticipated follow-up to his first successful novel, nor can he lead a normal life. Old photos and images he does not recognize - though they are somehow familiar - materialize from the darkness as if developed in a darkroom. Haunted by these spectres of memories he can't remember, he drags himself through days of confusion and alienation. Mimi (Lee Yeon Hee), a beautiful young woman, follows him around like one completely lost in love. As Mimi intones the notes of "Mist" (popular song from 1960's) for him, long-ago recollections sparkle in the darkness of his mind as if illuminated by flashbulbs. Flickering memories of his first love claim his concentration, calling for him to remember."
Cast & Credits
This movie shows that time spent with person who we loved is most precious and even because of time passing by and those memories will eventually fade away that person will haunt us in our dreams. How can we tell the difference between reality and the dream when the dream is a place with our beloved person. I think this movie tells us that...
M is a film which some people will love and some will hate. It's really complex to describe. I must admit that on the visual site this move is just great, all the twist in the plot and all strange conversation gave me goosebumps. I was so curious how this story would end. I was pleased with the ending, it was good, it explained all the crazy stuff that were going on in the movie. Actually it was a little sad and beautiful in the same time. Music was good, but not so memorable to recommend, although all the background sounds that were in the movie, were perfect fit for the story and it gave it soul.
If you like Kang Dong Won as I do, this movie is a must see, but if you don't it will bored you and annoy you. Re-watch value in this kind of movie I think none.
The film separates what is real and what is not. Min Woo's schizophrenia have been shown well, implied, with storytelling style which makes "M" a good story. Weakness was the climax of the movie. It's not very exciting. Otherwise a medium movie.
