Do you like Quirky? Do you like Indie films? Do you really like Rain? Because if you do, you'll probably like this movie. This movie is so delightfully strange and weird. As I was watching I think I might have had a "Huh?" expression affixed to my face but now that it's over when I remember certain scenes I start laughing.

Set in a mental institution, this movie doesn't hold back on the crazy. The cast of characters is so delightfully nuts. Don't get me wrong, I don't take insanity lightly. There is always a sad undercurrent to insanity because the reality is the reason behind a person's mental breakdown. Those reasons usually being a horrible event or events from one's past or the unfortunate breakdown of the intricate workings of the mind or a chemical imbalance in the human brain. I have a close connection with someone with Schizophrenia and I can't imagine the struggle, the fight, the torture that goes on inside their own mind.

But this movie isn't really about the reality or the clinical aspect of mental illness. It's about the characters and their point of view of the world, how they cope and survive. Off kilter is an understatement. But at the same time it can be delightful. Especially the fantastical sequences that literally put you in the mind of the characters. You get to see what they think and feel; usually through their particular idiosyncracy. The one thing I took away from this movie was the Will to Survive.

Also I loved the way the two leads came together in their own crazy way. The way they sought out ways to accept each other. They weren't portrayed as stupid. They simply saw the world in a different way than you or I. I loved the way Il Soon protected Young Goon and made an effort to learn how she thought so he could keep her safe. He may have been crazy but so wise within that context. I loved that.

I am recommending this movie but really for those who have a great capacity for whimsy. Who may like a little weird with a side of fantasy and looking to watch something very different.

This is a beautiful movie, at first you won't know what's going on, or what is happening but as the story develops you find yourself with your mouth wide open. The only reason I watched it was because of Rain, and his acting was amazing, so sweet, so different, so human and inocent. Su-jeoung really hit me, her acting was incredible and real. Such a beautiful movie.
