At an age when perhaps friends mean more than moms, 10-year-old Sun is an outcast at school. During summer vacation, she meets Jia, who is new to town. As Sun shows Jia around the neighborhood and they play at each other’s houses and share secrets, they become best friends. However, when the new semester starts, Jia notices a strange vibe between Sun and the other kids. Jia tries to get into the cool kid's group and starts to distance herself from Sun. Inside the perhaps more complex and delicate world of children than adults, the two girls end up hurting and getting hurt by each other. (Source: KoBiz) Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
The human relationship is a fragile and complicated thing to deal with. "The World of Us" shows that children are no less clumsy than most of us in developing and maintaining relationship. Looking closely at a small bumpy relationship being dynamically shifted here and there around the broad spectrum of various conflicting emotions, this small but fabulous comedy drama immerses us in the small world of its young heroine through its seemingly simple and unadorned approach . The film touches us with its many modest but intimate scenes that are carefully presented with admirable sensitivity and subtlety. Highly recommend!
