Cast & Credits
This review may contain spoilersThis movie is not for everyone. Not because everyone is different and we all have different tastes.
This movie is not for everyone because, let's be honest here, out of 8 billion people on this planet 80% are just dumb, another 19% are completely dumb, and only 1% is somewhat intelligent.
This movie is for that 1% so it will never be very popular with the average folks.
Story: The whole story can be summed up in one sentence - a guy falls in love with his cousin. However, in reality, it's much more than that. It's a beautiful, poetic, intricate, amazing story that is both captivating and tantalizing at the same time. The director's message is so subtle, it's hard to comprehend fully. When I finally understood it (it becomes more obvious at the end of the movie) I was in awe with the director's talent and vision.
Acting: OH MY GOD. Those Koreans can act. Do you want to know the difference between a good actor and a talented actor? A good actor can make facial expressions. A talented actor can create microexpressions. They are almost unnoticeable yet they make all the difference in the world. It could be just an eye twitch, yet those expressions make the story and create feelings.
Music: I cannot remember any which means it was good and tastefully done.
Rewatch value: I would definitely rewatch. Definitely.
Overall: if you give this movie a low score, the problem is not with this movie. The problem is with you. You just don't get it and, most likely, you never will.

"Kissing Cousin" is nothing more than a cheap, fifth-rate romance, it offers a dystopian world reduced to its most bucolic. There are no arcane rules or ideology here, but a tale of survival, a hot and heavy first love encounter with an arrogant and somewhat punk protagonist. The narration is good, the novel is absorbing different but still challenging.
It takes a world at war to challenge an adolescent self-absorption in duty with the country. A protagonist and their relationships hide not unusual. The embrace of your new and idyllic new life happens quickly. In the film, the finding that she is found in a sunny set of two inconsequential and very early adolescents, describing her experience as "drowning in fertility." Surrounded by wildlife. They feel as if the rest of the world is gone when she is physically with her cousin.
The script side makes forbidden love taboo.
The film keeps the viewer next to a story line becomes so harrowing and so brutal, with references to wars. It exudes a marked confidence. Sometimes she alone raises a tension after a reaction chained by two other actors. Occasionally, your budget movie while one of the young cast members delivers a less-than-compromised performance. And for all the national panic, the film is shifted into the multitude of small mistakes altogether, but the limited special effects are manifestly evocative of depression.
