Cinematographically elegant and amazing!
"Glass Garden" is a fable in green images, but marked by déjà-vu sensation. Consisting of a metaphorical anecdote winged with familiar plots and  stretched to lengthen the length of one hundred and twenty minutes.
In  the story we have, biochemist Jae-yeon is working on how to apply  photosynthesis to human blood cells in a project she calls "green  blood." However,  when her research boss and lover lines up another co-worker and  together they steal her work, she retires to the field, where she tries  to continue her solitude research in a solitary greenhouse. Meanwhile, the false writer Ji-hoon, who lived next to the city, was  interested in her and ended up looking for her in the countryside,  following what he began to write a series of success ...
Its story reaches a melancholy end, I particularly adore it, but it  lacks the originality, but the journey is often absorbing, with a large  amount of lyrical images, intriguing visual barriers and vivid colors  that the beautiful CGI filmmaking provides.
The  forest in particular provides the Glass Garden with a number of  memorable and contrasting images, such as the neon green of lush  forestry, which opens the way to the undulating moon beams that wrap  around the trees at night. The  power of the forest is such that it seems to creep into the human  world, as when the growing brain nerves of the Ji-hoon patients during a  doctor's visit disappear into the threatening branches of the forest. A  work of art in green tones that harmonize with the beautiful star Moon  Geun-young, who as I remember her as one of Kim Jee-woon's (A Tale of  Two Sisters) sisters.
