Cast & Credits
"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.
