dark and eerie movie with serenity and optimism tone


●HOW I CAME TO IT
It came in my recommendation list, I don’t know why it came although I don’t like horror movies but I ended up watching it.

●STORY
The movie is made up of 4short stories, with three stories connected to first one, where four strangers visit four humans who have their birthdays a day before the world ends. They have come to give them most unforgettable gift of life.
••First party- a filmmaker is camping at forest trying to finish writing a script for ten years. he hears an explosion and four strangers suddenly pass by, they have a small talk and filmmaker is insisted to narrate his script.
••Second party- a school girls who has inclination to unusual art, is hated at school. She meets a middle aged man who lives next door and goes for a drive with him and discovers that they both share the same desire that is destruction of the earth.
••Third party- a university professor who is mamas boy writes poem and is searching for true love. He is visited by a young woman with incurable disease and has a few days left before she dies. She says loves his poetry and wanted to meet him before she dies. they both spent time the day together.
••Fourth party- a housewife lives with a husband and child. She is tired sick and tired of her life due to lack of appreciation. When she goes out for grocery shopping, she meets a young woman who is her fan and has read the book written by her. Housewife goes with her to the greenhouse as she promises to give her a birthday present.

●PLOT VIEW
The movie is made up of 4short stories, with three stories connected to first one. Filmmaker is visited by four strangers and they promise a present if he narrates his new script, which is concurrently is about mysterious people visiting individual on their birthday. So the other three stories are framed as filmmakers script.
The movie is about a special gift for people who are neglected or outcast. All of them wanted someone to appreciate them, school girl wanted friends or parents to talk, professor wanted someone whom he can dedicate his poems, and the housewife wanted a friend who ca appreciate her hard-work. All the three human takes a trip them as I presumed it as “I HAVE A DATE WITH SPRING”
The scenarios seems light but when the movie ends it leaves chills down the spine. The film has a grim concept, which is ghastly approach telling that every human has same ending but still not same if he has found what he wanted from life.
The plot twists are breathtaking woe of artwork.

●ACTING/CAST
Just stupendous by each and every actor.
The first mention is Kim So-hee’s precocious high school student and Kim Sung-kyun’s erratic uncle, they pulled the movie to another level.
Lee Joo-Young is free spirit and Jang Young-Nam is as melancholy housewife having a party is yet another powerful performance.

●MUSIC
It was amazing and ensembled in each scene beautifully.

●REWATCH
Well TBH am a little afraid and scared. I appreciate the film but for a rewatch I would wait for my mind to fade it. You can have a rewatch if you like apocalyptic setting, with sci-fi, horror and fantasy mixed movie.

●APPRECIATION
The aesthetic in each frame is like an art. The rural and urban setting, forests and mountains, empty streets, silent library and many more has exquisite serenity Thanks to the cinematographer for this.

●FAV SCENE
When the schoolgirl and the uncle lie on the ground covered with fallen maple leaf.
The marijuana party at the green-house and the video-game framework.

●QUOTES
The world is doomed anyway, so let’s all go nicely. And if possible, let’s go beautifully

●AFTERTHOUGHT
Inspite of having a strange, death, violence setting, the movie has a playful and dramatic feel. i feel immense respect an gratitude to the writers /directors Seung-Bin Baek who have the courage to make such dark and eerie movie coating it into a dramatic concept with an optimistic tone.

Weird. Intriguing. Familiar cast.

Let me just start of with saying that the soundtrack
of this film is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately I can't find it anywhere, and scrolling to the end of the film to listen to it is starting to get dull.

I liked the ending and the first half hour best, the rest was confusing (boring, dare I say) and in the end it felt like there was still something missing. This does have to do with how much creative liberty was taken here.

The director did an excellent job at showcasing loneliness.

Edit: I had rated it two stars (4/10) but this film has lingered with me. Not all parts were good but I can't shake the feeling it gave me. All in all a very cool film.
