The Korean war does not start well for the US. They are being routed by the North Koreans and despite US reinforcements from Tokyo, the US army is making a hasty disorganized retreat to the southern-most city of Pusan. On the path to Pusan is the village of Jogunri, near the village of Nogunri. The US Army orders all the villagers out of Jogunri, warning them that the North Korean army iscoming. Some 500 villagers make their way, children on their backs, leading ox carts laden with belongings. But word is circulating among the US forces that Northern soldiers may be hiding among the civilian refugees. As the Jogunri villagers approach Nogunri, an American airplane suddenly swoops in and strafes and bombs the civilians, killing many. In the ensuing chaos, the US soldiers force the remaining 400 villagers into a cave under a bridge. The US soldiers then open fire. In the end, only 25 manage to survive the massacre.

Well, this film taught me a very important lesson. War is evil, and to never trust the enemy, especially when they give you false hope and false encouragement. Oh and that you can lose everything in the war, even a home and life in general. It was a really good film and made me really feel sad for Koreans who have lost their lives and mainly lost everything in the war, for this film is based on events of the Korean War. It made me feel bad for anyone who has to fight in a war, or those who had to leave their home and everything else in any war.

This film is sure to make you feel tons of emotions and you'll love the cast and of course the music. If you love historical films or any films that reminds you of the war, I recommend this film. Just be prepared, for it's sure to invoke a lot of emotions. 5/5.

In 1950, at the beginning of the Korean conflict, a village in the mountains was informed to evacuate because the fighting between North and South and the Americans would cross their village. Arriving the road, they fled south, only to end up massacred by American forces, they said to shoot anyone who tried to cross the battle lines.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about this film was the cast, The Cast, which donated its services, includes some of South Korea's top actors to portray this massacre.
It was very well written, Sang-woo Lee was able to retell the story of just one of the massacres that happened in Korea during the early days of the war. The film simply covers the time period just before being evacuated to the point where the survivors began to turn back. There are no guilty statements, there was even investigation of what happened after the fact, it's just the random events, and it was better that way. Once the story is kept simple, the film takes on more resonances and becomes much more universal, this could and probably would happen elsewhere.
It's a bit slow at first, there are many unequal CGI blood effects, but as emotional and as painful as experiencing such an episode in real life.
