Red Scarf is a film you have to take in context to appreciate it fully, a film about the Korean war only 9 years after it had ended, this is a very important piece of Korean film history I believe, and at the time it won many awards. This film shows the struggles of the people during the war and the brave pilots who fought in it. Choi Eunhee plays a woman who comes to town looking for work, she portrays her role very well and you begin to sympathise for her and her struggles throughout the film, further more I loved Shin Youngkyun as Major Na Gwanjung his character really grabbed my attention with his acting skills and his personality showing through the screen. Overall, I have given this film a 9 which is due to a combination of the historical value, the story and the actors, I think this film is worth a try if you're interested in discovering older Korean cinema and the history behind it.
