I decided to watch this on a whim. I had seen the music video for the song a long time ago, and it peeked my interest. I am just so in awe right now, I am having a hard time formalizing the words.

The story was beautiful. This movie takes us on a journey, the journey of life. By the end of this movie, I was in tears. As, I explained it to my husband, yes they were sad tears, but at the same time they were meaningful tears. I was sitting here thinking, if that were me, could I still smile? Could I still love? I don't know, but it made me FEEL. The final message: Live.

The acting was great. From the pretentious star, to the thug drummer, to the little girl on the keyboard, you are drawn into all their stories and how they come together. Hong Ki showed a lot of potential as the main. Jun Min Suh is a little girl we are going to have to watch out for as she gets older.

The music was perfect, especially the main song.

I won't re-watch this. Once was enough crying for me.

If you haven't got any tissues for this movie I suggest you go and get some, if you've got some...I advise you to go get MORE tissues because trust me you will need them!

This is a sad but meaningful story, sharing a variety of characters and their stories, they way they lived their lives, their regrets but also their joys.

I've experienced both laughter and tears for this movie, and even though I tried to predict what would happen in the end it was so much more heartfelt that what i had imagined.

Watching all the characters grow and change in a successful progression in the short amount of time that we know them in the movie, it makes the ending just that little bit more saddening.

I'm glad this was Hong Ki's first major role in a film he did a really good job! and it's my first time seeing Baek Jin Hee too who impressed me :) I love the songs and the meaningful lyrics shown in this film and how well it was carried out with their voices!

Not sure about whether I would re-watch this again because of the tears but I'm glad I've watched it!

Sad, beautiful story.


I don't think that I ever cried that much for a movie. I'm not really used to cry for movies or drama in general, even if they are sad.


Story:
I really liked the story since it's a bit inusual. It's not the usual movie that makes you cry for the jerkness of one of the two leads or watheva. Both the leads have strong characters and don't get in your nerves with stupid actions.
The story it's more usual of a Japanese movie than a korean, making the disease the focal point of the story, but it gets rid of the slowliness of Japanese movie.
Even if it's a sad story, at the end, it leave you with a smile, when you rethink at the story. Since the characters are really enjoyable!
While watching the movie be ready with the tissues, you will need them!

Acting:
I really liked all the actors, they were really good. I like Baek Jin Hee, and I'm happy that finally she gets the main role (the same goes for Lee hong Ki).

Music:

What to say both baek jin and Hong Ki have beautifull voices! I really enjoyed the hospital band idea!

Rewatch:

I would indeed like to rewatch this movie!
(And I'm happy that is a Movie and not a drama, I think that a drama version would have been rather heavy going)

It's been so long already. Was this my first Korean movie? Well it was my first time watching Lee hong ki. This was when I first started entering the Korean world. I was super obsess over Lee hong ki for a while, but I found out he wasn't the one.

Anyways, back to the story. What a meaningful story. People should start volunteering around the community in order to understand others around us. We must start caring about others instead of just ourselves.

I don't remember anything about this movie except the last 20 minutes probably cuz that's where it all hits. When all the sick ones were given their video speech in front of audience, I cried like a baby. It was so real n crazy heartbreaking. Do you want a memorable experience? Well this is the experience u need!!

Believe me cuz it's our heaven!!

I love stories that pass life lessons, "Rockin 'on Heaven's Door" joins this list. It has as a plot, would not say a hospital but a retirement home for terminal patients, in Brazil is uncommon, but outside is something common, there are patients who choose not to do or give up conventional treatments, which in turn are invasive and Distressing, as Human Rights prohibits euthanasia are created these "hospitals" whose only function is to provide symptomatic treatment and give comfort to the patients and their families until the last moments.
The patient and his / her family members sign a detailed term and are "hospitalized" but may leave or engage in any activity as if they were at home, but should return at night and follow the guidelines.
Although it sounds negative, I think the idea is nice, since this method follows the natural course of life, without intervention, as in nature, nothing lasts forever, I do not see why trying to delay the inevitable. After all sooner or later the day will come to all of us, instead of trying the impossible it is better to accept death as a natural process of things.
Rockin 'on Heaven's Door was cool and cool, exciting and funny, worth watching, a ten is what I would give for the answer.
