"Maybe" is a love story/road movie about a man who suffers from a rare heart disease and a woman who's searching for her past using the scar on her shoulder.
May (Sung Yu Ri) is a Korean-American adoptee who returns to South Korea after 23 years. She carries a scar on her shoulder 13 cm long that looks like a lizard. More than anything she wants to find her identity. Eun Seol (Jang Hyuk) is a taxi cab driver suffering from a rare heart disease. He waits for his death at any moment.
Cast & Credits
If you like artsy, slow paced movies that are open ended, this may be a good fit for you. I also recommend this movie for any Jang Hyuk fan.
I watched the movie without any high expectations because the rating is fair to good. But still, I had hopes that it would have a something about it that I could really appreciate. Unfortunately, it still wasn't all that great
Story - It was okay. I mean, the movie was shot beautifully and in a slow way. I really like that kind of movie. But there were too many weird things about it that even I, who tend to like the odd in a movies, didn't really get. My main gripe is with the female lead. Not the actress, just the character. She grated on my nerves through the whole thing. I mean, I have never been in her kind of situation, but all she did was whine and cry and treat everybody like dirt. Her poor pathetic life. I couldn't see enough justification for this type of attitude at all. I just felt she had a horrid personality. I enjoyed the main male characters side of the story.
Acting/Cast - I thought the cast was good. The main guy from Windstruck is the main guy in this. He played his part really well. And really the main girl did her part well too. She was completely believable, hateful person and all.
Music - Some good stuff. Nothing memorable. Slow and sad, to go along with the movie I guess.
Rewatch Value - I will never watch this movie again, but if you like it, I don't see why you wouldn't.
Overall - It really is very rare that I find a movie that doesn't have much to it that I can appreciate. And I think I could forgive a lot of the annoyances and appreciate the movie more if it wasn't for the main female character. My annoyance with her overpowered a lot of the movie. And maybe I was just in a mood while watching it, but ugh.
