    menyajikan tumbuh-kembang kekerasan sedari benih hingga mendaur ke bentuk turunannya. abrasif, terlalu abrasif.

  5. wineboxer's rating of the film Breathless

    having grown up in a similar environment, a lot of it really hit me where i live.

  6. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Breathless

    Harsh and saddening to imagine this is the reality of many a country... certainly not exclusive to the underdeveloped ones.

  7. EdieEmm's rating of the film Breathless

    More impressive than the great cinematography and sound and across-the-board strong acting was the fact that somehow, over the course of the film, the parade of tired genre cliches stopped seeming like tired genre cliches at all. Really well done.

  8. Jack Duckworth's rating of the film Breathless

    touching, if basic, korean tragedy about the cyclical nature of violence. run's a little long, but did manage to make me tear up.

  10. msmichel's rating of the film Breathless

    Excellent film that follows the late humanization of a gangster whose traumatized past and upbringing had turned him into the monster he is. In a burgeoning relationship/friendship with an equally damaged high school girl and with a reconnection with family ties he realizes there may be something more to life after all...or is it too late? The cycle of violence and environment creating self are well examined here.

  11. Kelley Dong's rating of the film Breathless

    though there is the commonly seen "Korean gangster seeking redemption" plotline in this film, the plot enters cultural criticism with this idea of a cycle - a cycle of broken families breaking and upholding one another, and these families transcending through multiple generations, with a more specific cycle of reasserting masculinity over others to make up for the past.

  12. AyynaMkay's rating of the film Breathless

    at first it all started as a movie portraying violence and the void associated with it. but as the picture moved on it became obvious it's not only about swearing and showing domestic violence. it's more about hope that someday it all will be over. honestly, i felt sorry for the main character when he got beaten himself, though i was aware he's paying for his own sins. and despite the ending, i still can see hope.

  13. Yass's rating of the film Breathless

    I was expecting some excellent stuff from South Korea and that's what Breathless offers. Everything's focused on the characters, theirs relationships and the scenario all of these being amazing. The antihero thing seems to never get old.

  14. Sanriel's rating of the film Breathless

    I love how it subtly gave implications of the effects of violence on the young kid. Sort of a gentler White Ribbon ending.

  15. Linda Crisan's rating of the film Breathless

    I learned lots of Korean swear words. 이씨발! 씹새끼야! The film itself wasn't so bad either.

  16. Shawn's rating of the film Breathless

    It's about a boy that doesn't know how to cope with all the love he has for the world.

  17. sinemaci's rating of the film Breathless

    A really harsh movie full of fights and blasphemy, however still has humour and drama inside. Causes and effects of violance have been investigated in all parts of the movie.. Direction and act of Yang Ik-Joon is really impressive..

  18. Chris Knudsen's rating of the film Breathless

    My favorite film of 2009 and my #7 for best of the decade. Great great film.

  19. Simon So's rating of the film Breathless

  20. William Chan's rating of the film Breathless

    A true but very sad story about violence. It is well executed and I love the ending: putting the happy scenes before showing the heart-breaking truth is a good trick!

  21. Pedja's rating of the film Breathless

    Realism with a strong nails... Awesome story about angels and demons among ordinary people... A must see!!
