  • dionysus67's rating of the film Deaf Sam-ryong

    Stunningly filmed, acted and scripted period drama about a doomed love affair. The odd couple of the beautiful bride and the lowly deafmute who is secretly in love unleahses the furious resentment of the Lord's son who is also the groom, and generates one of the greatest villains in all cinema history. Oneirically crafted -not only in the daydream sequence- this is superior drama and a pure cinematic masterpiece!
