  1. vxpl's rating of the film The Power of Kangwon Province

    Beautifully shot. Shows not-so-different lives of different people, who are all somehow connected. Acting seemed a bit lacking at some times. A lot of troubles with background sounds.

  2. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Power of Kangwon Province

    Aquí inicia la estructuración en los melodramas del surcoreano. Es la historia de los amantes, se separan, se reencuentran. Ella se aleja, aspira a la madurez. Él la recuerda, está el estancamiento, algo que también tiene que ver con su ánimo conformista. Está también ese ambiente de hipocresía que rodea a la mujer. Los mismos contextos (marco del persevera el recuerdo). La narrativa que experimenta con los tiempos.

  3. robin's rating of the film The Power of Kangwon Province

    Visually stunning. First part is beyond brilliant, a short movie on it's own. The second part falls slightly short in comparison, but only slightly and because we're turning to the perspective of a new character. Can't wait to see more of Hong's work.

  5. Galen's rating of the film The Power of Kangwon Province

    "I have to be carefuI I don't get a speeding ticket" / "They ticket you here, too?" / "Yes, where don't they ticket you for speeding?" (cut)

  6. nrh's rating of the film The Power of Kangwon Province

    If the very young Hong still seems a little over-bearing in his character beats, social satire or visual motifs he more than makes up for it with an eccentric sense of rhythm and structural sense that clearly marks him as a master...with his switch to video Hong will become more fearless, and even more idiosyncratic, and this film is not as good as either TURNING GATE or DAY THE PIG, but is worthwhile nonetheless...

  7. Gran-Hoff's rating of the film The Power of Kangwon Province

    Does anyone know the aspect ratio of this one? The microphone boom appeared at least 15 times, which severely compromised the viewing experience...
