StreetsAhead55’s review published on Letterboxd:
It’s good, but it’s definitely the worst Lee Chang-dong in my opinion. It definitely doesn’t need to be as long as the others in my opinion, and the lighting kinda sucks sometimes. I kinda expected this to be his best for idk what reasons. Also this needs a restoration or something BADLY. Really go watch it, and it’s really upsetting which is part of what makes it so good, but yeah I wish I liked it more. Still great.
