    Pansori like other folk cultures requires some getting used to. I had to watch this twice to make sure that the music style doesn't interfere with the overall movie. Overall, it works I must say.

    A faithful and faintly experimental screen adaptation of a classic Korean musical play, the problem lies with the source material itself. The music is turgid, ugly, and monotonous, and its moral message relies on the virtue of woman who must bear the disporportionate share of the burden.

It's morality tale as masochism, a fetishistic notion of woman suffering all the pain in the world to remain truthful to her man. The two leads are boring. Expand

  1. Im Kwon Taek's exquisite Chunhyang brings to the screen one of Korea's most cherished folk tales, a timeless romance in which the lovers are challenged by differences in class.
  2. This astoundingly beautiful Korean production is poignant, original, and engrossing.
  3. Im's movie approaches a seething, primitivist beauty that evokes Makhmalbaf and parallels the contrapuntal textual investigations of Resnais.
