So last night…being the very cheap person that I am (I got my recent VISA bill…omg…I should starve for the next month…or two…) I watched Never Forever online. (I won’t say where.) I remember browsing a blog, and seeing a trailer (this is the korean trailer, but you still get he main idea of it.) for it. It caught my eye, so when I saw it, I got some snacks to munch on, and started the show.
Anyway I thought that the movie was somewhat interesting. I liked that the movie started with death, and the connection that was made with the end of the movie. Or the connection I felt that was made. Anyway, I thought that the performance by Vera was a heartfelt one. Not too shabby at all. I have seen the ‘Immigrant’ guy in some Korean posters for dramas, and actually was somewhat surprised by his acting as well.
Ok acting aside. The story was alright. I bit more sex than I like even at my age, but it was necessary (kind of) for the point to be made…I thought that the idea that Gina tried to get across to us, as the viewer, was a good idea. I liked the transformation of Vera’s character, in establishing herself instead of constantly trying to please other people, as the reason that was stated by her husband, as to why he fell in love with her.
Anyway my reviews on books, and movies, aren’t all that great. I know. But I really didn’t think it was a waste of time to watch this, and if you don’t mind the nudity, it’s alright. Of course not something I would watch with my mom. But I discussed the ideas that were presented with her, and we had an interesting talk.
The one beef I had with the movie. Was the ending.
I am going to put my beef in black, so if you want to read it, well highlight it…I guess. otherwise…if the trailer seemed somewhat intriguing to you, try checking it out. Obviously as it was her first project as a producer/director? there was room for great improvement, but…whatever.
I loved that the one phone call made, was to his place. Where Sofie was seeking sanctuary. He had faith that she would be there? Anyway… But the fact that the screen blacks out, and then we see her on the beach, with her kid running away, and she’s pregnant. Well…I wanted to see the guy again! I wanted a firm “Hey! I am now married to the right guy!” visual. I read up on an interview with Gina, that was found on The Unarchivable. Her point is clearly valid. It makes more sense to put the emphasis on that…but…it would have been nice to see him with her as well :P
