      comedy comedy...look at it....tears come out

      Say it's comedy, absolutely! I haven't watched the pure-British comedy that I just downloaded. It seems that it is right to let this Korean film warm up!

      A meal of pork shows revolutionary friendship
      . When the born leader first came to the village, he was indeed full of fortitude and unyielding, and the brute force and bloody pavement came. With the emergence of rugby, grass skating and other events, taking off the hard military uniforms and putting on civilian clothes, the...

      A fairy tale at war

        The land is flat and spacious, the houses are just like, and there are fertile fields, beautiful ponds, mulberry and bamboo. Qian Mo traffic, chickens and dogs hear each other. Among them, the exchanges, the clothes, and the clothes of men and women are all like outsiders. Yellow hair down, and happy. . . . . . If I ask what age is this, I don't know whether there is Han, whether it is Wei or Jin.

         I think, for "Welcome to Dongmo Village", there is no more accurate film review...

      They don't know why they fight, but they know why they cooperate

      The entire film is set against the backdrop of the Korean War.

      North Korea and South Korea were originally a family, but they confronted each other because of their different camps. North Korean soldiers and South Korean soldiers used the same language and looked almost the same. On the battlefield, they had to draw guns to meet each other until they died.

      In the film, whether it is the two deserters in South Korea or the three soldiers who survived the battle in North...

      Sincere recommendation: Welcome to Dongmo Village

      I wanted to watch "The Promise" again. To tell the truth, I have seen this film twice: once I had a sneak peek, and then I went to the Sanlian forum to vent it; the other time I went to a friend's appointment, and I slept soundly for an hour. But I have great respect for Director Chen. "Farewell My Concubine" is an insurmountable monument in the history of Chinese films, so I must take time to watch it again to reach a final conclusion.
      However, I actually lost interest...

      return of humanity

          War is the greatest destruction of human nature. In the times of peace, I see no amount of praise for the times of war, but I can't understand what people were thinking at that time. In this film, human nature is returned in the secluded Dongmo Village. The first half of the movie is light-hearted and witty, and the idea of ​​the corns turning into popcorn in the air is really a stroke of genius. But in such an era of national madness, awakening means greater pain, and the...

      A war fairy tale full of special effects, the best thing to watch is two special effects, one is throwing grenades into the granary, the corn is turned into popcorn, the other is killing wild boars, and slow-motion special effects are produced. The plot is too nonsense, and the war is also contaminated with some deliberate humanistic care, eat...

      Another form of romanticism in war films, one has to rethink the meaning of war. Explain in an almost extreme way what it means to sacrifice for the people. The absurdity of ideology and conflict of interests, the relationship between war and ending war... rich in content. The title of 웰컴투동막골 itself is a mixture of English and Korean, is there any other meaning? Kang Hye Jung is my favorite Korean actress, bar...

      I first heard about this movie because of Joe Hisaishi's soundtrack. The film combines the worlds of fairy tales and war. The story is not complicated: during the Korean War, five soldiers of the North and South armies and a second lieutenant of the American army were living in a paradise-like village at the same time. The villagers lived a carefree life, and the three soldiers gradually became friends from enemies. Five fighters fought with their lives to protect the villagers from the US...

    Evaluation action

    The director is unique in the picture of the film. "Grenade Bombing the Granary", "Fighting the Wild Boar Together" and the explosion scenes at the end of the film are all handled by the director with a unique aesthetic like a still feeling. The first half of the film is lighthearted and humorous, and the second half is unusually tragic. From the direction of the plot, it can be said that the main idea of ​​the film is a reflection on...
