wiw vol 11 - Castaway on the Moon

2009 - NR - 116 minutes
Streaming Netflix - Foreign - South Korea
(Kimssi pyoryugi : Foreign title)


After failing to kill himself by jumping off a bridge, the man is washed up on a deserted island in the middle of the river, but within view of the city's high-rises. He attempts to escape, but soon accepts his fate and the challenges in living on the island. A reclusive young woman, who takes close-up shots of the moon and has not left her apartment in years, spies him on the island and comes to think of him as her own alien.

Lately we have been watching a lot of Korean movies. We are starting to know some of the actors and really love them. Most of the movies that we have been watching have been thrillers with lots of blood and guts. But not this one. This one was under foreign comedies. I wouldn't really classify it a laugh out loud comedy, I'm not entirely sure what I'd class it as. I really loved it though, a really sweet movie and I highly recommend you all take two hours out of your lives to go watch it.
