Poetry - from South Korea. This movie requires patience but if you stick with it you will be rewarded. In this movie you see how men seek to dominate their environment and the women in that environment. Yet the beautiful surprise is the moral courage and inner strength demonstrated by a woman most would view as insignificant and a little silly. This movie and its lessons stay with you.
I saw A Royal Affair  yesterday. A really compelling story with excellent performances by the leads, most of whom aren't big names (but should be). It's a profound alternative to the "monarchy love-story" genre that caters largely to American vanity.
