ALMOST LOVE

ALMOST LOVE (2006)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

Went Cathay to catch Almost Love today, a Korean film starring Kwon Sang Woo and Kim Ha Neul.

It’s about the two leads having this 13-year-old friendship, who begins to turn for the better (or for worst) when they start to date other people. It’s so obvious that they were meant for each other but of course, they usually never see it. But this show is either very sad or very touching, because towards the ending or maybe 3/4 of the show, I started to cry and it didn’t really stop till the ending. I think it started before Sang Woo had his accident. So sad, he lost his leg! And he could still joke with his father if he had ate it… It makes people want to laugh and cry at the same time. Not only were his dreams dashed, his life took a big merry-go-round.

Well, overall, the show was funny too. With his eccentric dad and his weird hairdo, and not to mention the toilet scene where he and another cutie were bathing, the romantic bus-top movie watching and all the ball kicking and grabbing… this show is really good for laughs!
