Korean Film Festival: Wolf Boy (늑대소년) -- Maryland

As an old woman living in America, Su-ni (수니) receives a phone call about the sale of a countryside house her family owns. Returning to Korea and visiting the abode with her granddaughter, Su-ni begins to reminisce about the events that occurred there in her youth. The young Su-ni (Park Bo-yeong (박보영) and her family move to the country manner due to her ill health, yet the young girl is also suffering from depression. During unpacking, Su-ni discovers a feral boy, hungry and dirty and in need of care. While waiting for a suitable place to send him, the family take him in and name him Cheol-su (철수, Song Joong-ki (송중기). Initially hesitant, Su-ni begins to train Cheol-su like a dog, bringing the pair closer together. Yet her growing affection for the werewolf boy is noticed by spoilt rich-kid Ji-tae  (지태, Yoo Yeon-seok (유연석) who desires Su-ni for himself, and begins to plot his rival’s downfall.

A Werewolf Boy (늑대소년) is a beautifully shot, visually stunning fairy tale and a genuine testament to writer/director Jo Sung-hee’s (조성희) style. The use of colour, lighting and composition work harmoniously together in conveying a wondrous nostalgic tale of innocence and love, ably performed by the cast.  This ravishingly beautiful, alternately tender and absurdist film was a box-office smash in Korea and confirms him as one of the country’s most talented young directors. (Dir.: Jo Sung-hee, Korea, 2012, 126 min., Korean with English subtitles, D-Cinema)
