Old Garden

Old Garden (2007; dir. Im Sang-soo) 2
Im Sang-soo goes through the motions in this history-inspired tear-jerker. Flashback transitions that tried too hard to be clever, not enough editing, and the (unfortunately) requisite over-the-top ending with evening snowfall.
Gwangju massacre nostalgia, if there can be such a thing.
