Ozu-esque and elegiac. Film begins and ends with the same image: a snowy scene with a tiny old lady at the left-bottom corner, in which she's the focus. At the end, we understand that she's mourning her husband's passing, with the mound of earth across the field. The silk-Benetton-colour-coordinated costumes did not fit the docu-format, YET what a charming couple!

Calm yet powerful. True love can exist in any form, anywhere. Purely adorable.

When my husband and I were dating (long before marriage), he had said to me once: (saw an old couple holding hands, walking in front of us) "I want to grow old with you and hold your hands like them."
This documentary reminded me of that time. What a lovely 86minutes with heart-warming music that makes the story somewhat like a fairy tale.

This is a beautiful, moving and tender portrait of what marital love should look like! Well worth viewing!

A highly unlikely film. A (relatively) short documentary dealing with an aging Korean couple. Could have been sickly sweet, but there is enough real-life trouble to keep it above that. I quite enjoyed it. Probably could be used as a teaching tool about growing old and dying.

A beautiful, sincere documentary about a Korean couple, and their great love for each other and for their pets, especially, at the closure of their lives! Great sceneries, cinematography, and a beautifully-told story! Very well-done! It will probably have you in tears, as you feel for these wonderful people! It is a great window into the Korean culture and symbolism in some of their traditions! I highly recommend it! Great documentary!
