spiritual perspective on video/dvd

The Way Home—from Seoul and back again

Over the years, movie heroes have come in all shapes and sizes. A guy with a red cape waving from his shoulders. A self-made paralegal, who has highly evolved investigative powers. Even an animated pop-up toaster. But a hero in the form of a Korean grandmother with a walking stick?

The Way Home, said to be Korea's second-highest grossing film in history, has recently been released on video and DVD, with English subtitles, a PG rating, and a running time of one hour and 25 minutes. The social wrongs in this movie don't appear in the form of gangsters, corporate polluters, or the like. What this Korean grandmother confronts is simply her seven-year-old grandson, Sang-woo.
