Korea 2005 131min 35mm color feature Fiction
Review

Unemployment among young jobseekers; rising bankruptcies; the death of single screen theaters; homosexuality; teenage fan culture; etc, it is perhaps impossible to summarize this film that is overflowing with the various contradictions and sub cultures of Korean society. But as the long and intuitive title of the film implies, the film does not penetrate through the core of these issues. Instead, the film arranges these issues within a time frame of a week, and inside a space called Seoul. On top of that topographical map seven or eight romances intersect, collide, and interfere with each other. This is similar to the lives outside the screen that constantly pass by each other. Just as we pass through the events displayed on screen, the characters inside the screen also pass through numbers of screens. Just like the film´s target audience-the ´internet generation´-the characters of this film are surrounded by all sorts of screens: television screens, cell phone screens, projector screens, surveillance camera screens, etc. As if conscious of this, the film shows these couples´ lives reflected on various screens, and then it begins to suture. But the film leaves behind a question: what will become of the characters after they go through ´the most beautiful week´ of their lives?
