Review

Four members of Waikiki Brothers dreamed of becoming musicians but gave up their pursuit. In the end, they regain hope. Director Yim follows all the years of joy and frustration. She rarely uses close-ups in the film but observes them from a distance to fill the traces of failure with love and sympathy. The tawdry band name reminds us of our faded but innocent memories. The film doesn’t stay in nostalgia but praises innermost power pulled from deep inside of our heart no matter how scruffy the life is. [KIM Youngjin]
