The train passed by

KAM Jeong-won
Korea 2021 75min DCP color Fiction 15 World Premiere
Overview

Heesu, a 27-year-old woman who has worked for a dyeing factory complex in Daegu since dropping out of high school, barely manages to quit the job and goes on a trip for the first time in her life.

Review

From the initial scenes in which machinery and equipment at a factory are captured on the camera as scenery, The train passed by seems to break free from people’s expectations. The images are unfamiliar, and even the narrative method is unusual. There isn’t a lot of dialogue nor explanation of the situation unfolding on the screen. On top of that, the story unfolds as the scenes switch between the factory in Daegu and the seaside village in Gangwon Province without much context, and it would not be strange for each viewer to come up with a different interpretation of the film. Although the scene of the industrial accident is placed as one of the crucial moments in the film, The train passed by does not seem intent on pointing out problems in the social system. Rather, the camera focuses on showing Heesu’s pallid face as she wails silently and tries to leave for somewhere. Perhaps that is what makes it difficult for the viewers to shake off the image of Heesoo that brushes past amidst Buddhist chants or the sounds of nature. This film proves that concise expressions can leave deeper impressions. (MOON Seok)
