Overview

Mija lives with her middle-schooler grandson in a small suburban city located along the Han River. By chance, she takes a “poetry” class at a local community center and is challenged to write a poem for the first time in her life. She tries to discover beauty in her everyday life, but she learns the world is not that beautiful when she encounters an urgent incident.

Review

Poetry shakes Mija to wake her up. It pulls her into the world and ultimately drags her beyond the world. For inspiration, she closely watches every object and event and looks at them again and for a long time. However, things go in an unexpectedly brutal way. She confronts a girl’s death, her grandson’s involvement, and behaviors of people who are directly or indirectly responsible for the death. As she shows early symptoms of Alzheimer’s, her condition interferes with how she sees, removes the context, and makes her focus only on the things before her eyes. Mija and her poems stand somewhere in between. She is in a state of being alive but close to death. She sees but is unable to see the other side and quickly forgets. She can’t see things clearly when writing a poem. And there is a limit to seeing. As her time of forgetfulness approaches, the film writes down Agnes’ Song for the first and last time. With the chorus narrated by the people who had disappeared, her rhyme flows to the archetype of poetry. [JEONG Jihye]
