Here’s another interesting movie I watched in the 12th Florence Korea Film Fest- The Gifted Hands, a suspense-thriller-sci-fi movie with a blend of good acting and cute boys for fandom purposes and financial profits. The story’s not that bad either.
Pero napaisip lang ako about something.
Sabi nila ang mga gwapo na hindi mo maintindihan, aloof, may pagka artsy at creative ang dating, secretive, tahimik, at loner- MYSTERIOUS ang tawag don. Pero kung yung guy ay hindi maintindihan, aloof, may pagka artsy at creative ang dating, secretive, tahimik, at loner ngunit walang hitsura- CREEPY na ang tawag don.
I guess, the movie has “mysterious guys” in it. My company of movie-goers that night was made up of three girls. First and foremost, I know I am irresistible kaya sila sumama (walang basagan ng trip!). Pero hindi sila talaga ang tipo ng mga manonood ng mga suspense movies. But what made them watch the movie? May mysterious guy siyempre.
Diyan ako humanga sa intelligence ng producer. He got a good director (Kwon Ho-young), promising screenwriters (Lee Yong-Jong and Han Jun-Hee), and formidable actors who are not only good-looking but also talented. Above all, nakuha nila ito.
Need I say more?
Alam kong hindi lahat ay magbabasa ng sumusunod na paragraph na ito dahil sapat na ang picture sa itaas para ma enganyo lahat na manood. Yes, he’s Kim Beom in Boys Over Flowers. Anyway, the story is about a detective who’s looking for a breakthrough in his career. One day he landed on a kidnapping case that wasn’t taken seriously by his colleagues. Later on, the body of the missing girl was found in a playground. No clues were found until he discovered the graffiti of some MYSTERIOUS graffiti artist. He followed the graffiti artist and found out that he possess the ability to see the past just by touching things (psychometry) and tried to convince him to join him in finding out the identity of the serial killer.
Great acting and stunt by Kim Kang-Woo, of course. You might have seen him also in “The Taste of Money”.
