I tend to get very angry at movies which could've been awesome and then aren't... I was loving the movie until the last, say, 5 minutes sorry if that was a spoiler... I have a couple of other friends who've seen it and it's dividing - some think it was brilliant (which in lot of ways it was) and others were less enthousiastic. It's worth a watch though
Yes. In one part the last guard who spoke in the trailer said he didn't want North & South Korea to join together. He made the comment, What if someone I guarded from the camps recognised me in the street?
Shin says in the film when the camps are destroyed he'd go back & build a farm on that land, where he was born. It's heart-breaking.
It's an extraordinary documentary , I highly recommend it.
I saw a documentary several years ago about orphans in N Korea. The government stance is that there are no "unofficial" orphans there - they don't exist. Anyone caught acknowledging them or feeding them will be beaten. Needless to say these children often die. Official orphans are a sort of publicity campaign and live in luxury, but are trotted out every so often to show what a caring country N. Korea is.
