My Mother, The Mermaid

Directed by Park Heung-shik, 2004
28 December 2007

Director Park heung-shik's My Mother, The Mermaid is wonderful example of superb story telling that immediately induces audiences to walk down their own memory lane, recalling incidents from their own past that find parallels in the film.

Na-young works at a post-office and is sick and tired of being around her shamefully unyielding mother and her pushover father who is excessively nice. The only thing that she can look forward to is her forthcoming trip abroad. But one day her father leaves home without any notice. Her mother does not care what happens to him and does not care to look for him. Na-young has no choice but to give up her dream trip abroad and go in search of her father instead. Once she arrives at her parents' hometown, Na-young is shocked to meet someone she had never expected too, evn in her wildest dreams.
