Today I want to talk about Miracle in Cell No. 7.
I saw the movie tonight and God I'm so happy nobody saw me, when I watched that. I'm still a crying mess, because I had the urgent feel that one ton of tears aren't enough, so I skipped again through the saddest scenes in the movie and added 5 tons of tears to my lake of tears.
But let me tell you a bit about the movie.
Miracle in Cell No. 7 is about a handicapped father, who is accused of killing a child wrongly. So he is sent to prison and there he befriends with prisoners which are also in his cell.
They help him to see his daughter and yeah.. I can't say more, because that would be a too huge spoiler, I think.
The movie is often listed as comedy and let me say that: IT ISN'T. Don't make the mistake and watch the movie, because you want to laugh. Sure there are a few scenes which are very funny, but most of the time you're sobbing. ...Maybe not, when your heart is a stone.
Even the EXO members cried, ok? So all your tears are manly because even korean Idols cry about this movie.
I'm still not sure if I recommend the movie or not. It was one of the best movies I ever saw, but it was so sad that I want to hold it for my own.
But I think I chose recommend this time.
Let me say what I liked about this movie.
1) It had a great cast. Kal So-won who played the daughter was so cute and great, also the fathers actor (Ryu Seung-ryong) was so skilled! He managed to act handicapped so great that it was really authentic! The movie had also Park Shin Hye in it. She's one of my favorite korean actresses since I started with K-Drama!
2) The relationship between the father and the daughter was so heartwarming, that you just couldn't help smiling or crying when they saw each other again.
3) The Prisioners.. They made the movie less sadder and at the same time much sadder. Can't describe what I felt.
At the end, I can recommend it to everyone who wants to watch a good movie with a great story and who isn't frightened of korean movies and tears.
I never thought it would be that good, even if I heard much good about it.
Sorry that this is only a "OMG THIS MOVIE IS GREAT" Post, but I couldn't help.
Have a nice day,
Here have my mood when I think about the movie:
