Editorial Reviews

After his latest film tanked at the box office, hapless director Man-su found himself stuck with piles of debt and an irresponsibly missing producer. Just when he was also about to make a run for it, he receives a call from the loan shark Bae demanding his debt to be paid immediately. However, instead of the usual gangster treatment he expected to receive, Man-su is met with a curious proposition to settle his debts - stage an elaborate hoax to fool Bae's aging senile father. Old Bae is from North Korea, and has longed to visit his hometown one last in his lifetime. With no other alternatives available, Man-su accepts the threatening challenge to dress up the countryside, hire actors and extras to make their remote locale look like Old Bae's hometown in North Korea. Soon, what started out as an inconvenient necessity eventually unites everyone involved in the project - the nervous Man-su, his young lead actress for this hoax, and the handful of gangster chaperoning the project - in their effort to make an old man's one last wish come true.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review July 6, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
What would you do if you had an aging parent whose only wish before s/he dies is to be reunited with loved ones from whom they were separated by the war and subsequently the 38th parallel? In what appears to be a conscious effort to avoid the melodramatic, `Silk Shoes' addresses this issue with a creative storyline that intersperses comedy throughout. If the film had stuck with the absurdity of the situation, I anticipate it would have been an absolute gem. Unfortunately, the comedic elements are over the top and detract from the film. On the flip side, the strength of `Silk Shoes' lies in the father's tragic story and heartfelt desire to return "home" to North Korea. It is in these moments that the film will touch your heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the older set May 20, 2014
By A. J.
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Not a bad movie is you are older, but I can't imagine younger people watching this. I liked it fine. It is a nice story. It is nice to see a happy ending for these elderly people.
