Editorial Reviews

Min moves to Japan following his professor father. One day at a local shrine, he meets a beautiful Japanese girl with innocent eyes. Her name is Nanae, and she is an aspiring painter. Min falls for her at first sight, and soon learns that Nanae attends the same school to which Min has just transferred. They become friends, and despite the culture and language barriers it is an intense friendship. When his grandmother suddenly falls ill, Min hastily returns to Korea but can't get in touch with Nanae beforehand. After his grandmother regains her health, he hurries back to Japan to reunite with Nanae, but she is nowhere to be found. Had his true feelings for Nanae not been apparent to her? Why has Nanae disappeared without a word?

As when looking at a particularly lovely painting, layers of beauty and depth are revealed the longer we gaze at this picturesque postcard to young love. Korea and Japan are both represented in this sweet and engaging production. Lee Jun Ki from Korea and Aoi Miyazaki from Japan are the young couple who meet and find constant love in director Sang-hee Han's First Snow, which he cowrote with Kazuhiko Ban. Beautiful shots of both countries frame a deceptively simple tale of young love which has humor and, after a time, an emotional depth and sweetness missing in films coming from anywhere except Korea. Korea has taken the torch dropped by everyone else and has been the champion of romanticist cinema for well over a decade now. Even films dealing with a slightly younger generation than A Moment to Remember and Il Mare have a special quality that touches the heart in a way films coming from other countries do not.

Min is nursing a wound from falling off his bicycle when he stops to take a picture of a Japanese girl at a shrine. He is Korean, there in Japan for a year with his father, who is a potter. Nanae is the shy and lovely Japanese girl from Kyoto he finds enchanting, and is unable to get out of his head. There is much humor as he begins school, oblivious to much of the language because he is Korean. A fight over his bike results in a very funny fencing match caused by the language barrier. More hilarious are his efforts to save her painting case he has inadvertently caused her to drop in a river. With a bit of help from his two school friends, Min and Nanae find moments of sweetness and, perhaps, a love which can last forever. Beneath their blossoming happiness, however, lies a dark shadow, revealed only to the viewer.

Excellent, G-rated romance at a bargain price. It's the story of young love between a Korean boy, Min, and a Japanese girl he meets while living in Kyoto. The couple are separated at first by language/cultural barriers and then by tragic family circumstances. They meet again two years later and have to overcome multiple misunderstandings to be together. Beautiful locations in both Kyoto (especially the famed gardens) and Seoul. This is a very short movie, a little over 90 minutes, with very spare dialogue, but the images will stay with you for a long time. Lee Joon Ki is excellent in the male lead, with his highly expressive face and natural athleticism. Although he was about 25 when he made this film, he is believable as a love-struck 17-year-old. His dogged pursuit of the girl against all odds is really the heart and soul of this movie. The actress playing Nanae is more stoic, but conveys a lot of emotion through her eyes. This film reminds me of the romantic classics Hollywood used to make 50 or 60 years ago. I highly recommend it.

What can you say, Lee Jun Ki is mesmerizing to watch and Miyazaki Aoi is a exceptional talent.. These two young Asian actors have a rare screen chemistry. The storyline is quite believable and beautifully protrayed but the actors. My heart nearly broke, but it was happily mended in the end. You must Believe!
