Upon her release, Mun-hee tries to ditch the handsome young 19 year old, but he just won't go away(looking at Korean bombshell Seo Jeong, I wouldn't want to leave either). Instead they shack up in a motel and have a few more days of exhausting sex(who wouldn't). Eventually, doubts start to creep into Mun-hee's mind, and even though she is in love with him, she decides to end the affair. However, Mun-hee couldn't resist Hyun's persistence and their relationship enters a new phase.
At first impression, Park Chul-Soo's Green Chair may seem like a straightforward tale of erotic sex and the occasional sense of guilt, but it ends up being a lot more than that. The First act of the film is highly explicit (quite tame when compared to the Korean erotica Summertime), there is quite a bit of nudity, Seo Jeong is in her birthday suit in the first few minutes. The film doesn't merely focus on eroticism, so I don't think it will turn off a lot of viewers. When things start to settle down and we get to observe all the details of Hyun and Mun-hee's unusual relationship, from Hyun's fondness for cooking to Mun-hee's preferences when it comes to mattreses and other stuff, the film presents such dimensions with warmth and humor, that results in a nuanced, touching and subversive love story.Read more ›
This is where "Green Chair" ("Noksaek uija") begins. A passionate encounter is consumated and ends abruptly, with the older woman, Mun-hee, jailed and the young man, Hyun, confused and longing for his lover. Soon released, what Mun-hee thought was just sex and youthful desire becomes more as Hyun refuses to let her go, and pursues her with a passion she thought long lost in her jaded world view.
Even though it is based on a true story, "Green Chair" is not the most original of films. This kind of love story has been played out time and again on screen and in newspapers, with much more shocking variances in ages. However, when dealing with an unoriginal story, what matters most are the director's style and the actor's ability, and how they make the most of the material to present the tale.
Director Cheol-su Park has plenty of style, and knows how to position his actors for maximum effect. The first part of the film, detailing the lovers stay at a hotel where Mun-hee teaches Hyun about the more intimate relations between a man and a woman, is incredibly sexy. The realism with which the scenes are handled makes it much more intimate and enticing, without cheesy music or artistic framing and heaving breasts.Read more ›
Not bad, but if you want an even better sample of Korean eroticism, check out Lies or La Belle.
But please somebody help me. After the end of the party scene in which Hyun is kissing etc Mun-hee against the table (and Jean watches, seated at the table), it fades to black and the next thing we see is the subtitle "Mun-hee left"....and Mun-Hee appears saying "One month, two months, one year" like they have not been in touch that long. ....the VERY ending Hyun is kissing a woman, I THINK it Mun-hee. So, did Mun-hee leave for a year or more, and then they reunited? Please if there is anyone who knows answer. Perhaps the English translation in the subtitles did not fully convey what happened and the actual Korean dialog did reveal what happened (I have noticed often that subtitles or captions are often not accurate).
I was feeling really great when, at the end of the party, Mun-hee and Hyan are making out against the table as Jean looks on. Then I was grabbed in the stomach when I saw "Mun-hee left"!!!!!
