Shi Gan

I have just watched the Korean movie Time (Shi Gan), directed the Kim Ki-duk, the same guy who did Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring. Time certainly isn't quite as cryptic as Spring... but it is still fun to watch because it is unpredictable. It is about a woman who undergoes plastic surgery (not to look prettier, but different) because of an insecurity that her boyfriend will soon get bored of her. The lives of the characters simply go downhill right from the start. Sung Hyun-Ah gets really loopy in this film but she is still nice to look at :)

The story gets more improbable and you sometimes marvel at the irrational decisions the characters make. Well, it is quite unbelievable but at least you never know what to expect from it and I guess it does have some underlying meaning about physical appearance, love and identity. I have gripes about the ending though.

I thought some scenes were better left out of the trailer.

Anyway, if you have never watched Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring, I would highly recommend it. If I were to describe it, it is like a summary of life, all taking place in a lake and within four seasons.

Ivalice, Ivalice...

The exams ended on Monday and I have since been putting many hours into thieving, killing evil beasts and saving the world of Ivalice from the clutches of the Archadian empire. Yes! I'm finally playing Final Fantasy 12 after a very, very long wait. The fact that my exams didn't go too well seem secondary now.

I'm gonna go adventure some more.

Once a gamer, always a gamer.
