[10.10.31] Dongwan’s reviewlog: Letters To Juliet

Letters To Juliet
Director: Gary Winick
Starring: Amanda Seyfried, Chris Egan, Vanessa Redgrave, Gael Garcia Bernal
Produced: 2010, U.S, 105 minutes
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars


“No matter what, a ring is always important to a woman.”

Yes. Maybe we have thrown ‘the classics of love’ to the back of our minds on the basis that it’s uncool
Forgetting even the nature of love and in order to hide something or another, we have the case of dating ‘fill-in replacements’, don’t we?
Even if you like the other party you don’t make any compromise in your own life… It’s just ‘dating’, isn’t it?…

This is a movie that deals a sharp blow to old-fashioned men here
Who think that, if they are passionate about their own work, it’s all for the sake of women.
For the women who are just about to start a new romance it will be good if you can watch this movie and watch it a few times.
Because having “a good eye for judgement” is good for reducing your chances of getting hurt…
Korean women have to be a bit more self-centered.
Don’t bother too much about being called a doenjang girl or fake.
You have to meet a man who is willing to make sacrifices for you.
Because even so, at the end of the day it’s still the woman who has to make sacrifices…

I really like it that I can appreciate the role of Amanda Seyfried, which is very much similar to Korean women~
Whether you’re very troubled when it comes to love,
Or if you believe that there’s an expiry date on love, you have to watch this!

More like telling her own story instead of acting, even more beautiful than Amanda Seyfried,
Is how grandmother Claire (played by Vanessa Redgrave) was like when she was a pretty young lady 45 years ago~ (The actor who plays ‘Lorenzo’ is her husband in real life! -0-/)


Actually, movies like ‘The Ugly Truth’, ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’, ‘Sex And The City’ are typical American stories.
People can own guns, teens take drugs, for desserts people eat donuts and chocolate pudding…
These are American stories with people who think that restraint and caution are foolish things.
You can’t build your philosophy of love after watching these typical American stories. Because you’re dealing with Korean men.
Oh well. Although it doesn’t matter if you’re in a global romance…^_^
