I love A Bittersweet Life. I never thought I would love a violent movie, but this one gripped me from beginning to end. I want to watch it again just to savor Lee Byung-hun. His portrayal of Sun-woo blew my mind. He was just magnificent. If it wasn’t 2.00 am. when I finished, I would have rerun it immediately.
These are my thoughts about certain aspects of the movie. I won’t try to be too analytical because I think this movie is not easily analyzed. It’s beautiful and magical in its own way and some questions may never be answered.
