"Col. Mathieu: Should we remain in Algeria? If you answer "yes," then you must accept all the necessary consequences."
Korean cinema is lively and vibrant and has undergone something of a renaissance in the last decade. Films dealing with the Korean War (and related themes) have benefited from this new zest . The war itself is quite fascinating, the ideological clash feared in Europe was transplanted to the Korean peninsula and a Britain weakened and bankrupt from the cataclysm just 5 years in the past, honoured our obligations, stood by allies and defended a country from naked aggression alongside a UN force. It also marked China as returning to the world stage in a quite shocking and devastating fashion.
Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War (2004)
Director: Je-kyu Kang.
When North Korea invades the South, two brothers are forced into the army to help repel the invaders. The older brother attempts to protect the younger and find a way to get him home and out of harms way.
War and fate have different plans for them both...
A breakthrough film in the west that enjoyed major mainstream success. Very good combat scenes and it also touches on the brutality meted out on civilians by North & South Koreans.
