Cinderella


Name: Cinderella


Director: Man-dae Bong

Release Date: August 17, 2006














Introduction:

As I'm sure you've heard, Asian women have a fat for plastic surgery, and chief among these are South Korean women. Lately, it has gotten to the point where even Korean men are partaking in this commonplace after school activity. New eyelids are given as graduation presents; jaw shavings and nose jobs as birthday presents. Of course, common surgery can easily be viewed as a rather expensive method of self-improvement, but in this Korean horror film, plastic surgery can also be deadly to both your physical and mental health. This is the second movie from director Man-dae Bong.

Synopsis:

The film opens a flashback of a birthday gone horribly wrong, then immediately flashes to an incredibly inaccurate plastic surgery performed on a young Korean women seeking a jaw reduction. The surgeon, Yoon Hee, has a lovely daughter who is friends with the girl being operated on. The daughter, Hyeon Su, is not obsessed with facial reconstruction, unlike most of her friends. The two of them seem to have a wonderful and close mother-daughter relationship, until Hyeon Su's friend that was operated upon begins to be tormented by visions of a vengeful ghost with long black hair (we haven't seen that before...) Soon, it becomes apparent that Yoon Hee is hiding a deep dark secret, and trouble brews as it slowly begins to surface...

Review:

I kind of enjoyed this movie. It seems to lack a certain depth though. I mean, really good horror movies tend to pull you into them so that feel like actually in there witnessing all of these events. A really good movie in general has you sympathize with the characters and become genuinely interested in the happenings of their lives. Cinderella lacked this sense of depth. Also, very bad title choice in my opinion. You can sort of draw the stepmother-daughter-stepdaughter connection a little, but for the most part, no. It doesn't work all that well. The main characters themselves were portrayed by fairly decent actresses, but they still left me feeling incredibly cold (no ice pun intended, if you see the film, hehe). The pace is also *quite* slow and the character development was a bit limited for my tastes.

I know, kind of harsh, but that doesn't mean that I hated the movie. For one, the visuals were quite pretty, so it was a pleasant movie to watch, and I ultimately did become emotionally moved by the plight of the two girls, though that was largely due to the incredibly tragic storyline. The scares though, were CHEAP. At the end, they put in this half-hearted attempt to scare you that mostly did not work at all. I am easily frightened. The X-Files once scared me so hard that I couldn't sleep for five weeks. This movie did not scare me all that much. I slept fine.

All in all, it had a good plot-line and back story, but I feel like the director didn't let it live up to it's full potential. Basically, a possibly good movie with incredibly bad editing.

NOTE: The ending is incredibly ambiguous and maybe it's because I spaced out while attempting to watch this, but if you can figure it out, leave me a message/comment, I'd be glad to discuss the two interpretations of the end that I came up with.

Ratings:
Entertainment: 6
Scares: 4 (unless you're into the overdone long haired ghost thing)
Gore: 7 (lots of knives into faces. and the ice thing....why would you DO THAT??)

*watch it if you're bored, just get ready to be incredibly confused*

You have to download this in order to watch it if you don't speak Korean because it's not subbed.
I am including the CrunchyRoll version as well, though the video quality is not so good.

I REALLY didn't understand the ending at all...Did the fake daughter and the mother die? While the real daughter took over fake one's body? Or was the 'fake' daughter actually the REAL daughter and the fake one wanted her face back?
