[HanCinema's Image Gallery] "Miracle in Cell No. 7"

2013/09/21 | Permalink

A selection of shots from Lee Hwan-gyeong's blockbuster "Miracle in Cell No.7" (2013).

Ye-seung (Kal So-won) and her dad Yong-goo (Ryu Seung-ryong).

The "Sailor Moon" character is from a Japanese manga of the same name by Naoko Takeuchi. It is remembered as a defining player in the medium's 'magical girl' genre.

Simply and honest Love on display here.

A series of misfortunate events quickly turns tragic.

Ye-seung (age seven) is left at home and wondering.

The days of sleeping next to one another under the stars seem far away right now.

Yong-goo doesn't seem to belong in society and, as we suspected, looks very much a target going into prison.

The "Sailor Moon" motif had some interesting inserts.

It could happen.

Ye-seung holds her nerve here and uses her height to her advantage.

Religious performances are just one of the perks of prison, but what we're really watching is a break-in.

Ye-seung's superpower is her adorableness, everyone breaks eventually.

One of the real heroes in the film was Ye-seung's teacher.

Her dad is in serious trouble.

The Cell No.7 family In search of a Miracle.

Oh Dal-soo breaks character.

Even the prison guards were mesmerized and let things slip.

Unconditional love trapped in space.

The court scenes are very melodramatic and frustrating.

She's using all her magic right now, and it might not be enough.

She has the Moon, but something is missing.

Hope floats.
