90min | Release date in South Korea :

Formerly known as "Buckwheat Flower, A Lucky Day and Spring"
Synopsis
Korea's leading modern literature writers Kim Yu-jong, Lee Hyo-seok and Hyun Jin-geon revive literature with pictures.

"Spring", about the youthful romance of the 20s, "A Lucky Day", about the terrible sadness of the 40s and "Buckwheat Flower" is about the lingering memories of the 60s.

Kim Yu-jong's "Spring"
"Marriage or not you have to grow first!"
I mean my future wife Jeom-soon, she has to grow. It's been three years and seven months since I've come here and worked for free. Still, she hasn't grown and I have no idea when she will. I had no idea she was growing sideways and not upwards like other people.

Lee Hyo-seok's "Buckwheat Flower"
"It seems like the story should be told under the moonlight"
"I can't imagine how that came to be now that I think about it"
The moonlight shines breathtakingly on a field full of buckwheat flowers. The scent is plaintive and even the donkeys walk like they're walking on air. Three people set out in a line of donkeys because of the narrow path. The sound of their bells sound out into the field of buckwheat flowers.

Hyun Jin-geon's "A Lucky Day"
The tear of a living person falls onto the face of his dead wife. Kim Cheom-ji rubs his face on hers and mumbles..."Why can't you eat the food I brought home? Why not...? I thought my luck was good today."

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Road Called Life"

    2014/08/15
    As much as they may try, historical pieces can never really get at true authenticity as to what life really looked like back then. It's a fact that's easier to appreciate if you watch older movies. No modern film can ever look as convincingly like the sixties as a movie that was actually made during the sixties. "The Road Called Life" solves this dilemma in an unusual way- by using animation to recreate the feel of old life. Well, that and period stories,...More
