Moving On

by Dan-bi Yoon Feature Film Competition

Following their parents’ divorce, the teenager Okju and her younger brother, Dongju, move together with their father into their grandfather’s place, whom they barely know. The kids are to be kept in the dark about their father’s struggle to make ends meet selling fake sneakers, and about how serious the state of their grandfather’s health is. Okju, already on the rollercoaster of puberty, and her mischievous brother, quickly take their silent, loving and previously unknown grandfather into their hearts. When one day their aunt appears in need of a new home, a patchwork family of five relatives covering three generations finds itself un- der one roof. Director Dan-bi Yoon tells the story of people forced to reorient their lives in a masterfully staged debut full of subtle humour. In carefully composed images, she allows her characters to live through the entire range of emotions felt when people come together and part. Young cinema from South Korea reminiscent of the great Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda.
