Is online dating killing romance

As an omnibus work, 1.3.6 has to be considered a failure, especially as the three films (Jang's amusing Sonagi Epilogue, Lee's poorly-received Mobius Strip, and Song's poetic Git) don't match, not just in length but in form, content, mood, style, and quality.But if Song betrayed the spirit of the omnibus project, he remained true to the needs of his film.One is that such a low-budget film looks so good visually.In Flower Island, Song showed an unusual talent for the aesthetics of digital cinema, but here he takes it one step further.As he waits, the pressures of his work life start to recede, and he becomes acquainted with the young woman who runs the motel.Named Lee So-yeon (played by -- sure enough -- actress Lee So-yeon of Untold Scandal), the woman is twelve years his junior, and possesses an unusual energy and enthusiasm.

While staying on a remote southern island off Jeju-do, he and his girlfriend of the time agreed to come back and meet at the same motel exactly ten years in the future.Now, years after breaking up, he returns to the small island named Biyang-do, wondering if his ex-girlfriend will remember their appointment.(It seems appropriate that Git's basic setup recalls Richard Linklater's Before Sunset, another film that stands out for the beauty and simplicity of its construction) On Biyang-do, the director -- named Jang Hyun-seong, the same as the actor who portrays him -- is overpowered with both memories of the past and the beauty of the island.Almost missed among all that was a quiet film directed by a virtual unknown but starring the talented Jo Seung-woo.The media found it interesting as 'a story of human triumph' but most people seemed certain that Kang Woo-suk's feature would dominate the box office.
