Forever The Moment
Film info

2007. Directed by Yim Soon-rye , starring Moon So-ri, Kim Jung-eun, Kim Ji-young, Cho Eun-ji, Uhm Tae-woong , 124 mins.

A popular box-office hit, the film dramatizes a real event – the Korean women’s hand-ball team’s winning the silver medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics. Han Mi-sook (Moon So-ri) and Kim Hye-kyung (Kim Jung-eun), whose golden days have passed, join the national handball team with Song Jung-ran (Kim Ji-young) and Oh Soo-hui (Cho Eun-ji). They struggle to keep up their physical condition and handle the generation gap within the team. They also have to deal with various personal issues as middle aged women (‘ajumma’- a degrading term for middle aged women) – such as family finances, child-care, and social discrimination against divorced women. The film invests much time in letting the audience empathize with the ‘ajumma’ characters, which leads us to experience their joy and frustration in the last minutes as if they are our own.
