The Way Home
2002. Directed by Lee Jeong-hyang , starring Yoo Seung-ho, Kim Eul-boon , 87 mins.
A single mother brings her seven-year-old son, Sang-woo, to a remote village in order for him to spend some time with his mute grandmother as she tries to find a new job. Accustomed to city life, Sang-woo at first finds difficulty adjusting; he prefers fried chicken to the Korean traditional chicken soup that his grandmother prepares. The boy slowly immerses himself in the environment, as he opens himself up to his grandmother. In this humanistic film, director Lee brings out the natural performances of both then child actor Yoo Seung-ho, and non-professional actor, Kim Ul-boon, who plays the grandmother. This poetic tribute to the mother of all mothers would inevitably lead one to look back to one’s own relationship with their own mother.
