Address Unknown (2001)

Sobre o filme

The film tells the tragic story of teenagers who lived in Pyongtaek, a small Korean city for long under domination of U.S. military personnel. The story revolves around three youngsters: Chang-Guk, the bastard son of a Korean prostitute, lives on the outskirts of town in a bus originally from America and converted into an abode. Ji-Hum, son of a veteran from the Korea War, works as an assistant to a painter in a store. Young Eun-Ok, whose father died in the conflict, has lost one eye as a result of “war games” played by her younger brother. Although none of them is aware of this, all of them are “invalids” from the Korean War (1950-1953) a conflict that supposedly ended fifty years previously, but the effects and resentment from which still make themselves felt in all those who survived. The title of the film comes from the story of a Korean woman who sent letters to her son’s father, a U.S. employee, that were invariably returned stamped with “address unknown”.
