Original title: Aeja
Country: South Korea
Director: Gi-hoon Jeong
Aeja was once a promising student with excellent grades and her biggest dream was to become a successful writer. However Aeja enters a long rebellion phase where she finds it much more interesting to get into fist fights and crash her brothers wedding. The writing isn't going very well and her boyfriend cheats on her, on top of that her mother become very sick and Aeja returns home to take care of her.
This movie is about growing up, to mature and realize that nothing last forever. No matter how angry Aeja is with her mom, her journey will make her realize that she only has one mom and she won't live forever.
It's no secret that I'm a big fan of the South Korean cinema. I'm definitely adding this movie to my favorite list. It's interesting, it's fun, it's touching and it's sad too. I love how fun and heartwarming some scenes are among all the trouble. Aeja is a wondeful and complex character and it's hard to not love her.
