Full movie description "Holiday in Seoul":A newspaper reporter becomes a witness to a murder and finds himself relentlessly pursued by the killer.
Reviews of the Holiday in Seoul"Holiday in Seoul" (1956) is a movie I found to be very charming. The summary on IMDb is completely incorrect: "A newspaper reporter becomes a witness to a murder and finds himself relentlessly pursued by the killer." Yes, there is a killer and an accomplice, but their crimes are never shown and the reporter is not a witness. The reporter is not pursued by the killer. He accidentally comes across him when they share a ride back to Seoul.
The movie was delightful to me in several ways. We see the lives of a number of people on a holiday day in Seoul, and their lives intersect eventually. I love the feeling this film gives for the time and place. The movie opens quietly with pastoral views and views of Seoul. It's quiet because the day is a holiday. There is a "seeing-eye" narrator at first who talks directly to some characters, an interesting device. I need the subtitles, which are good. This movie has been restored because it was at the start of a blooming in Korean cinema. I also enjoy taking in the Asian characters and interactions, which are so human but also so culturally different from American.
The movie opens with an older man awaking on a park bench after having been inebriated. He gradually realizes that it's a holiday when he arrives at work and finds the place closed. He goes home where he passes his son, who wants some money. The narrator then links us to the two main characters, the reporter and his wife who is a doctor. We see how they get along. The actress playing the wife is a very beautiful woman, not timid, and not stuck on herself. The husband is a reporter with a ready smile and happy disposition. She calls him an "egoist", and she becomes happy when he accedes to her wish to make a very full day of the holiday, as if they were on vacation. However, this is not meant to be. His fellow reporters play a prank on him, sending him out on a phantom story about the killer. Little do they know that this will lead to a real encounter. Eventually, they have his wife believing that he's having a love affair with another woman. She controls her emotions admirably.
There are several other sub-plots involving other characters. In one of these, the reporter's wife is called away to deliver a baby. In another she counsels the unmarried and pregnant daughter of the old man we first saw on the park bench; that sub-plot leads to her lover who is making money on the streets by a gambling game, the Asian version of a shell game that uses string instead.
Is this film missing some scenes? I couldn't follow the plot in some places. There is one episode in which the reporter encounters a woman who is mad. I have yet to figure out how this came about.
Toward the end when we see views of Seoul again from a distance, there is a radio broadcast playing "God Bless America". This is, after all, 1956 and the Korean War has been ended with a truce.
This movie, you can see, is hard to categorize. The title is apt because it sets the framework for a variety of characters and episodes while keeping a focus on the married couple. The movie is not tragic. It is hopeful and romantic in places, with the touches of thriller about it.
The theme is mainly mistrust and misunderstanding. This crops up in depicting almost all the relationships of families. There is one entire sequence in which a wife goes out with her girl friends and spurns her husband, who then suspects her of infidelity.
