Top 10 Asian Films That Changed My Way Of Thinking About Asia

I have watched over hundred Asian films in the past five years. I have chosen one of my top 10 interesting movies from Asia. This blog is not about "THE BEST" of "THE BEST" movies. It is about my favorite films that affected me a lot. I hope you like at least some of them and wish you nice watching.

Han Gong-Ju (2013), South Korea
This movie is based on real events. The story will take you deep into the live of a teenage girl. She is trying to find the way how to deal with her past. Moving to another place should help her to sort out the situation. Unfortunately, the past is not going away.

My opinion: I had a shock in the middle of the movie. It was the moment I realized what was actually going on.


Dream Home(2010), Hong Kong
This is the type of the movie where you can actually feel for the killer. Also based on real events. Some dreams are too big and some people will never stop trying to fulfill them.

My opinion: How far can you get with your dream?


Mad Detective (2007), Hong Kong
Detective with very strange investigation methods.

My opinion: I would like to know how many inner personalities I possess.


Welcome to Dongmakgol(2005), South Korea
This movie will not disappoint you if you like black comedy. Very funny, with a bit of seriousness as well.

My opinion: Hye-jeong Kang is a proper loony in the movie.


Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring (2003), 
South Korea
If you are looking for a film for your own consideration. Stop looking. Here it is.

My opinion: It is a shame that people are still victims of their own desires.


The Great Passage(2013), Japan
Passion, good stamina and hope to get things finished. This movie can teach you how not to give up your project.

My opinion: We are done...What next?


The Woodsman and the Rain(2011), Japan
You never know when the good opportunity finds you. You might even work in a woods and suddenly it is there for you.

My opinion: I love forests.


The Girl Who Leapt Through Time(2006), Japan
We all wish to stop the time even for a small moment.

My opinion: I would definitely have a look into the women's showers.


Departures (2008), Japan
You would not believe your wife should be proud of.

My opinion: It is good to have a nice service even when you are death.


I Saw the Devil(2010), South Korea
Chase and punishment. Can the people ever change their behavior?

My opinion: If someone is crazy. It takes long time to change.
