A number of folks here (most everybody, I think) really liked A Quiet Dream. @plsletitrain mentioned she was waiting for me to watch it and then would join a discussion. Others, too, I believe were waiting on me. So I watched it this weekend and am creating this thread for said discussion. I didn't tag this thread as "Review" because I'm not really reviewing the film in my traditional manner. In a nutshell, y'all must have watched a different version than me. One where something happened. Nothing happened in the version I watched. I know, I know, and I'm kidding a little. I don't need a bombardment of action or thrills/suspense to enjoy a movie, but there's got to be something. There were the three loser-type guys, and the very pretty Chinese-Korean girl and her invalid father, and a little bit about the soccer/biker girl, and that's about all. I was't particularly captivated by their story. Perhaps I missed something. I know right at the end things made an abrupt turn, when the movie went to color and the invalid father got up out of his wheelchair and walked down the street, but I'll be gummed if I can assign any significance to that. I don't mind watching it again, if someone wants to help me out a bit here. It's well shot, and as far as a "series of scenes" go, it's an "ok" series of scenes. But I never got any overarching meaningful narrative. Just that 4 people in the movie were smitten with the pretty girl, and then they talked about this/they talked about that, the they wandered over here and then wandered over there. I'm led to believe the girl died at the end. The placement of her portrait in the traditional Korean memorial manner pretty much gives that impression, but there's no scene or story element that leads up to that (or is there???). She walks out of the bar one night; the next day we see her portrait, and then the color ending and then roll credits. I want to like the movie more, but am having a hard time here. Help me out. Tell me what fascinated you about it.
