A wholesome film depicting a hero in the form of a taxi driver and the commendable significance of his role in exposing the military dictatorship of Chun Doo-hwan and the massacre he orchestrated in Gwangju, May 1980.
If you had no idea of what this film was about then you’re thrown into the deep end with our main protagonist, Kim Man-seob, and thus begins an engrossing 137 minutes full of great dialogue and powerful moments that’ll, definitely, tug on heart strings.
“Fun” fact: Chun, unfortunately, ruled till 1988. At times even with the help of the U.S., who sanctioned military subjections on the people in order to minimise anti-U.S. conviction and maintain stability in the region.
However, you should, definitely, research and check for yourself tbh...
