Grade: GREAT (4 out of 5)
What can I say? The amount of talent in the South Korean film industry is impressive, and that industry has been on a roll for decades. Director Kim Jee-woon is no exception!
The Quiet Family is such a good comedy that I was laughing at the subtitles. The plot is interesting and fast paced, the dialogue is razor sharp, and the acting fits like a hand in a glove. I could go on about specific plot developments and pacing, but this film was such a surprise to me that I wouldn't want to spoil any of it for others. Just know this is a truly great comedy, and anyone with a passing interest in Korean films should not miss The Quiet Family.
Song Kang-ho is one of the most versatile and talented actors of all time from any country. I would watch any movie he is in.
