YesAsia Editorial Description

Andrew Lau, co-director of such Hong Kong box office hits as Infernal Affairs and Initial D, helms this beautifully crafted romantic thriller from Korea starring Jeon Ji Hyun, the mega-popular star of My Sassy Girl and Windstruck. Jeon stars as Hye Young, an innocent sidewalk artist living abroad in Amsterdam, with big dreams of someday headlining an exhibition in a real art gallery. In a romantic twist, she starts receiving a pot of daisies each day at 4:15 p.m. from a secret admirer. Oddly enough, the identity of the sender is none other than Park Yi (Jung Woo Sung, from Sad Movie and Musa), a ruthless assassin who works for a Chinese crime syndicate. It seems that while completing a mission, he found himself hiding in a house and began to notice a beautiful girl strolling by on a regular basis. The girl was, of course, Hye Young, and Park Yi quickly becomes smitten by her. A bit shy in the romance department, the hitman keeps his distance, sending his gift of flowers regularly, but anonymously.

As fate would have it, it isn't long before Hye Young crosses paths with Jeong Woo (Lee Seong Jae, from Holiday and Public Enemy), a topnotch Interpol agent, and mistakenly assumes that he's been her secret admirer all along. Through her innocent actions, Hye Young unknowingly tosses her two admirers into a deadly game of cat and mouse, which will not only have consequences for the men involved, but just might reveal some long buried secrets in Hye Young's past as well. How will this eternal love triangle be resolved? With a screenplay co-written by My Sassy Girl director Kwak Jae Yong and featuring appearances by Cheon Ho Jin, David Chiang, Yu Soon Cheol and Dion Lam, Daisy is a complex, sometimes poignant story of pure love!

  It is autumn in Amsterdam...

  A man with a cold soul who smells of gunpowder and a man as warm as the sunshine of spring meet a very special woman...

  The woman is Hye-young (Jeon Ji-hyun), a young Korean artist who paints portraits in the city square, while dreaming of one day holding a solo exhibition of her works. She is a stranger in this city, and Hye-young's only source of strength is the memory of her first love.

  Then she meets a new man - well, almost meets him. She never really sees his face, but after giving him a drawing of a daisy, he responds by having a pot of daisies delivered to her door every day. Could this be the start of a new love for the lonely young artist?

Professional Review of "Daisy (DVD) (Taiwan Version)"

July 4, 2006

This professional review refers to Daisy: Director's Cut Limited Edition DTS
On paper, Daisy sounds like an Asian film fan's dream come true, directed by Infernal Affairs co-helmer Andrew Lau and starring everybody's favourite sassy girl, popular Korean actress Jeon Ji Hyun. Unfortunately, despite the talent involved, and the fact that the crew flew halfway around the world to shoot in Amsterdam, the film turns out to be a bit of a disappointment, being a clichéd romantic drama which wallows in misery and self importance.

The plot follows Hye Young (Jeon Ji Hyun), a rather naïve Korean girl who lives in Amsterdam, spending her life working in her grandfather's antique shop and doing portraits for tourists. One day, she begins receiving flowers everyday at exactly the same time from a secret admirer, who she believes to be a mystery man from her past who once built her a nice little bridge. One day she meets Jeong Woo (Lee Seong Jae from Holiday and Public Enemy) who, unbeknownst to her, is actually an Interpol agent tracking Asian criminals in the Netherlands.

With Hye Young assuming that Jeong Woo is responsible for the flowers, the two fall very slowly into a chaste romantic relationship. However, it turns out that the man sending the flowers is actually Park Yi (Jung Woo Sung from Sad Movie and Musa), an assassin working for a Chinese crime syndicate. Inevitably, the love triangle turns tragic, and the two men end up facing off while poor Hye Young tries to work out which of the two is the love of her life.

Although Daisy is ostensibly a love story, it has the feel of a funeral, with a slow, sombre pace and a plot which piles on the misery. Half of the film's running time is taken up with scenes of the characters staring longingly out of windows into the rain, with the silence broken only by bouts of self-pitying narration. Director Lau seems to be under the impression that the film is a weighty Shakespearean tragedy, rather than yet another gloomy hitman love story. As such, the proceedings have a rather pretentious air, despite the fact that the plot is inherently predictable and based largely around glaring clichés borrowed liberally from the likes of Fulltime Killer and John Woo's classic The Killer.

Almost every aspect of the film is riddled with angst, with the three lead characters suffering as if the weight of the world was on their shoulders and steadfastly refusing to do anything to pursue their romantic inclinations. Park Yi, in particular, as the kind of overly emotional, socially retarded assassin so beloved of modern cinema, is faintly ludicrous, from his blatant incompetence on the job to his hilarious attempts to discuss impressionist painting with Hye Young or his penchant for flower growing. This languid passivity does make the film's central romance somewhat hard to swallow, and Lau's attempts to evoke the feeling that it is fate which brings the characters together comes across more as shoddy coincidence.

Fans of Jeon Ji Hyun should note that her character is far closer to her role in the glum supernatural drama The Uninvited than My Sassy Girl or Windstruck and, while she tries her best to pull a few wacky faces here and there, her performance is certainly more subdued.

The film benefits from glossy production values, and Lau makes good use of the Amsterdam scenery, playing on the contrast between the grey, almost gothic, beauty of the city and the innocent blue skies and flowery fields of the countryside. Unfortunately, he tends to overuse slow motion for some of the emotional scenes, which, when coupled with some of the picture postcard visuals, gives the film the feel at times of a perfume advert. There are a few scenes of surprisingly violent action, though these are few and far between, and, whilst well staged, seem to have been thrown in as an afterthought and do little more than briefly raising the pulse.

Despite its flaws, Daisy makes for engaging viewing, and the story grips almost in spite of itself, mainly out of a morbid fascination to see, not which of the men Hye Young will end up with, but to see who will lie dying in her arms. The self-indulgent melodrama works well enough to tick all the right boxes for the genre, and the film functions perfectly well as an enjoyably glossy, weepy romance.

It is worth noting that the DVD features the director's cut of the film, which for once indicates that it is substantially different from the theatrical version. It not only adds 25 minutes, but re-orders some of the scenes, making the narrative less linear. Although this new version is perhaps too long, it is surely superior, as, without these changes, the film would surely have been even more conventional and suffered from even murkier character development.

Movie Grade: 3/5

good film to watch Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
This is a very touching love story with very pleasant cast. There are a bit of shooting going on, otherwise very quiet dialogue and very calm throughout. I was hoping for a happy ending, unfortunately didn't happen. The song near the end was beautiful. I like that too. It is worth watching as it is lots more entertaining than most other films.

Daisy Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I thoroughly enjoyed this, although it is a little hard to believe these Koreans just happen to live and work in Amsterdam. At times, the story is a little pretentious but, hey, the chemistry works and the story flows along fine. However, I did want a 'good' ending! Even so, I'd like to see more of such films in the future, please!

jung woo sung!! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Jung woo sung is as handsome and great as ever! As for the other actor, i didn't like him. Cheon did great as always. The plot for Daisy was romantic, and sad, but creative. It had a good pace, but a real tearjerker. I can't say Daisy was the best movie i'd watched, but well done.

Love Blooms Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
Old fashion love story with a killing spree in the middle of a scenic location. Its not your sassy girl but its a good movie. very low key. No over the top plot which makes it an average movie , but was pleasant to watch because of its simplicity .

Awesome Movie Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Well I have to say that evry movie that Jeon Ji Hyun is in just seems to get better and better. Rated it short of perfect because no movie is perfect and the ending could have been expended I thought. One of my favorite movies for sure
