Professional Review of "Take care of my cat"

May 30, 2003

This professional review refers to Take Care Of My Cat (Hong Kong Version)

Take Care of My Cat is a very genuine depiction of the relationship and life of five young women. It does not have any blatant twist, nor does it have any tear-jerking tragic element. The director simply handles the five characters in a sincere and sympathetic way.

After the five girls graduate from high school, they have different encounters. Hae-joo (Lee Yo-Won) works as an office assistant in a brokerage firm; Tae-hee (Bae Doo-Na) works for her parents and a poet for free; Ji-young (Ok Ji-Yeong) is jobless; Bi-ryu and Ohn-jo (Lee Eun-Ju, Lee Eun-Shil) stay together. While each of them has some unpleasant experience working in the society, will their friendship deteriorate?

Why is this film called Take Care of My Cat? Superficially speaking, the cat doesn't seem to relate to the story at all. It does not occupy much time in the film. However, if you examine this film more closely, you'll notice that the cat is in fact a very important motif. The cat symbolizes and summarizes the friendship of the five girls. The vulnerable yet solid personality of the cat reflects the unstable condition of their friendships. On the one hand, they are very good friends and their relationship is solid, on the other hand, they rely heavily on cell phone to communicate, the link is vulnerable and can break easily if the cell phone malfunctions.

As a matter of fact, the cat is also a metaphor of the five girls' personalities. They are active (Tae-hee), arrogant (Hae-joo), helpless (Ji-young) and adorable (twin sisters). All of these are the characteristics that are usually assigned to a cat. Therefore, to a certain extent, "take care of my cat" can also mean "take care of myself" implicitly.

Technically speaking, the soundtrack of this film is excellently produced by M&F. The cinematography is nice too. The comparison between urban and rural areas is brilliant. In terms of the cast, Lee Yo-won and Ok Ji-yeong stand out among the five actresses, while the twin sisters are also very cute and funny. Bae Doo-Na is the most renowned actress in the film, however, it seems that Korean directors always love to deglamorize their stars, like in No Blood No Tears, Jeon Do-Yeon is deglamorized by director Ryu Seung-Wan. In this film, Bae's role is not as attractive as the other characters. Nevertheless, her performance is still persuasive.

As a directorial debut, Jeong Jae-Eun has done a superb job. Perhaps she is a female herself, she can examine the subject in a very intimate and sincere manner. The depiction is sympathetic yet authentic. It is as if the director is revealing her own story to us. Although it is not a very entertaining flick, Take Care of My Cat is highly recommended for any Korean cinema lovers.

Cool guy(s) - Bae Doo-Na, Lee Yo-Won, Ok Ji Yeong, Lee Eun-Ju, Lee Eun-Shil

On the road to adulthood Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
"Take Care of My Cat" tracks the intersecting lives of five former high school friends from Inchon as they meander toward becoming adults. Two of them are twins who sell homemade jewelry on the streets. One distributes flyers promoting her father's business. One works as an OL for a financial firm in Seoul. And the fifth is an aspiring artist who hunts for work while living in impoverished squalor with her grandparents.

The movie provides no plot and, indeed, we don't really see much growth on the part of any of the characters. Instead, we see the strains in their relationships as the things they have in common (i.e., high school) wane in comparison to their differences. And we see them yearning in a directionless sort of way for something more in their lives, as they fight to hang onto their friendship.

In less skilled hands, this might make for an abstract and tedious film, but "Take Care of My Cat" avoids that pitfall by bringing its characters to vivid life. We become drawn into and engrossed by the movie simply because we recognize these people in ourselves or our friends.

Special mention must be made of the performance of Bae Du Na, whose big-eyed, sensitive appearance has a remarkably magnetic quality; you can't take your eyes off her. I also should give credit to the movie's intriguing soundtrack, comprised more of ambient sounds than of recognizable melodies; it sets just the right tone.

"Take Care of My Cat" will be warmly received by anyone who seeks a slice of real life on screen. I highly recommend it.

Two Discs? Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I don't know what version of it I saw, but it was DVD and came with a second disc! (which isn't mentioned here).

Ji Young, the artist girl who spends the most time with the cat, is intriguing because she often seems distant with her friends as she wonders and wanders, gets depressed, etc. She has a deep, tomboyish voice which I found kinda charming. Hae-Joo is the overall "pretty girl" of the movie, while Tae-Hee has the cutesy, kiddie face. Biryu and Ohnjo are actually twins in the movie with long hair and bangs, so they have a distinct look. (For guys who always wanted to see twin Korean girls, this is it!) The movie is mostly drama with just a few comedic/fun parts, and the girls only have one guy friend who hardly even shows up. So this is a good drama movie for guys who are tired of dramas with too many male actors, heheheh! Finally as a warning, there is one main sad part in the movie. I'm not that into dramas, but I would watch this a second time.

The version that I watched came with a second disc that contained two half-hour short-films by the same director..... which means you get more stuff for the price of one DVD! The second of the two short-films stood out for me... it's about a cute lil Korean girl who has to write her diary in secret code so her dad won't understand it. She's all into the X-Files show, and likewise gets strange dreams. Meanwhile, she and her baby sister live with their alcoholic dad... the main drama seems to be underlying. This is sweet, bittersweet, and just a little bit disturbing in the second half.

Realistic and moving Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I watched this on tv the other night and was impressed by the realism portrayed in the story. It reminds me of female friendship films like 'Steel Magnolias' and like them it deals with a lot of painful real life issues. Growing up namely ~ I could relate to the characters of the girls and the situations they found themselves in. The ending seemed poignant and sad in a way, but also happy.
In all it was a good watch. A bit slow at times, but overall I enjoyed the story.

Good stuff Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Good movie - about the changes of a teen and becoming an adult and trying to figure out what you're going to do in life. Not a movie that I'd go buy though it wasn't exciting and more than half of it was rather depressing watching them go through their teenage problems.. because they're becoming "adults" their relationships start to change between each other.. it's rather sad. Not my type of movie to be watching on a Friday night - unless you're depressed about your teenage life?
