YesAsia Editorial Description

Renowned Korean director Park Kwang Su made his directorial debut in 1988 with the highly acclaimed Chilsu and Mansu, considered by many to be the pioneering film of the Korean New Wave. The film pairs for the first time acclaimed actors Ahn Sung Ki and Park Joong Hoon, who would later go on to collaborate in Nowhere to Hide and Radio Star. This landmark work vividly portrays the lives and attitudes of the younger generation during South Korea's pre-democratization era. Chilsu and Mansu has won many awards, including Best New Director and Best Screenplay at the 27th Daejong Awards, Best New Director at the 25th Baeksang Awards, and Best Actor for Park Joong Hoon at the 9th Film Critics Award.

Chilsu (Park Joong Hoon ) quits his job as a theater sign painter when his sister, whose fiance is an American soldier, offers to help him migrate to the States. While waiting, he begins work as an assistant for Mansu (Ahn Sung Ki), whose father is a political prisoner. While Mansu suffers from the shame of his father's imprisonment, Chilsu loses contact with his sister and even gets dumped by his girlfriend Jina (Bae Chong Ok). Partners in misery, these two lost young men pace frantically around the huge billboard they have just finished. From below, their raving and raging is interpreted as a suicide attempt, and soon they not only earn themselves an audience, even the police spur into action.

1980년대 코리안 뉴웨이브의 신호탄
<칠수와 만수>를 블루레이로 만난다
한국영상자료원, <칠수와 만수> 블루레이 출시

한국영상자료원(원장 류재림)은 한국영화사의 걸작들을 추려 블루레이로 출시한다. 한국영상자료원이 기획한 한국 고전영화 블루레이 컬렉션은 지난해에 첫 선을 보인 이후 영화 팬들로부터 많은 관심과 사랑을 받아왔다. 지난해의 <하녀>(김기영, 1960)와 <바보들의 행진>(하길종, 1975) 블루레이를 잇는 올해의 블루레이 주인공은 <별들의 고향>(이장호, 1974)과 <칠수와 만수>(박광수, 1988). 두 편 모두 2014년 한국영상자료원이 선정한 ‘한국영화 100선’에 꼽힌 작품이자 각각 감독의 연출 데뷔작이라는 공통점을 지녔다. 그 중에서 <칠수와 만수>는 1980년대 후반 코리안 뉴웨이브를 선도했던 작품이었다는 데에서 한국영화사적 의의가 큰 작품이다.

‘코리안 뉴웨이브’의 문을 연 <칠수와 만수>
<칠수와 만수>는 <그들도 우리처럼>(1990), <그 섬에 가고 싶다>(1993) 등을 통해 사회에 대한 냉철한 시각과 삶에 대한 연민 어린 시선을 보여주는 박광수 감독의 연출 데뷔작이다. 장기수 아버지를 둔 탓에 연좌제에 묶여 번듯한 직업 한 번 가져본 적이 없는 만수와 아메리칸 드림에 취해 현실을 도피하고자 하는 칠수 등, 1980년대 우리 사회 민중들의 희로애락을 그린 작품.

<칠수와 만수>가 개봉한 1980년대 후반은 한국 현대사의 굵직한 사건들이 산재했던 시기이다. 1987년 6월 시민항쟁은 민주화의 열기와 함께 대통령 직선제를 이끌어냈고, 이듬해인 1988년의 서울올림픽은 ‘한국’, ‘서울’의 지명도를 높이는 계기가 되었다. 이처럼 굵직한 사건들 속에서 대중과 만난 <칠수와 만수>는 “현실을 날카롭게 꼬집는 풍자와 유머”로 “우리 주변 평범한 생활인들의 자화상”을 그려낸 ‘신인’감독의 연출력으로 이 시기 내내 극찬 받은 작품이다. 오늘날의 관객에게는 주인공들의 주생활 공간인 1980년대 서울의 모습을 되새길 수 있다는 점에서 또 다른 관람의 재미를 제공할 것이다.

배우들의 풋풋한 시절을 사진집으로 만나다
이번 블루레이에는 감독 친필 사인이 인쇄된 사진집이 별도로 수록되어 있다. <칠수와 만수> 블루레이의 백미라 해도 과언이 아니다. 제작 현장 및 영화 스틸 사진으로 꾸며진 이 사진집은 박광수 감독과 제작 스태프들의 모습뿐 아니라 지금의 한국영화계에서 든든한 버팀목이 되고 있는 배우 안성기, 박중훈, 배종옥의 2,30대 시절의 풋풋한 모습을 만나볼 수 있는 기회를 제공한다. 한편 <칠수와 만수> 블루레이에는 명지대학교 교수 김영진 평론가와 박광수 감독의 대담이 음성해설로 실려 있어, 제작 동기부터 촬영 에피소드 등에 대한 이야기들을 흥미진진하게 풀어내고 있다.

한국영상자료원의 네 번째 블루레이 컬렉션 <칠수와 만수>는 12월 10일부터 주요 온 ∙오프라인 판매처에서 구입할 수 있다.

ㅇ 줄거리
민방위 훈련 중인 서울의 어느 대낮, 칠수(박중훈)는 대피 중에 우연히 지나(배종옥)를 만난다. 이후 칠수는 패스트푸드점에서 파트타임으로 일하는 대학생 지나의 환심을 사고자 그녀 앞에서 미대생 행세를 한다. 그러나 사실 칠수는 극장 간판화가 출신으로, 사수의 구박으로 홧김에 극장을 그만 둔 후 도색공 만수(안성기)를 쫓아다니며 그의 일을 돕고 있다. 칠수는 입만 열면 미국에 있는 형으로부터 초청장을 받아 마이애미로 떠날 거라고 말하지만, 그에게는 가족이라 해봤자 동두천 하우스 보이 출신 아버지와 양공주가 되어 오래 전 집에서 쫓겨난 누나가 전부다.

만수는 고층건물 도색부터 대형 옥외 간판 작업까지 가리는 일 없이 과묵하고 성실하게 임하는 청년이지만, 그에게는 남들에게 말 못한 가정사가 있다. 양심수로 장기 복역 중인 아버지 탓에 만수는 제대로 된 직업을 얻지 못하고, 생계를 위해 도색 일을 전전하며 고층건물에 매달려야만 하는 처지다. 과거에 중동 파견 건설 노동자 선정에서 탈락한 것도 아버지의 이력이 장애가 된 때문이었다.

어렵사리 옥외 간판 일을 따내 작업하던 어느 날, 하루 일을 마친 칠수와 만수는 작업장 철탑에 올라가 소주병을 기울이며 자신들의 인생을 푸념하기 시작한다. 그들은 탁 트인 청공에서 세상을 내려다보고 고래고래 소리를 치며 가슴 속 체증을 쓸어내린다. 그러나 이들을 올려다보던 행인과 경찰은 이를 노사 갈등으로 인한 고공투쟁으로 오해한다. 이윽고 군경과 취재진들이 물려오면서 사태는 걷잡을 수 없이 커진다. 결국 만수는 철탑 아래로 몸을 던지고, 칠수는 철탑에서 끌려 내려와 경찰에 연행된다.

Professional Review of "Chilsu and Mansu (Blu-ray) (Korea Version)"

June 18, 2007

This professional review refers to Chilsoo and Mansoo (DVD) (Korea Version)
Chilsoo and Mansoo, originally released back in 1988, is an important piece of Korean cinema, not only in that it was one of the films which launched the country's new wave, but also in that it marked the first pairing of popular actors Ahn Sung Ki and Park Joong Hoon, who would go on to team up for the likes of Nowhere to Hide and the recent Radio Star. The film was the first from Park Kwang Su, a director noted for politically themed efforts such as the fiercely ideological Black Republic. A major cinematic milestone, it won multiple plaudits back in its day, including prizes for Best Director and Best Actor at numerous Korean awards ceremonies.

Chilsoo (Park Joong Hoon) and Mansoo (Ahn Sung Ki) are a couple of downtrodden young men who work as building and billboard painters, desperately trying to make ends meet. Both have their own worries, with Chilsoo having difficulty holding onto his relationship with fast food worker Jina (Bae Chong Ok) and Mansoo suffering family problems as a result of his father being a convict. Things continue to go downhill until finally one day after finishing work on a giant rooftop advert, the two climb to the top and howl their anger at the world - unfortunately, their actions are taken as a suicide attempt by the police, and a great crowd gathers to see what they will do next.

Chilsoo and Mansoo is obviously first and foremost a slice of bitter social commentary, following the changing attitudes and struggles of young people in pre-democracy 1980s Korea. Chilsoo represents the frustrations of the emerging younger generation, chasing the money and dreams promised by advertising and education, but unable to hold down work and increasingly finding himself part of the lower class. Mansoo on the other hand is a slightly older man, in his case unable to secure proper employment due to his father being a political prisoner, representing a growing disillusionment with the ruling regime. Both are frustrated artists, with no real future or indeed chance to progress, increasingly spending their time sitting around and getting drunk in the dingy flat, and as such the film has a depressingly believable air of hopelessness. This is hammered home towards the end when Chilsoo and Mansoo's attempts to vocalise their dissatisfaction fall on deaf ears, underlining the increasing breakdown in communication between the state and people.

Another theme is the increasing encroachment of US culture in Korea which permeates the film, from the Burger King restaurant where Jina works, through to videogames and pop music, as well as the frequent appearance of the US flag - Chilsoo ironically spends a fair amount of the film wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the stars and stripes. US films are also everywhere, in posters and in the cinemas, with clips from the ludicrously patriotic Rocky 4 being shown. Chilsoo speaks of the US as a far off utopian dreamland where all his problems will be solved, reflecting the attitudes of many at the time. The climatic scene also has a certain irony to it, given that the billboard on which the two are perched is a lurid advert for a brand of American whiskey.

None of these lofty intellectual aspects of the film would work were it not for the fact that Chilsoo and Mansoo are both great, fascinating characters who are far more than mere cultural ciphers. An amusing odd couple who complement and play off each other well, they give the film a sense of balance beyond representing certain social types. Both are likeable and sympathetic, and their efforts to get by do make for some amusing moments amongst the gloom, including one funny scene in which Chilsoo persuades Mansoo to pretend to be an artist back from France to impress Jina and her friend, complete with pipe and beret (possibly another dig at Korean people assuming western styles and values). Ahn Sung Ki and Park Joong Hoon give excellent performances, and there is a real chemistry between the two, giving the film a genuine sense of camaraderie and shared struggle. The film;s other relationships are equally rich, such as the complex romance between Chilsoo and Jina, which develops in a manner neither traditional nor straightforward.

As a result, Chilsoo and Mansoo works well on a number of different levels, not only as a stinging examination of social woes but as an excellent and very human piece of storytelling. It is easy to see why the film caused such a stir during its original release, and the fact that it has lost none of its effectiveness or impact nearly twenty years later confirms its place as a classic of modern Korean cinema.

Sad Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I watched this in my Korean Literature class. The summary yesasia.com gives is a good description of what goes on. It's not my type of movie to watch, since watching their lives is depressing.. but it's a good movie. And it portrays the reality of the "common" people and some of the things they had to go through. (the story is set in 1987)
