YesAsia Editorial Description

Writer-director Jang Jin literally takes audiences to heaven in his latest film Romantic Heaven. Delivering perhaps his most heartfelt work yet, Jang sprinkles his signature offbeat pacing, quirky dialogue, and wacky touches into a sentimental exploration of the ties that hold people together in life and in afterlife. The buoyant ensemble cast of Kim Su Ro, Kim Dong Wook, Shim Eun Kyung, Lim Won Hee, Kim Moo Yeol, Kim Won Hae, and newcomer Kim Ji Won form three connected stories about coming to terms with life, death, and separation. Beloved veteran actor Lee Soon Jae stars as the big man above in this warm human comedy that readily mixes laughter with tears.

Mimi (Kim Ji Won) is searching for a bone marrow donor to save her dying mother. Lawyer Min Gyu (Kim Su Ro) is grieving the loss of his wife. Taxi driver Ji Wook (Kim Dong Wook) is taking care of his grandfather who is dying of Alzheimer's. Each of them is looking for a way to hold onto their loved ones, and they'll travel to unexpected places as their journeys cross paths.

This edition comes with deleted scenes, music video, and trailer.

Synopsis
천상을 넘나드는 로맨스!
꼭 한번 만나고 싶어도 절대 만날 수 없는 사람들
그러나, 간절히 원하면 그곳도 열린다?


사랑하는 아내를 먼저 떠나 보낸 민규
아내가 세상을 떠났다. 그리고, 아내가 마지막까지 꼭 안고 있던 빨간 가방도 사라졌다. 아내를 추억할 수 있는 일기, 수첩, 사진들도 함께 웃음마저도 잃어버렸다. 아내의 어떤 것도 남아 있지 않은 지금 이순간, 허전하기만 하다. 아직도 어딘가에 있을 것만 같은 그녀. 우선은 모든 추억이 담긴 그 빨간 가방을 찾아야만 한다.

암 투병 중인 엄마의 마지막 희망을 찾아나서는 미미
이 세상 단 하나뿐인 엄마는 시한부 판정을 받고 골수기증을 기다리고 있다. 그러던 어느 날, 0.001%의 확률로 골수가 일치하는 사람을 찾는다. 그는 바로 애인을 죽이고 수배 중인 살인용의자. 하지만, 마지막 희망을 버리지 않고 경찰서 출퇴근과 잠복근무도 마다하지 않은 채 그 사람을 찾아 나선다.

평생 가슴에 묻어둔 할아버지의 첫사랑을 만나는 지욱
항상 퍼지는 택시가 항상 불만이다. 모든 것을 잊어버려 할머니마저도 기억 못하는 할아버지도 불만이다. 하지만, 첫사랑 소녀의 이름만큼은 잊지 못하는 할아버지의 믿지 못할 이야기에 안타까운 마음만은 가득하다. 어느 날, 상상도 못한 곳에서 할아버지의 첫사랑을 만나게 되고, 둘의 마지막 만남을 꼭 이뤄주고 싶다.

이들의 간절한 사랑이 마침내 천국의 문을 연다!

Professional Review of "Romantic Heaven (DVD) (First Press Edition) (Korea Version)"

August 18, 2011

Jang Jin, director of wonderfully offbeat films like Guns and Talks, Murder, Take One and more recently The Quiz Show Scandal returns with another equally hard to pigeonhole offering in Romantic Heaven. Although its premise may sound suspiciously sentimental, dealing with a variety of characters and their relationships in both life and the afterlife, the film is very much in line with Jang's previous works, being deliciously oddball and imaginative. As ever, the director assembled a top notch cast, including Kim Su Ro (Death Bell 2), Kim Dong Wook (Take Off), Shim Eun Kyung (Hansel and Gretel), Lim Won Hee (Officer of the Year) and others.

The film basically plays out as three stories about people facing up to the deaths of loved ones, with Mimi (Kim Ji Won) trying to track down a bone marrow donor for her dying mother, and becoming involved in a murder investigation by accident, while a recently bereaved lawyer called Min Gyu (Kim Su Ro) tries to get over the death of his wife, and taxi driver Ji Wook (Kim Dong Wook) attempts to look after his Alzheimers suffering grandfather, while tracing his long lost first love. Slowly but surely, the characters cross paths as their stories come together, as part of a bigger picture which reveals truths about their lives and the fragility of the human condition in general.

It's kind of a shame that Romantic Heaven has such a sappy title and DVD artwork, as there's far more to the film than generic romance and melodrama. Like all of Jang Jin's films, it defies easy categorisation and benefits from a complex, well written script that works on a number of different levels and combines elements of several different genres, including love story, comedy, drama, ghost and even police thriller. Its various stories are expertly intertwined, and none play out quite as expected, with many of Jang's trademark leftfield twists and turns along the way to keep things fun. As usual, he peppers the film with a stream of strange and seemingly random little moments that help to give it a unique and playful feel, his direction fun, polished and well paced throughout.

This having been said, Jang doesn't neglect the emotional aspects of the premise, and the film is essentially an offbeat drama about love and loss, rather than actual romance. The film does a very good job of honestly depicting a variety of different loves and different scenarios, whilst at the same time dealing with more harsh truths of grief and healing. The film is quietly moving in places, avoiding the usual cliches of the genre, and although it does get a little much during the final act when it brings together its narrative threads, it's still a winning mixture of the bitter and the sweet, even if its soundtrack does tend to soar and swell somewhat alarmingly. The characters themselves are well written and their bonds are mostly believable as a result, with Jang bringing them together in a way which though often reliant on coincidence is still engaging. This sense of fate sits well with some of the script's big schemes, and in this respect it's actually quite a brave film, going so far as to show heaven, complete with angels and God himself (played by veteran actor Lee Soon Jae), all depicted with fun and light-hearted touches.

These and other ideas help Romantic Heaven to succeed as a somewhat eccentric, though consistently engaging and very human take on the mysteries of life, death and love. Jang Jin again proves himself one of the most talented and interesting Korean directors, and one who will always be worth watching, no matter which genre(s) he chooses to play in.
