Better to have loved and lost?
"The Old Potter" turns a simple tale of love and loss into a memorably melodramatic tragedy. The elderly Song (Hwang Hae) is an exacting potter who leads a solitary existence. One wintry day he stumbles upon the unconscious and frostbitten body of a beautiful young woman (Yoon Jeong Hee). Song brings the woman back to his rustic home, where he nurses her back to health. As Song rubs warmth back into the unclad body of the unconscious woman, he takes much more than a clinical interest in the experience. When the woman recovers, we learn that she is Ok Su and that she became lost in the woods while searching for the man to whom she was betrothed.
The film then skips ahead seven years. Old Song and Ok Su are married and have an adorable little boy. Song almost can't believe his good fortune, that in his dotage he should be blessed with a lovely bride and happy child. Feeling confident of his future, Song hires an assistant, a handsome young man named Seok Hyun (Nam Koong Won). Unbeknownst to Song, Seok Hyun happens to be Ok Su's former boyfriend. Seok Hyun has spent the last seven years hunting for Ok Su and now tries to persuade her to return to him. Ok Su is torn between her duty to the old man and her yearning for the virility of her long-lost lover. The consequences of her fateful decision prove profound.
The story is told in classic melodrama form with emotions played to the hilt. Director Choi Ha Won chose to highlight the sensual side of the tale, an aspect which apparently is absent in Hwang Soon Won's original short story. From a dramatic perspective, this decision makes sense; it heightens the film's tragic aspect by giving us a protagonist whose reckless love of physical beauty proves to be his downfall. The image quality of this Korean Film Archives release is flawed, but quite watchable. Highly recommended.
