Top Korean Films of 2011

6. Late Blossom

At first glance, Late Blossom doesn't seem like much. A story of four elderly people as they deal with romance in the late stages of life. The promotional materials really don't help as they make it look insufferably saccharine. Korean audiences shunned the film at first but strong word of mouth soon rewarded it with an audience. Late Blossom is a sweet and wonderful film that boasts stellar performances and beautiful cinematography. Unlike most films, it succeeds in employing melodrama to its advantage and makes you wonder why more films aren't made this way. One of 2011's most pleasant surprises.
