The Korean project : 형사 (Duelist)

En français
I already talk a bit about " 형사" (Duelist) in a previous post, but I think it really deserve a post on itself. And not only because I'm a 강동원 (姜東元, Kang Dong Won) fan.
What I really want to talk about is the artistic part of the movie.
As most of the Korean movies I have seen, the music is absolutely wonderful.
The costume and the reconstitution of the scene really suit the characters and the actions.
The scene of fight are extremely well realized especially because of the organization of the slow transition between fight and dance which I had seen nowhere before.
There is also a great organization of the colors, and between light and darkness.
The mystery is kept around the name of one of the main characters, that keeps the suspense going on.
The expression of the characters deepest feeling from looks and the part of silence are also the kind of things that help the spectator to became part of the movie.

If you got a chance to see it, don't miss it, relax and enjoy.

There is also some Chinese movies like 英雄(Yīngxióng, Hero), 臥虎藏龍(卧虎藏龙; Wòhǔ Cánglóng, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), 十面埋伏 (shí miàn mái fú, House of Flying Daggers)...., which are made in the 武俠(武侠,wǔxiá) style that I really like.
Duelist has also the advantage of being funny.
