Gioan Great ending! But was I the only one expecting the judge to read out the main characters name at the end, for him to be the final one to stand up and say "Here!"?

Trang "This December, keep your smile and your tears". The slogan in the poster alone makes me curious to see this movie and it's worth every minute, every smile and every tears I spends on it. The whole movie is so meaningful and to me the final scene is an piece of art. Every actors has done their best in the movie, Siwan as an idol surprised me with his acting skill. This movie is a excellent movie. In response to Chris, the ending scene is about how supported the attorney is in his case. He was disrespected and looked down on before, but because of his courage to take on a case that everyone scared, people changed their mind about him. It's also about the change in the Korean mind, where the government was dominated before, now the power is in their hands. Sorry for my bad English and hope you understand.

cao In response to Chris: The puzzling ending is indicating how many lawyers were supportive of of the main character. To some extent, you could see how alone the young prosecutor was at that moment and if I were him, I would wonder whether I was doing the right thing. For the purpose of the movie, it shows that at that point (several years after the trial of student activists), South Korea has become something different - that the voice for civil rights has become more common and the voice of the power has been weakened. That is my reading of the ending.

Chris Very powerful movie. It was sad to see human treating each other like this, but in the transformation of the main character from someone just looking to get rich to a passionate advocate and social reformer gave plenty of room for hope. But I didn't understand the final scene (I don't think this is a spoiler) where they were reciting names at the trial. What did that mean? Except for that puzzling ending I really thought this film was great.

Siwan? Looks like Siwan is getting more and more serious with his acting career. I might give this a shot.

Dawn I haven't even see it but I know it's gonna be good.

SuperGirlInLove Siwan! Siwan! Siwan! Fighting! Fighting! Fighting! Love You Oppa! :D
