Brotherhood Subtitled/Korean (DVD) just £2.99 delivered @ Hmv!

Brothers Jin-Seok (Bin Won) and Jin-Tae (Dong-Kun Jang) come from a family whose unremitting struggle with poverty has led them to place all their hopes in Jin-seok, the younger of the two. His older brother Jin-Tae shines shoes in order to raise money to send him to university, while their mother runs a noodle shop; the patriarch has passed away, leaving the little family to fend for themselves. Their precarious aspirations are shattered by the outbreak of the Korean War, when Jin-Seok is drafted and Jin-Tae joins up as well, in order to work for his brother's release. He has neither the influence nor the financial means to send Jin-Seok back home; his only hope lies in the acceptance of dangerous missions that will earn him the Medal of Honour and his brother's release. Jin-Seok, however, does not understand his brother's intentions, and mistakes his valiant bravery for misplaced patriotism and greedy ambition, until finally and tragically he is confronted by the truth. Upon its release, this moving war drama became the highest-grossing film in Korea.

Great film for a great price. Get past the niceties of the first 10 mins and you've got a superb North V South Korea war flick, moving in places, superb action sequences.

I'll go as far as saying the Korean Saving Private Ryan...
brilliant war movie if you don't mind subtitles
great film a classic often at £3 well worth it
Amazing film and I dont usually go for subtitled films. So well made.
thought this was better than saving ryans privates :)
This is an AMAZING film. I watched it and its got all the elements of an emotional and actionpacked war movie.

Why, can't you read? :?
fantastic film one of the best I have seen in a while, well worth £3. think i purchased this instore for £3 a couple of months a go.
I watched it on Film4 a year or so ago when they were having their Korean movie nights at like 2am. Well worth staying up till 5 watching it.

Well my reason for not liking subtitled films as much is because instead of seeing the action thats going on in the film you're looking at the bottom reading off the script :thumbsup:

You get used to it. I grew up with always having subtitles on just incase I misheard someone or something which is probably why I don't mind subtitles. If you like Saving Private Ryan, I suggest you still give this a go... Much more gory :p
