This one has corrupted my reality.

Jibeuro - 'The Way Home'

A tale about a mute South Korean grandmother taking care of her grandson for a bit.


The trailer doesn't do the movie justice.


Seven-year-old Sang-woo is left with his grandmother in a remote village while his mother looks for work. Born and raised in the city, Sang-woo quickly comes into conflict with his old-fashioned grandmother and his new rural surroundings. Disrespectful and selfish, Sang-woo lashes out in anger, perceiving that he has been abandoned. He trades his grandmother's only treasure for a video game; he throws his food and he throws tantrums. When Sang-woo's mother finds work and finally returns for him, Sang-woo has become a different boy. Through his grandmother's boundless patience and devotion, he learns to embrace empathy, humility and the importance of family.

—Sujit R. Varma

So this one will probably make my top 10 all time favorites, maybe top 3. I have a new hero and role model to emulate, this wise grandmother. By the end of my life I hope to have a fraction of the strength she possesses.

At the end of the movie I was going to run out and get groceries. I had to sit down for a long while in thought, after it ended, before I could gain enough composure to head out into public.
