the quiet family review


“The Quiet Family” is not comical, not humorous, not jolly. At first it makes you think it's a scary, bizzare movie until to the piont where it just becomes sick repetitive burying work. Mina, trying to watch TV, asks for Uncle Kang to switch the circuits back on, inadvertently causing a socket in the storage to burst in flames, triggering the cremation fire prematurely, trapping the parents inside. A South Korean family (dad, mom, uncle, son, and two teen daughters) moves to the woods to open up a lodge in a hiking area. Imagine my surprise, then, when he told me that this film is NOT an original but was first made in South Korea as "The Quiet Family"! A family decides to buy a lodge in a remote hiking area. But their luck gets worse, the bodies start piling up, and the family becomes … It's scary it's comedy it's a really bad day in an inn!! Left to himself, he spends the night forging his room key holder to be sharp enough to stab himself and is found dead the next morning. You're almost there! I do not blame North Korea, envying South Korea, for producing such gems :-). good to see kang-ho song from the host and min-sik choi from oldboy acting together, The Quiet Family, of which many may know Miike's musical remake Happiness Of The Katakuris, focuses on the Kang family and their attempts to run a successful mountain lodge. The storyline: A Korean family bought a lodging hotel for bargain basement prices in a desolated location. It is the story of a family that keeps making the same stupid mistakes and burying them in the woods. It's a wonderfully strange concoction from Takashi Miike--the Japanese director who seems quite adept in many genres. A genuinely impressive start to director Kim Jee-woon's filmmaking career and featuring both Choi Min-sik & Song Kang-ho before their stardom, The Quiet Family is a morbidly humoured horror comedy that comes jam-packed with plenty of thrills & laughs, and remains one of the funniest films to come out of South Korea. Sidney Poitier’s 7 Most Memorable Performances, All Harry Potter Movies Ranked Worst to Best by Tomatometer, Jake Gyllenhaal Will Star in HBO Limited Series. A bit like Hitchcock, this tells the story of a family that takes over an inn deep, deep in the country - only realizing when they get there it was a big mistake. Their first customer commits suicide and the distraught family buries his body to avoid the bad publicity. I found it a waste of time. Soon enough, Mr. Park drops in unannounced to check if his sister-in-law has been terminated as planned, but is in complete shock when he sees Mr. Kang and Mrs. Jeong carrying the corpse of the undercover cop, knowing that he wasn't the hitman. | Rating: 3.5/5 "The Quiet Family" contains none of these elements, but it is almost as delightful with its wicked sense of humor. After an uncertain amount of time later, Uncle Kang, Young-min, Mi-soo, and Mina are preparing to serve dinner, totally unaware of the fire in the storage building. Just below that it reads "Ticket Confirmation#:" followed by a 10-digit number. A pair of friends from town stop by for drinks until one of the men falls for Mi-soo and subsequently attempts to rape her, but she is saved by Young-min, who accidentally ends up pushing the man off a cliff, while his friend is taken captive by the family to prevent him from calling the police. ^0^. .

Firmly directed and delicately balancing both its premise and content with some decent situational comedy, The Quiet Family is close to something to shout about. Meanwhile, Young-min is in the hospital recovering from his concussion and laughing insanely over a news report on the shooting of a North Korean agent wandering through the forest. When Uncle returns from the trip to Seoul, he angers Dae-goo who had hoped to settle Mr. Park's plot without any trouble. In the end, the family which runs a hotel in the woods is threatened by itself. That's because Takashi Miike remade this into "Happiness of the Katakuris," with song and dance sequences, zombies and claymation.
