PROGRAM NOTE
Meet your everyday family: an ailing daughter who is a divorced single mom; the youngest son who makes a living as a chauffeur service driver; an eldest son who tries to keep the family from falling apart; and their destitute older parents who are reluctant to ask them for money. Each has their cross to bear, but when greater misfortune falls on them, their burdens become unbearable. With his astute observations of an afflicted Korean family, director Kim Dong-hyun (A Shark and Hello, Stranger) shows clear signs of maturation in his craft surpassing his previous works. Realizing over breakfast that today is his wife셲 birthday and that none of their troubled, grown children are likely to do anything for their mother셲 birthday, the aging father decides to bring home hamburgers for dinner ? a meal his wife never had before. Meanwhile his children are way too much in trouble to remember their mother셲 birthday. The youngest is paralyzed with fear after an accident. Upon the death of the daughter, her ex-husband insists on claiming his son. As the family faces losing a child, the tragedy befallen the family reaches its climax. There are many obstacles to this family셲 happiness. We could say that the so-called villains are the car owner and the sister셲 ex-husband, but really, they are not the problem; rather the problems are the small mistakes, an accidental vicious cycle, a weak body and heart and poor choices. As much as they love one another, fate keeps them apart. With The Dinner, dispassionately portrayed yet heart-wrenching, Kim Donghyun has created a new classic of family melodrama. (NAM Dong-chul)
