That mournful ’someone’ who has lost her father and is living with her aunt is the secret character who will revitalize the life of the mother and the daughter.
Moonlit Winter is the second feature film of the talented director, LIM Daehyung in his previous film, Merry Christmas, Mr. Mo. Just as he dealt with the issue of death in his previous flm with a humorous yet sorrowful atmosphere, the director also expresses the loss and restoration of love in a simple, loving and warm manner again. Remarkable acting by actors who are old and new or at home and abroad, and the exotic atmosphere of the landscape, all of these are in harmony, encouraging the movie’s attraction and gentleness. It was selected by the Busan International Film Festival 2018 Fund for the feature film production support.
