The American film industry is very proficient at ruining whatever movie it was they try to remake. Case in point - the movie "The Boat House" starring Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves was a sordid version of the original Korean movie "Il Mare", starring Jeon Ji-Hyun. The original was good enough for a nomination at the Berlin Film Festive; the remake was barely fit for the trash bin.
My brother just recently found out about the remake. You can imagine the dismayed look on his face after I told him. He looked like he wanted to cry.
But it's true though, American remakes of Asian films are...um....not so great. I agree about "Il Mare." I love the original Korean film and was hoping the American remake would at least be a decent movie. Unfortunately, it was the pits. _________________
