Miracle in Cell No. 7 (2013) South Korea

The miracle lies between the fun and emotion.

Comedy | Drama

Original title:
7 Beonbangui Seonmul (Korean)

Also known as:
'A Gift from Room 7'

      Like tween girls in Japanese anime, tween girls are in Korean live shot movies. There are plenty of movies had seen success on father-tween daughter or similar combo. Those were really cool comedies and some were action-thrillers. This is one of those kinda where it deals a mentally challenged father and his 6 year old daughter. It has been a fun filled movie with often character emotion strikes strongly.

      From the director of 'Champ' who again portrayed childish father and brave daughter relationship in this movie as well. There no much deviation in those two characters, only circumstances changes here. Lee is a mentally challenged of 6 year old mind who got a daughter with same age. He works in a supermarket and earns enough for his little family. They lead a regular smooth life like everyone until  Lee gets arrested for a criminal offense. Now this child got no elders to take care after her father. How this innocent little girl fight for her father is what the movie portrayed in its remaining.

      It was a heartwarming family movie with equally fun and melodrama filled story. Frankly to say I did not like it as much as everybody else around me because the emotions looked a bit fake to me. To me it looked alike 'The Green Mile' with total changed scenario. Why am saying it mean I love emotional themes, it is one of my favourites. The kid performed very well though and the convincing father character. At least you might like it more than me because it's got lots of positive responds from movie goer everywhere. So what you are waiting for, give it a try.
