Set during the early Joseon Dynasty, the film begins with the queen mother and former concubine (Park Ji-young) in a precarious position of having no blood ties to the childless king (Jung Chan). She schemes to replace him on the throne with his stepbrother and her submissive young son Seong-won (Kim Dong-wook). Indifferent to his mother’s plans, the timid prince falls in love at first sight with Hwa-yeon (Jo Yeo-jeong), an aristocrat’s daughter, who has already found love with Kwon-yoo (Kim Min-joon), a commoner. The king is eventually poisoned to death by the queen mother, who is desperate to be in power. Hwa-yeon is moved to a closely watched humble residence, with the queen mother planning to assassinate Hwa-yeon and her son to secure her position in the palace.

Back in those days we've really enjoyed it for few years, (remember Danny McGill, he was a cool VJ.) Slowly MTV India took over. For a starter, they did a very good job for a few years. Then something happened, they broke in to two parts & some of them formed Channel V. They too did well at the beginning, I don't know if that channel now exists or not! Anyways I remembered two unusual VJs from the V, Vinay Pathak & Ranvir Shorey. Together they also hosted a show called Football Crazy. I wonder if they were as good as Danny or not, but they sure are good actors now. I look forward to see what they're doin'. Recently I saw two great Indian films "Dasvidaniya" and "Oh, My God" Both of those are very different from each other, both of them are very funny and well scripted. The lead player of both the films is surprisingly The Sloppy Vinay Pathak! Both the directors came up with their debut film. I don't know where the hell they came from but they sure know how tell a good story which is very funny & at the same time has a moral. I know you guys all watch many Hindi films but I recommend everyone not to miss these two...

C'est l'un de mes films prfrs parce que j'ai aim la faon dont le point de vue de l'histoire a chang. commence, je pensais que le film allait tre un film mignon et romantique, mais comme le film avanait, mes penses chang. Je pensais Anglique et Loc avaient une relation mignon et j'ai pens Loic trompait sa femme, Racheal. Attention! Spoiler Alert! Lorsque le point de vue de ce qui se passait chang, j'ai t trs choqu de dcouvrir le point de vue de ce qui s'est pass de Loic. J'tais trs choqu parce que la perspective de Loic tait trs diffrente du point de vue Angelique. La fin tait le plus effrayant, car elle n'avait pas pris un des mdicaments, donc il voulait dire qu'elle n'a pas t retrouv. Je donnerais ce film 4 toiles parce que j'ai vraiment aim, et je le recommande tout le monde !-Kristen

Bill B (ag) wrote: Another great Jack Hill Exploitation film, this time about a girl gang who rise to the occasion when their men are proven to be fairly ineffectual at holding down their turf, this one is very watchable and filled with memorable characters from start to finish.Very well worth a rental, and Tarantino-approved for those of you who would care about that sort of thing.

Aldo M (ag) wrote: This film shows its age. And, unfortunately, it is marred by the political and philosophical point of view of Buuel, who was a die hard communist (during Stalin age). Point of view that has been overcome by history: because time is a gentleman. My second attempt with Buuel, and, definitely, the last one. It seems that I can't enjoy this director.
Marla (ru) wrote: A heart-warming story about a woman who sacrifices everything to send her daughter to Spain. During this time she leads her daughter to believe she is a big mover and shaker in New York City when in actuallity she sells apples in the streets of New York. Lets just say things take a comedic, Capraesque turn of events. A satisfying film. Capra remade this film in 1961 with Bette Davis in the Lead. While I think the remake is very good, I much prefer the original.
Joshua L (ca) wrote: Now here's an excellently well made movie with great acting, great soundtrack and a greatly told story. Here's a movie that should've been nominated for Best picture instead of movies like The Big Short or The Martian. This movie deserved a nomination easily but was sadly overlooked for sure. You don't even have to like Chess to enjoy this movie.
