  • Review

    Kyung-min, who is a visually impaired masseur, has feelings for Juwon, an assistant who supports the disabled. To pay her boyfriend’s debt, Juwon reluctantly steals Kyung-min’s guide dog. Alone Together is a film about solitude before it is about poverty. Though it portrays self-destructive survival method of the youth, it has no interest in blaming Juwon. Though she genuinely tries to help the disabled, the malicious structure of destitution forces her to exploit the pain of the weak. The film focuses on the warmth of others that lonely people desperately long for rather than the sad reality of their lives, especially when you compare the dry touch at the beginning with the heavy touch at the end of the film. Even the lonely ambient sound generated by the fridge feels friendly. So, Alone Together, is also about the warmth of contact. [SONG Hyojoung]
