The World of Us


South Korea / 2016 / 94'
Film / 8+

The film is not only a story about peer violence, but also about a child who cannot integrate into society, about a sensitive girl suffocated by complete solitude.

Children and adults all over the world treat each other cruelly. But if in Korea your school results aren’t good, you might indeed be considered a bad friend. Children might care more about your grades than about your personality. That’s sad. But when I was young, there were other reasons equally cruel. As you see it in the film: when one is from a rich family and one is poor, this makes it more difficult to get along together.
