Windstruck is the story of an obnoxious female police officer and a physics teacher. Their stories got tangled when she wrongly accused him of stealing another woman’s bag. Their story continued until they were assigned to be partners to look for kids who are doing bad stuff on the street. When they were supposedly following a drug dealer, she put him and her in handcuffs just so he won’t go away. And that’s where their love story starts.
The movie is bittersweet just because they don’t get to be with each other in the end. The movie tells us about the love that never leaves us. It’s really hard to move on from a love that ends unexpectedly.
The movie had a good feel. The dialogue (based on subtitles) are just conversational. They don’t give you the feeling that you’re being lectured on. The acting is just natural too. That’s one thing I like about Korean media. The actors don’t mind looking ugly on film.
It’s a nice start to my effort in discovering Asian cinema.
