IL MARE (2000) SBS ONE, 1PM, PG, RO­MANCE

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

A ro­mance from Korea that man­ages to make a fairly dodgy premise work through beau­ti­ful sea­side pho­tog­ra­phy, themes of iso­la­tion and a win­ning sense of magic. A woman mov­ing out of a sea­side apart­ment block (Jun Ji-hyun, above) leaves a Christ­mas card for the in­com­ing ten­ant. Mean­while, an ar­chi­tect who has re­cently moved into a new apart­ment build­ing (Lee Jung-jae) re­ceives that card – the only prob­lem is he’s in 1997 while she’s in 1999. On a whim, he replies, and a cor­re­spon­dence de­vel­ops via mys­te­ri­ous means. San­dra Bul­lock and Keanu Reeves did it bet­ter in The Lake House (2006). Also stars Mu-saeng Kim. ★★★✩
