When high school student So-eun (Kim Ha-neul) accidentally becomes the owner of a ham radio, she begins an airwaves correspondence with In (Yoo Ji-tae), who attends the same high school. The two decide to arrange a meeting under a clock tower, but when they miss each other they realize that they exist 21 years apart: So-eun lives in a politically tumultuous 1979, while In, situated in 2000, is a member of the relatively worry-free Internet generation. Ditto was released in South Korea within a few months of Il Mare, another film to explore the themes of national identity and love across time. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, All Movie Guide

Love, Loss & Sacrifice by talltale March 17, 2005 - 10:06 PM PST

Stick with DITTO. You may be tempted to turn it off after the first few minutes, but--trust me--it gets better. Much better. Remember "Frequency"? Interestingly, this Korean movie improves on that Dennis Quaid/Jim Caviezel male weepie and its characters-from-different-times-get-together-via-ham-radio theme. But this unusual film doesn't turn the time travel connection into some thriller/murder plot; instead, it becomes a sweet and endearing meditation on love, loss and sacrifice--all with a decidedly Asian twist that's reticent and thought provoking. What begins as a kind of Korean after-school special turns into something surprisingly moving--in quite unexpected ways. Lovely, just lovely...
