How long is the road directors walk before reaching their goal For Bae Chang Ho, that road has been full of up and downs. Dominating the box office and receiving wild praise for most of the early and mid 80s with masterpieces like Whale Hunting and Deep Blue Night, the director turned a little more introspective and focused on humanism as time went by. After starring in Lee Myung Se's stunning More Gagman in 1988, Bae slowly turned away from the trends of an ever changing industry to focus more on personal stories. After the flop of 2001's Last Witness, an awkward mix of 90s aesthetics with 80s storytelling, Bae took his time to reflect on what went wrong, and The Road is the fruit of that time spent thinking about life and its many crossroads. Receiving acclaim at many film festivals, The Road tells the story of Tae Seok (Bae Chang Ho), a blacksmith who meets a young woman on his way back from Seoul, reminding him of his wife and the betrayal he suffered thanks to his best friend. Spending some time with the woman, he finally finds the courage to go back where that road started many years earlier, the road which could lead him somewhere else once again. Made for a mere 500 million won, The Road is a return to top form for Bae, reminding of that air of life which made his 80s films so moving and interesting. This edition includes audio commentary with Bae Chang Ho and the theatrical trailer.
