by SHIN Sang-ok


A young debt-laden war widow, Lee Suk-hui (Choi Eun-hee) is forced to abandon the small clothes business that earned her a living. Her daughter Kyung-hee comes across a letter written by a certain Kim Sang-gyu to whom Suk-hui recognises she owes money. With a bright future in store, her creditor has a good job in a publishing house and is set to marry his boss’s daughter Ok-jee. With Choi Eun-hee starring as the widow, Dongsimcho explores with renewed delicacy the figure of the lone woman with no economic power and protected by love alone. Everything in her situation and nature seems rule out her acceptance of the values prevailing in the present: the omnipresent intrusion of money, the ambitions of social betterment, a reversal of male/female relations.
