A Girl at My Door
aka Dohee-ya
First screened in October 2014
Director: July Jung. Cast: Doona Bae, Jang Hie-jin, Kim Sae-ron, Mun Seong-kun, Song Sae-byeok. Screenplay: July Jung.

Twitter Capsule: Crude plotting and acting corrode promising lesbian-antihero potential. Unsteady takes on its characters.

VOR:   Distinctive from other recent Korean films in some ways, of a piece in others, but not really invigorating in any. Mood too flat and plotting too jumbled to really provoke.
