Movie Review: Welcome to Dongmakgol

I love sourcing out a song that I like,be it using soundhound or trying to remember the lyrics and googling it later. This time,I tracked down this song called 'Waltz of Sleigh' by Joe Hisaishi. The song was played in a 2005 movie called:

Welcome to Dongmakgol (웰컴 투 동막골)

I was watching it for 1 minute and found myself hooked onto this 133min long movie on YouTube.
"The story is set in Korea during the Korean War in 1950. Soldiers from both the North and South, as well as an American pilot, find themselves in a secluded village, its residents largely unaware of the outside world, including the war." -Welcome to Dongmakgol Wikipedia
Out of a 5 star review,I would rate this a 4 star movie! The movie isn't about war and its strategy,but more of how the two enemies slowly learn to trust each other in the village after they destroyed the innocent villager's food supply for the entire year. There were few intense moments where you clasp your hands together tightly,wondering what is going to happen next. A brilliant movie,I must say. Daebak!

English subtitles are included. Enjoy!
It was South Korea's official entry for the foreign language film category of the Academy Awards in 2005,and at the time the fourth highest grossing South Korean film of all time (as of December 2012 it ranks as twelfth).
