❋ “In a nutshell it’s a pretty gripping story told in way that can get a little convoluted and confusing at times but the strong characterisation and excellent acting does keep you compelled from start to finish.”
❋ “This film is an entertaining interpretation of a legendary story, not a historical re-enactment and the costumes, dramatic classical score, ambitious narrative are certainly bold but, it seems, the ambition behind this film, to captivate audiences, is bolder.
Gabi is a love story, a mystery, a political drama and a period piece, showing the power of relationships, aromas, ties and the force of ambition. Not perfect by any means, but if not taken too seriously this film is enjoyment with a capital ‘E’ and offers a striking cinematic experience that will no doubt provoke audiences to seek out what else Korean Cinema has to offer.”
