Treeless Mountain

USA/Korea, 2008

Jin, a 6 year old girl, lives in a tiny apartment in Seoul with her mother and Bin, her baby sister. When the mother decides to go look for her husband, the father of her children, she leaves them for the summer with their alcoholic aunt. The mother leaves them a piggy bank and promises that when it is full she will return. But the piggy bank is packed and she does not return, and the girls are sent to a farm outside town. Korean director So Yong Kim’s second film is told gently and with heartbreaking restraint through the eyes of the two little girls. With the aid of dynamic photography and wonderful naturalistic acting, Treeless Mountain is an authentic, shaking and unique cinematic performance
