      Audience Member Gotta see this one again. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Koreans are truly masters when it comes to the sentimental. a little less would have been much more. I mean there's no need to spell out in backshots what really happened - the viewer can draw the conclusions with a couple of cleverly recalled sentences. and that would have been much more powerful. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member To quote somebody else's review that initially summarizes what I wanted to say: "A beautiful movie that is simple yet complex at the same time. A tale of friendship, love, and the confusion in between. It takes a couple viewings to understand everything it is worth it". Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I Loved this Movie.....The story of 3 friends told in a very fresh, simple and beautiful way...Not many movies today will manage to make you laugh, leave you surprised and bring tears in your eyes, all in a span of 2 hours...A must watch for anyone who lives, breathes and feels.... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member When it comes to romantic dramas you oftentimes get the feeling: When you know one of them, you know them all. There are only few exceptions that can score with something special about them, but "Lover's Concerto" doesn't fall into this category. Interestingly enough, this doesn't change the fact that the film is actually entertaining after all, will make those cry who are prone to tears, and everyone else it will just give a pleasent, bittersweet evening. That this is the case is clearly thanks to technical realization from director Lee Han, who later on should make movies like "Almost Love" or "My Love", and therefore is one of the few no-one-time-directors of Korea, and also thanks to an impressive cast consisting of several stars, even though most of them were rather nameless faces at that time. But Cha Tae-hyun was already very in demand after his success in "My Sassy Girl" and therefore stands as the actual leading force of the movie. If you can overlook a certain predictability concerning the plot you will get a nice drama with "Lover's Concerto". It's entertaining and oftentimes also sad to watch the relationships between the characters unfold, however, sometimes we also get the feeling that the movie isn't going anywhere. We accompany the three on their numerous "dates", but seldomly the story makes any progress. The polished and colorful pictures can sometimes make up for that, though. Nevertheless, somehow the drama isn't as affecting as it could have been possible. Maybe to blame for that is the somewhat bumpy final spurt of the movie or the fact that we are absolutely aware of how things will end, eventually. A certain predictability is therefore the biggest downside of "Lover's Concerto", but the team of three charming individuals can win us over with their good portrayals instantly and sometimes they can also affect us. A little bit more character elaboration would have been nice and eventually the film would have been more affecting. Yet, even as it is "Lover's Concerto" stands as a good genre entry.
