D: Hyo-jin Kang.
S: Jinyoung Jung, Kwang-gyu Kim, Joon-Hyuk Lee.
Part body-swap comedy, part gangster actioner. On the surface entertaining fluff, below looks at darker subject matter on bullying across society. The ending has such a neat bow, perhaps too neat, yet unusually I'm not complaining.
(The film looks to have changed its name from THE DUDE IN ME to THE MAN INSIDE ME. I’m not convinced either title goes to the premise of a gangster in high school?)
THE WHISTLERS ★★★★☆
D: Corneliu Porumboiu (Police, Adjective; 12:08 East of Bucharest).
S: Vlad Ivanov, Catrinel Marlon, Rodica Lazar.
A gripping exercise in the crime genre, which keeps you guessing until the final smile. Refreshing to have all the characters devoid of innocence and moral superiority.
