Don't Tell Papa - Raising My Dad

(You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)

This is the most amazing movie I have seen for a long time.

(You need to Login or Register to view media files and links) -- available on R3 DVD and VCD

It is a tear-jerker.  It is a comedy.  It's raunchy.  It has romance.  It has gangsters.  It has drag-queen performers.  But it all fits together.

But mostly it has...
Already (at maybe 10 years old) a major star in my opinion...

Seung-ho Yu  (Yoo Seung Ho)

Can't write more now.
Maybe after I watch it again a few more times in the next few days I will.

If only I could afford to order DVDs online.

I'll have to wait till it pops up on World Movies.  I've seen Yu in 'The Way Home' in which he gave a fine performance.

I'll be interested in reading any more comments you have on this movie.

A couple of high-schoolers meet one night at a club, they end up in a drunken tryst, then go their separate ways.  Never to meet again.  Except...

A year later, in the middle of a high-school class, a baby in a basket is delivered to a student.  It seems the tryst resulted in a baby, and mother has gone to America, and left it with the father.  Who then has to drop out of school to care for the kid.

Eight years later... the guy is working as MC in a sleazy night club.  The kid hangs out backstage with the strippers & drag queens.  He told the kid his mother is dead.  The two are reasonably happy in their life.

But one night she shows up...

That is only the broad outline of this movie.  It certainly misses almost everything in it.  It is absolutely not like the thousand other movies with that plot description!  Really!
