Salute De Amor (K-drama 2015)

The story follows the romantic relationship between an elderly couple, Sung-Chil (Park Geun-Hyung) and Geum-Nim (Youn Yuh-Jung) and the stories of their family and neighbors. Sung-Chil works at the Jang-Soo Store which is owned by Jang-Soo (Cho Jin-Woong). Sung-Chil is stubborn and has a bad temper, but he changes after meeting Geum-Nim (Youn Yuh-Jung) who runs a flower shop in the neighborhood.

Salute D’Amor tugs my heart unexpectedly. I thought it would tackle only family drama issues, but it was more than that. Since our protagonist is a grandpa and grandma, the acting was amazingly done showing that talent and skills do not matter with age. Cinematography-wise, I like it because it’s filled with beautiful colors and the tone enhances the storytelling of it. Also, the portrayal of the old neighborhood is realistic where you can see the interactions of the people who live there. The plot is simple and funny, but you will never be expecting what is coming. Indeed, it was the most compelling part of the movie-towards the finale. 

Recommended to all family movie lovers out there.

Verdict: 9/10
