365 day movie challenge | 6. A Werewolf Boy (2012) ★★★★★

Werewolves are special predators, known for their remarkable persistence. They can survive without food for a long time and mate with just one partner for life.

After moving to the country to cope with illness, city girl Suni befriends a mute boy who appears to have literally been raised by wolves. But violent conflict brews when another man seeks Suni’s attention.

My thoughts; This movie literally broke me. It’s probably the most heart-wrenching Korean film I’ve seen since Heaven’s Postman and I don’t think I’ve ever cried so hard. I’d give it 30 stars if I could, it was completely perfect… and I think I’m just gonna go cry some more now.
