A prickly itinerant blacksmith and a naive young woman, each traveling alone on a cross-country bus, become travel companions after they're accused of theft in a remote town, detained by police, and then released. With no transportation the blacksmith grudgingly agrees to walk the girl back to her hometown for her father's funeral, but along the way he discovers that the deceased is the man who destroyed his marriage and career 20 years earlier. Wistful without resorting to melodrama or sentimentality, this low-key South Korean drama by writer-director Bae Chang-ho becomes an affecting tale of lost love. In Korean with subtitles. 95 min.
