telling the feeling of the victim and his family

a movie from reality and let us think about the surroundings. when i watched this movie, i ask myself "does it still happen".

staying in prison for ten years is a big thing. the story doesn't happened to you, but you may experienced local officers's bullying.

i only saw this news in newspaper before. maybe the press use only 20 words to state the fact. i only tried to guess what the victim's families live, but only getting a rough picture.

from this movie i know more about the feeling of the victim and his family. i think this is the most important thing of this movie.

Another Excellent Korean Movie

Strongly Recommended.

One of Korea's finest films with excellent script, direction, and terrific performances by the two main leads. The story is based on a real miscarriage of justice and a lawyer who becomes the attorney and man he was meant to be through his hard work to clear a completely innocent young man. Strongly recommended as still one more entry in the growing cache of great Korean dramas and films from the best filmmakers in the world today. My only caveat is some scenes are graphic, wrenching, and heartbreaking, but they had to be to tell the truth, so steel yourself. Otherwise, the story is inspiring and lifting, and I think viewers will love both leads and the characters they play, so settle in for a great film.

Purely heartbreaking yet beautiful

So if I had to write down everything that I loved about this film I would have to copy-paste the whole script with highlights and notes all over it, complete with thank-you letters to the actors and everyone involved in the making.Now, of course, some parts can be criticized but frankly I loved it too much to even dig for those.

The performances were beyond amazing, that hug scene took my heart and emotions, chopped it into million pieces and spit on it at the end. Absolutely superb. Kang Ha Neul never ceases to amaze me, and Jung Woo was -as always- freaking good.

Be it my love for films and cinematography or movies based on true stories or my undying interest in injustice and corruption of our societies or admiration for good performances or maybe all of these combined made this movie one of my all time favorites for sure

10 / 10

It was awesome

I had no idea about this movie. It kept me really engrossed like what going to happen next. It showed the difficulty faced by the victim and his family when wrongly accused. The acting was superb especially by Kang Ha-neul. He nailed it and now I have become a fan of him and would love to see his awesome acting in other movies. I would really recommend this movie to viewers.

Yet another gem from Korea

I know it for cent percent that south Korean movies have altogether a different flavor. New Trial is yet again a class film with all the shades of emotion. It makes me think that how do Koreans come out so good in film narration. The acting is awesome and the blend of emotion is just perfect. You feel sucked into the film. They really have something so unique and different when presenting a film. I sometimes wonder why no other countries make films like the way Koreans do. I highly recommend this movie and I am sure it will be highly appreciated. Do not assume that it is a court room drama. Just watch it and if you like it give your honest reviews. This way we can show our appreciation to the director, actors and the entire crew members. This will boost their efforts. I did really enjoy the film. The world should learn how movies are made.
