Masquerade (review)
User Rating: 0 (0 votes)

MasqueradeMany years ago, a Korean ruler becomes mysteriously ill, so his leaders find a lowly look-alike to take his place. After some awkward false starts, he starts to relish his role and becomes a even better sovereign. While the story and performances are effective there are either flaws in the narrative or some of the details got lost in the translation. As expected with historical Asian films, the settings and costumes are sumptuous. The Western music is sometimes jarring (there’s even a waltz!). By the end the characters cry more tears than a Hallmark movie. This film isn’t particularly memorable, but if you enjoy this type of import (yes, subtitles), you won’t be bored.
