               Death, loss, grief
  Mourning – that is a word that is easily dahergesagt. What is the real pain of the death of a loved one means that we suppress in the cinema only too happy. The South Korean director Lee Chang-dong has now taken on the topic in a remarkable way: precisely and consistently to the pain threshold. His lead actress was awarded in Cannes in 2007 to right the award for best female role. Can there be a comfort when the husband is killed in a car accident? Sustains life new meaning, if the wife moves into the home of the dead in order to realize his dream? These are questions to which there is basically no answer: because they only reflect the helplessness of those who are confronted with the mourners. As in life, react in this film the people upset at the woman who must cope with a loss that is not really cope. False sympathy, good advice, religious activities – so far, so klischeemäßig. Only one there who can endure the pain of others. One who is just there when it is needed. With him, we are drawn into a process of surprising, is so very different from the idea of the days of weeping, which will eventually wash away the pain already. Shin-ae (Jeon Do-yeon) is a young woman who moves with her six year old son Jun from Seoul to the town of Miryang. There, like the piano teacher to start after the death of her husband a new life. This works in the first half hour of the movie surprisingly well. Shin-ae seems to have found its fulfillment by a true desire of her husband makes. He had always talked about how much he wants to return to his hometown. Although the young woman smiled at by the old residents, envied and coated with suspicion. But the amazing momentum with regard to the mourners their task seems nothing can harm. Until one day she is kidnapped and murdered little boy. Now the outer journey to a final power trip into the interior of the pain. Secret Sunshine begins with the arrival in the city Miryang, more precisely with a car break down just before the finish. A gleaming, unusually cold light hangs from the outset of the landscape, as menacing as disastrous. The name of the city, knows the strange woman better than the local bachelor Jong-chan (Song Kang-Ho), in Chinese means something like “hidden sun”. According alienated often do the colors and the light: a bright blue as the sun radiates with power, but somehow indirect, hidden under a very light high cloud cover. Really sunny, it is oddly enough, especially in the worst moments of the story: if the woman delivers the ransom money or if the boy is found dead from a reservoir. , It ultimately remains unclear to right, where the sun hides, after which the mourners 142 minutes long searches. Actually, they could find a support in the easy, boyish Jong-chan, who accompanied her on touching persistent way. But it is necessarily just the state of grief, that one could not help that one, gets to be taken. Which inevitably means the process also takes that shows this quiet film with impressive patience, although he would have done a pretty good lift. Especially in the self-destructive phase of the main character, in which it is approaching the pain threshold, sometimes more than one. (Peter Gutting)
