INSEPARABLE BROS

★★★

A HEARTWARMING TALE ABOUT DISABILITY AND THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP

KOREAN FILM FESTIVAL IN AUSTRALIA REVIEW
LATEST REVIEWS
By Chris dos Santos
12th September 2019

We all have a friend who's a part of the family - sometimes even closer than we are with our actual siblings. What if you were paralysed from the neck down and your best friend has excellent physical health but has the mental capacity of a child, and is the only person who's there to take care of you? That’s the world we get to experience in ‘Inseparable Bros’.

After spending almost 20 years together, two friends have definitely become family. Se Ha (Shin Ha Kyun) is the brains while Dong Goo (Lee Kwang Soo) is the brawns in their duo. They face many challenges living everyday life, but when they meet Mi Hyun (Lee Som), a swimming instructor at Dong’s local swimming pool, she becomes the first person to see them as human beings and not just their disabilities.

'INSEPERABLE BROS' TRAILER

‘Inseparable Bros’ is such an affecting film, in a similar vein to ‘The Untouchables’. This film is a bit lighter with its themes, and skews more family-friendly. The comedy at times gets a little to hijinks-y, with the score sounding like it would be more at home on a ‘Nickelodeon’ sitcom, but because of the instantly likeable characters and sweet story, the film is a wildly uplifting experience.

This is one of those heartwarming tearjerkers that's sure to be an instant crowd-pleaser.

The performances in this film are incredible. Lee Kwang Soo and Shin Ha Kyun are not disabled in real life, but you can feel that they took the time to be respectful and truthful in their performances; it never feels like an incentive impersonation.

This is one of those heartwarming tearjerkers that's sure to be an instant crowd-pleaser. Disability representation is slowly growing on-screen, and ‘Inseparable Bros’ is another great film that adds more to that conversation, as well as showcasing not only the power of friendships but of disabled friendships.
