Canola (2016)

Even when life is hard… if someone’s on your side, it’s possible to go on. I’m on your side, so live however you want to. – Gye Choon


“Canola” tells the story of a girl named Hye Ji (Kim Go Eun) who goes missing as a little girl. After 12 years, she’s found and reunited with her grandmother (Youn Yuh Jung) who lives on Jeju Island. The grandma is thrilled to have her granddaughter back in her life and quickly gets acquainted with her, but Hye Ji finds it a bit more difficult to adjust to her new life. (Source: Soompi)

  • If you have had a grandma whom you shared a good bond with, then this movie is gonna take you down the memory lane and would make you miss her!

  • Would I recommend this movie? Absolutely.

My Rating – 8.5/10 (This was such a beautiful and heartfelt movie and I am so glad I finally watched it.)
