Storyline

Arguing about everything is how Ji-na and Sang-min spend most of their time together. Nonetheless, at one time they vowed to overcome their clashing characters and pledged eternal love. But it's a vow that was short-lived, and their "happily ever after" life became an unattainable fantasy. Sang-min's continuing indifference, though unintended, is a constant source of aggravation to Ji-na, and putting up with Sang-min's distasteful attitude has made her a scrawny, tense, violent woman. With their grudges toward one another unaddressed, they opt to end their relationship. Psychological warfare erupts when they disagree on every single issue. What begins as verbal sparring leads to physical conflict... with no end in sight. Written by CJ Entertainment

Offbeat Korean variation on "War of the Roses"
16 May 2009 | by gridoon2020See all my reviews

And I say "variation" because the two main characters here are already divorced, not married, when the main story begins. Other than that, "Venus and Mars" follows the same pattern of a couple whose initial minor misunderstandings and differences of character gradually escalate into an anything-goes physical war. So the material is kind of derivative, but the director tries to make it look as original as possible, mostly by blending in memories and fantasies of the characters along with the "real" narrative. The film is largely a matter of taste, as both characters are neurotic, obsessive and loud, and their feelings for each other go through more swings than the pendulum that the man is desperately searching for. One sequence that doesn't really work is the car chase - it's all too obviously "computerized". The female lead, Tae-hee Kim, is gorgeous to say the least. **1/2 out of 4.
