From Brushed in Light: Calligraphy in East Asian Cinema by Markus Nornes

  • The brushstrokes have a curious texture, as if the original was written over a plank of wood with a raised grain. This film was made at a moment in the Japanese colonization of the peninsula when han'gul was outlawed. Although the title is always given in Korean today, the original title had to be in Japanese: Ie naki tenshi (家なき天使).
