The animation is based on the fairy tale of the same name with the local sale over 100,000 copies by Jeong Chae-bong, a writer well known for his innocent and heart-stirring tales. It is a story about two orphans, Gil-son, a five-year-old boy, and his blind sister Gam-i who are brought up by a charitable monk at a secluded temple in Mt. Seorak. Gil-son, a mischievous boy, is the guide for this hour-long travel in search of innocence. Having a pure heart, he befriends all living things and communicates with clouds, birds and flowers. One snowy day, however...


The film won the Best Feature Film award at the 2004 Annecy International Animation Film Festival.

This is my first review so be kind, please.:p

I can't understand why this anime has not a review yet. (Maybe because it is not a Japanese production). Anyway, this is one of the most impressive anime I've ever seen. The art and the characters are pretty good, the story is fantastic and full of sentimental feelings. I think after you see the movie you'll have an idea about what Buddhism really is.

It tells the story of two orphans based on a legend in which a five-year-old boy sacrificed himself to open his blinded sister's eyes. I don't really want to spoil so read more

After watching this film and finding myself being filled with such heartfelt emotions, I am assured to say that I truly adore this movie. Oseam is merely a sentimental and touching story of a brother and sister's love for one another and in demonstrating this aspect, shows how one's affections can surpass many boundaries. The simplicity that is shown here as well as the spiritual themes that are conveyed makes for a beautiful and one of a kind piece about those that we care for the most.

The story follows the lines of a Korean fairy tale of the same name and depicts the lives of read more

Story: The story itself is very simple but it reflects Buddhism very well in that manner. It is simple yet moving. The story is slow paced in a very beautiful way. Not everyone will enjoy this story, but those who do will love it.

Art: I thought the art was very beautiful, especially the scenery. A lot of detail and care was put into the art. The colors are bright and vibrant. The characters are simple but nice. I thought the animation of the lips was done very well.

Sound: I'm not a big sound person and the music of this anime was very subtle. Again, read more

I don’t know why this movie hasn't been popular yet, maybe because it’s Korean or something like that, nevermind that let’s get into this review this will be as brief as this piece of film was when i watched it. It was over so fast i thought i wrapped through time or something like that.
The story follows two orphans whom has been sheltered by monks the girl is blind and the boy is bratty as hell, we follow their story as they live their lives in a Buddhist temple, and share their emotions. Animation wise this was decently animated, the backgrounds were brilliantly good and read more
