Jae Su also first finds his 11th nightmare irritating - she ignores him and waves him off as if he were an annoying fly, pinches all his food from the fridge, even takes some of his food vouchers and goes shopping with them, showing little interest towards him, as she smokes, eats all of Jae Su's foodlistens to a sad song on her radio and sleeps her way through the day.
Well, superficially, as that's the first impression you get of her, which as it turns out is absolutely a distorted and wrongful appearance to the inner woman she is. First impressions don't always count. Her pain is far more deeper than her dark eyes and pink stockings and insatiably need for Jae Su's food vouches would suggest.
Actors Keep `11th Mother Afloat
Although most of this film is contained in and around Jae Su's humble living dwellings, and also features various local characters including bumbling and innocent 35 year old man performed by Jeong Min Hwang, who takes a fancy to Miss 11, in her pink stockingsthis is quite a touching and sensitive film, that in its own somnambulist way, shows how two very poor lost souls find love and companionship, when they begin to learn and understand each other; changing personal life drudgery into love and compassion.
At first, motherhood is the last thing on the ladies agenda, but when you eventually learn about her having a serious life threatening illness, and of her being abandoned by her own mother as a child, do the reasons for her lack of care become resolute.
Jae Su soon finds this out, too, after he takes a battering from his irate father, after he finds Jae Su hiding a photo of his blood mother in a picture story book, instead of accepting his new step mother.
As the woman tries to protect Jae Su from his father and getting hit herself, she eventually begins to bond with Jae Su, realizing his needs and dilemmas are equal, if not worse, than her own.

Excellent actor Jeong Min Hwang also pops up here and there, as the bumbling 35 year old a bit like the man he performed in "You Are My Sunshine"living at home with his mum. Jeong Min takes a bit of a rear seat in this film, to his usual driving seat performances in "Black House" and "Happiness", but its another high quality and focused role of JM's, even in its simplicity.
Here Jeong Min becomes the in between with Jae Su and the new woman on the block he takes a shine to. Hye Soo Kim is again on top form, as this quite sickly and punky character you could imagine this woman singing a slow grungy punk song on a stage with a cigarette in her hand - and one of JS's food vouchers in another!
As this film progresses, Jae Su gets more acquainted and friendly with his '11th mother', as he realizes by her bleak past, that life hasn't been too kind to her.
The young actor, Young Chan Kim, performs well here, too, and you feel his quivering and emotional love increase for his new mother, as he gets ever closer and accepting of her within his feelings, especially when she begins to help Jae Su learn to adjust by him losing his actual blood mother. Funnily enough, you never fully consider that Jae Su's 11th mother was a prostitute cuz you never see her bing oneand only view her as a prospective mother.
Jae-su leads a cruel life for an year-old. His father Ryu Seung-ryong is an abusive, gambling and jobless wreck of a guy, so the little boy has learned to survive on his own, cooking or carefully spending his food stamps and running a string of part-time jobs. One day, his father shows up with a woman Kim Hye-su. You didn't tell me you had a kid,'' says the gaudy woman.
But her make-up and wig disappear to reveal a hungry, tired and disheveled woman who eats up all the food in the house when she's not in deep hibernation.
Jae-su seems to have dealt with all sorts of women, but this one is the worst by far. War ensues as the two squabble over a bottle of yogurt and such.
But even enemies join forces when a mutual opponent threatens, and Jae-su and the woman bond together against the violent abuse of Jae-su's father. She has led a rough life as a bargirl. But Jae-su opens up her weary heart, and she learns the meaning of family for the first time in her life.My 11th Mother "Together We Will Live Forever"-Clint Mansell [Fan Video]
