The Red Scarf or Operation Air Raid: Red Muffler (빨간 마후라 - Ppalgan mahura) is a 1964 film directed by Shin Sang-ok.[1] After winning top prizes in Directing, Acting and Editing at the Asia-Pacific Film Festival in Taipei, it became the first South Korean film to be released nationally in Japan.[3]

SynopsisEdit

During the Korean war, a group of pilots make daily raids on Pyeongyang despite heavy losses. The woman in love with one of the pilots falls for the pilot who informs her of her previous lover's death.[1]

Critical AppraisalEdit

Reviewing the film as Operation Air Raid: Red Muffler in its 1966 release in Tokyo, Variety praised The Red Scarf for its technical qualities, commenting, "This expertly-filmed motion picture has a finish and gloss to it that one associates mainly with American product. The color is excellent and wide-screen is intelligently used." Though the romantic-triangle plot was said to be "familiar", and the review noticed a similarity to the U.S. The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1954), it was nevertheless praised for its sincerity, which overcame these problems. The film's final scene, in which a strategic North Korean bridge is destroyed, was said to be so realistic it could have been genuine war footage.[3]
