South Korean cinema has really become the top drawer of dramatic cinema in the world. This story of suffering and redemption is of the highest quality in all aspects. the cinematic skills of the director using DV brings that often maligned technology to the screen with a movie that is as visually stunning as anything shot on 35mm. And the acting is totally top drawer. All three of the main actors go through an almost embarrassingly intimate psychological transformation that exemplifies the films message of redemption. This film beautifully contrasts a sad dystopian (and I think accurate) failure of the modernist/Spectacular capitalism and a more eternally personal search for meaning and emotional anchors. Overall brilliant.
