This is one of the better movies to come from the Korea gangster-comedy genre that currently proliferates Korean cinema and international sections of video stores everywhere.
I find English speaking people have less patience with subtitles than foreign audiences do with our movies, especially for comedies, and while a lot of the original humor is cultural and lost in the translation, there are enough visual jokes to keep most happy here.
The acting is top-notch, and for a cultural insight into Buddhism, it's worth checking out.
