A Queer Cinematic masterpiece!!
20 June 2004 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

A Queer cinematic masterpiece. A brooding ,slow burning love story about a disgraced, suicidal bankrupt bondsman, who is helped by a gay, homeless drifter. The two decide to set out together to find a new beginning, as the drifter falls slowly in love with the straight bondsman. This is a gorgeous, tragic love story, teaming with style. The gentle, climax of the love story will have viewers swooning and sighing.

The film is stylistically a cross between Wong Kar Wai's Happy Together and the fractured family story style of Tsai Ming Liang's The River. A Majestic, Breathtaking, and heartwrenchingly tragic screen debut for South Korean helmer In-Shik Kim !!
