Just came home after seeing this movie at the night film festival in Copenhagen, and I must say I'm pleasantly surprised. Git is a slow paced movie with gorgeous visuals and little talk, this is nothing new from South Corean movies. (Kim Ki-duk does this as well and with much brilliance, though his movies mostly differ from this by being harsh as hell.) Unlike most other good Corean movies or rather movies in general, this movie is both naive, has a feel good vibe and is good... This reviewer can only think of a handful really good movies with these elements. Anyways if you have good patience, enjoys flicks that slowly grows om you, and don't mind that a few elements are heavily inspired by Kim Ki-duk and my sassy girl then this will be a good choice.
