Ji-yeon, a tollgate ticket girl, is frightened by a mysterious black car, which hands over a bloodstained ticket as a fee at midnight. Her fear deepens after her colleague, Jong-sook, tells her that 12 years earlier a prisoner transport vehicle caused a traffic accident wherein all the prisoners involved died - and some of the corpses disappeared. Since then, a murder has occurred near the tollgate on February 29th, every four years. Soon, odd events become increasingly frequent, usually involving a doppelganger of Ji-yeon. When Jong-sook is killed on the fateful February 29th, Ji-yeon - with the help of two detectives - starts looking into matters herself. Written by
I wanted to like it and I made sure I would! Why? Because the crime touch was lovely, and gave this movie right here a different breeze, something new, something exciting, even tho it was not too hard to figure out, it still took me for a nice ride.
If you want to see it, you shouldn't read too much into it, just let the element of surprise be present. It has some good moments to offer, some thinking to do, great visual parts, therefore it acts like it should do. Don't waste more time seeing if it is a worthy production or not, don't dig too deep or you might ruin it for yourself, take it, watch it and pass it along.
29 February, a more different Asian horror than most, so my thanks go out to the brave people involved in the making of it, for the courage to show something more complex than your typical flick!
