NOT kim ki-duk
12 January 2013 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

horrible direction... bad acting... silly dialogs... there's not much to say about this film, except that it's a disaster from the beginning (except for the first 10 seconds, good shot there) till the end. and this coming from a great fan of kim ki duk's work, the premise is good but the film fails miserably to achieve any sensible result, it just drifts from one attempt to another without getting a good point - logical, aesthetic or anything at all. all "points" made by the film are pretty obvious, and silly, lacking any depth whatsoever. really, there's not much to say besides it is a bad effort to talk about beauty, it even has OK ideas, but they drown in the messy amateur execution (not dreamy/avant-garde/surrealistic, just bad execution).

i mean it, don't waste your time. or if you do, don't relate it to kim ki duk.

2 stars: one for trying to do something somewhat new, plus one for almost being able to say something meaningful about beauty
