As a previous user said , there is not too many movies about pickpockets. But for my case this is not the most important thing. This movie shows a very strange story where each character is related to another one in a city where all seems great but only in appearance. The story has this particularity to give you a show where the main character , a police officer know how to fight crime but is unable to accept it in a way that it is presented toward him. There are fights , there is a plot but no super hero or happy end , only a character who has to accept the reality and to struggle against his past which will influence his future. The main plot is centered on pickpocket ; and this idea gives the scenario credibility. Add to this movie a very good soundtrack , and a very good acting , and even if you do not like Asiatic movies , this one has to be seen like these rare Korean movies which are exported in Europe or in the USA some years laters. Very cool movie.
