A mysterious person calls a young man and informs him that his estranged father has died in a country village. The curious son travels to the town to discover what happened. From there out the audience is led on a thrilling and hauntingly atmospheric journey into the history of the father and the truth about his relationship to the threatening and violent locals. The film is 2h40m, long even for Korean standards, but it is the magically haunting and at the same time threatening atmosphere in the film that sustains the audience interest. Let yourself be carried away... Written by

i don't know if you have noticed how good Korean film have been in the past few years. OldBoy, Chaser, i saw the devil change the way i looked at Korean cinema and thrillers in particularly. this one is no different, if not better. everything about it is great: the suspense, music, acting, story buildup, and even... the final scene. yes its a bit long, but worth every second, as you cant get bored with t, its just getting better and better. i had to go back to the movie thread to understand some of the details i missed / or deliberately left out to the viewers to decide... normally i don't like the directors do that to us "poor" viewers, but here i didn't mind really. all good. very good indeed.
