Storyline

Three best friends, Ki-tae, Dong-yoon, and Hee-june; they thought their friendship would last forever. A few tiny cracks of distrust start to develop among these best friends.

When Dong-yoon finds out about Ki-tae's behavior toward Hee-june, he tries to stop Ki-tae but fails. Instead, what started out as little doubts, push these three boys into the point of no return.

Worth Watching
18 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a gem of a film. Bleak Night is well worth watching for a wide range of reasons, from the reflective cinematography to the solid acting efforts. Bleak Night is not about a father's quest to uncover the truth about his son . . . it's a fuller exploration of the circumstances that led to the event and the young men involved. There's a unique flavor to the trio in this situation, one that is not usually explored. I won't say more than that--the discovery is part of the reason this film rises above other, more usual treatments of the subject.

I especially enjoyed the central metaphor of the train and the railroad tracks, which I did not find clichéd, but rather core to the film and the relationship between the three young men. Bleak Night has stayed with me days beyond its viewing. If you're even the slightest bit interested in the film, give it a chance. I am certainly glad I did.
