Lucky that i watched
15 October 2014 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

A film from this famous Korean Director is very important figure for me. There are many things i want to see which match with myself. Kim ki duk is the only director who actually understand my mind. I should follow him and want to be a director.

Generally, most of his film pertains silent periods. Maybe, he believe that the protagonist should talk less, work hard and put effect on the audiences. He makes his film in a simple way, but go through a complex thoughtful tunnel and in the end we see the light or the soul of his film. Basically, there is a part in this movie about 'death' which really i was searching for. He described it in a easy way. A cinema he made as a director, actor,cinematographer, sound recorder like playing every role is just insurmountable. There are many who try to show himself as drama but in real he is not. But kim ki duk tried to make this drama and real came. When he cried in while watching his own cinema (spring,summer.....) It made me share some tears with him. I love this film a lot. Fabulous...!!!
