The only thing that will stand out about this movie is the sex scenes
KineticSeoul21 January 2013
This is a really bad movie that has nothing appealing about it and nothing stands out about it besides the sex scenes. It's basically like watching a soft-core porn that tries hard to integrate a story into it. And the story is just bland. It basically has two stories that come together in a very incoherent manner. One is about a very very submissive husband that gets tortured by his crazy wife for cheating and the girl that he was having an affair with gets involved. That has quite a bit of sex and nudity in it. The second story is about a relationship between a old professor and a girl that is soon to get married. And the old professor and her has a lot of sex for a running time that isn't even an hour long. And it tries to be some sort of independent student film or something with it's black and white cinematography. But it's just bland when it comes to everything else besides the sex scenes. Everyone in this movie is just despicable and not likable and very underdeveloped to the point the audiences will know nothing about them even when the movie is finished. I give it a 2.8 because of few Oh In-Hye scenes although I kinda feel guilty for giving it that score just because of those scenes.

Seeds of greatness drowned in seas of dull

There are a few brief redeeming qualities to this pair of movies. First, Ji-hye Ahn and In-hye Oh ARE hot as hell, and bare their chests, and that alone almost makes it worth it if that's what you're here for. There were several moments of weird surrealism in the first (Red Vacation) and one particular scene of uncomfortable drunkenness in the second (Black Wedding) that almost sold the movie for me, if it hadn't been for all the filler.

Unfortunately, the first film feels like a director's first film, lingering on every shot for no particular reason, just because Criterion movies also lingered with purpose. At least it tried to play up a bit of camp, and it would have been much better if it had more. The second suffered from a lack of direction and nonstop shakycam: every scene is hand-held instead of set on a tripod. Combine with a banal story, that only gets interesting in the last five minutes, and it's really hard to sit through. Almost every moment of both segments felt like a chore just to watch, so little happens with so little meaning.

The video quality is atrocious, even for Amazon video. Not only is it not HD, it's such low quality SD that it looks like a 1CD XviD download from 2003. All of the beautiful scenery in the first segment is utterly spoiled by the low quality. That may not be the director's fault, but this is how many people will watch it, so it's valid. Amazon video is horrible.

Ultimately, whether it's drama, comedy, weirdness, or nudity that you want, you'd be better off getting it elsewhere.
