I have to put a warning sign right at the beginning: This movie is not "entertainment" or entertaining to say the least. It is a raw and complex and somewhat absurd psychological trip into human behavior. This movie will not be on many peoples top list (see the voting here on IMDb).
But when I watched it, I knew this was something that would be repelling to/for more people than would be appealing to them, I also knew that it's idea was so out there, that I liked it for the risk it took, in showing something different. While not always easy to watch (far from it) and more likely aims to shock the viewer than anything else, to me it was thought provoking and since I knew it was a Korean movie and while watching it, one name came to my mind -> Kim-Ki Duk.
Well the man behind some "classic" (but also very often disturbing movies), does not direct this one, but he has written the story for it. If you have seen some of his films, I guess you will know if this one is something for you or not. But the warning stays, this is a tough drama and you will most likely not ... like it! You were warned!
