An interesting low-key and pretty light-hearted crime drama that take
a sudden turn into black comedy horror. Well, you never know really
with South Korean films, unique for their twists and their genre switches.
I much preferred the first part of this movie to be honest.
Kim Min-soo (Kim Bum-joon) has lost his job, unbeknown
to his gorgeous girlfriend Jeong Su-jin (Bae Jung-hwa), and he desperately
for a new job but without succeeding. They've fine and pretty graphic
sex (a proud tradition in South Korean films, and probably started in
art movies, to have natural true looking and Non-Hollywood type sex
In a Hollywood movie the heroine always rises from the bed with the
bed-linen fastened, glued, whatever, to her body just above her breasts,
and this after, seemingly, having had hot sex all night. Why this sudden
shyness ? Looks ridiculous and better to skip these "sex"
Hot Su-jin decides to buy a café and trusts her
boyfriend to take out a loan and financially help her. She certainly
won't hang out with him if
he by any chance would get broke, an absurd idea (aaah, that's true
love, ain't it beautiful)?
Min-soo is desperate and starts working in low-payed jobs, as making
chicken sandwiches or driving drunk car-owners home. He also starts
hanging out with Su-Jin's criminal younger brother Yeon-woo (Jeon Beom-soo)
and soon finds out that he has a knack for stealing cars.
Soon the money is flowing in and Min-soo can spend a lot on presents
to Su-jin again, but ... he has found out that he's a knack for killing
The film is presented in widescreen 1.85:1 and with
