South Korea. 2006. 97 min., 35 mm, in Korean with English subtitles. Directed by Kim Ki-duk. With Ha Jung-woo and Seong Hyeon-ah.
Suitable for 18 years and over.
Kim Ki-duk’s 13th feature questions the most basic foundation of love and human nature. It deals with a woman in doubtful agony over her lover’s love–can they love each other forever? Won’t he get sick of her as time goes by? The movie delicately describes the correlation between time and human relations, and the changes in the relationship itself. To explore the human’s struggle against the passage of time, Kim makes his female character employ the most extreme method–changing her look and her own body through plastic surgery to continuously be loved by the man she adores.
