Kim Ji-woon / ROK, 2010
Korean version / English subtitles / translated into Czech, 141 min
Kim Ji-woon, the master of exquisite genre films such as the Mongolian western The Good the Bad the Weird, the existential gangster movie A Bittersweet Life or the groundbreaking horror A Tale of Two Sisters, once again returns to Filmasia. This time he delivers an original and controversial take on films about serial killers. After his fiancée is murdered, a law enforcer becomes an avenger blinded with hatred. His story is handled as a wild and gruesome thriller filled with grotesque violence. The hero longing for inner satisfaction turns into the same beast as his antagonist.
