Kim Ki Duk is an absolute genius, no matter what people say about his work and its content. Each and every single one of his films are utter class, this one especially left me completely in awe, it was so incredible that i actually felt like crying.
I feel really sorry for people who don't understand or choose to understand KKD's work. They are sorely missing out.
As an owner of 95% of his filmography, I recommend 3IRON (Bin Jip) as one of his very very best.
The use of silence whereby actions speak louder than words transcends any language barrier, background or culture. watch this film right now!
