Storyline

South Korea, 1979. Han Kiju is an alcoholic novelist who has never recovered from his year long tour as a volunteer soldier in Vietnam. When he's asked to write a book about the Korean soldiers who fought in Vietnam he's battered by flashbacks that remind him of the brutality and lies that destroyed his innocence. The serialized novel brings him back in contact with a former soldier who served under him, PFC Pyon Chinsu, the one-time company clown driven mad by the violence of the war and who now looks to Han for some sort of emotional rescue.

compelling, dark, masterful
28 October 2001 | by eholSee all my reviews

I almost didn't see this one...I was on a film festival pass, and was trying to bounce back from a weekend of three movies a day. But it was Monday and I went, and I was treated to a gripping psychological drama. Not a dull second in this one, and a darker, grimmer war movie is hard to imagine.
