With a hard-boiled style, the film shows protagonists’ unfortunate destiny in the cycle of psychological and physical brutal violence. Director Park elaborately links the eyes and actions of the silent or unspeakable characters and imbues extraordinary emotions into the margins of the screen. Its style is to capture the various emotions in a frame with all modifications curtailed. Outstanding performances by the cast invisibly bear the creases of mixed emotions, reaching a modern stage liberated from the previous expressive compulsion. [KIM Youngjin]
