It's getting to a stage where I'm perusing South Korean films and watching each and every one I'm able to get my hands on. I've seen a few bad ones but I've seen dozens upon dozens of brilliant ones.
This one starts of pretty simple but then twists and cycles into something complex and riveting. It shows a harsh world that shapes people into what they are and touches you with a background story that makes you want to forgive.
It's very well done.
I would not put it in my top ten of South Korean movies because we are looking at a massive amount scoring 9 and 10 out of 10 but if I had not seen any other Korean movies and watched mainly American Movies this would be close on the top of my list.
