MV

Sypnosis :


He breaks into other people's homes, sleeps there and enjoys their food and drink but also helps the owners with things that need fixing...

In 3-iron Jae Hee portrays a jobless bum that gets around by living in houses that have been left empty by their owners. He follows the strong principle of only pleasing his essential needs, i.e., food and lodging and even helps out as a house-man when things need to be repaired. During one of his break-ins he runs into the desperate wife whom he helps to escape from the clutches of her strictly career-minded husband. Soon the husband discovers that his wife is missing and tries to get back what he believes rightly belongs to him.

Kim Ki-duk, whose movies including The Isle, Birdcage Inn and Bad Guy mostly revolve around the topics of lust and violence, was honored with the Silver Lion at the 61st Venice Film Festival for his superb directing efforts. He excels in offering scenes almost free of any dialogue that live solely from the expressions of the involved artists. In 3-iron's final scenarios for example the leading actress only utters the words "Let's eat" and "I love you". As lead actress Lee Seung-yeon was overshadowed by the scandal press from an earlier movie, the forecast for 3-iron's box-office results was not at all optimistic. However, the film's good reviews as well as the award it harvested in Venice have more than restored Lee's status as actress.

Wow. I can see why this movie got so many accolades. The two leads are mostly silent, yet they say so much with their acting. The ending was very touching. I highly recommend this film.

when i was watching this, i just noticed halfway through that very little dialogue was being exchanged...and mostly it came from the supporting cast...and i was not bored at all.

right from the start it captures your attention...and yeah the ending rocks!

hope to see jae hee in another ground breaking movie again.

Wow! That was an amazing movie!!! I am almost speechless! Although I liked Kim Ki Duk's other movies (Isle, Samaria, Bad Guy, etc.), after seeing this one I better understand why people felt he fell short with them. I wish I could obfuscate myself; that could be a neat talent to have! And the ending was very touching, yet sad too.

this is my first kim ki duk's movie and it left me as speechless as the 2 leads. the final scenes are priceless. i didn't know that adultery could be portrayed in such a beautiful work of art.
