Ask any cine-literate film-goer, critic, blogger or tweeter in the UK about Korean cinema and you'll be greeted with an enthusiastic response.

A wittingly good plot! by sakuragarden

his story is genius! It's lack in dialogue highlights the beautiful acting out of thoughts and emotion. I enjoyed the part where the hero was hiding from the prison guard. It just sheer genius! An innovative way to make an unforgetable film. Our generation needs more of this. I personally hail the writer and director with much admiration for this film. Thank you so much. I hope a lot more follows after you.

Such a cool story and plot 2007-05-05

This film is such a cleverly written story with not much dialogue but very expressive in art form and acting. So unique, it should be released internationally and be recognized in Cannes or the Oscars.
