카운터스 (ka-un-teo-seu)

Directed by Lee Il-ha (이일하)

99min | Release date in South Korea :

Synopsis
"Kill every Korean, good or bad" shouts a junior high school student. Such hate speech is frighteningly prevalent in Japan, with frequent demonstrations staged by extreme-right racist groups, met with apathy from the government.

Yet former yakuza Takahashi and his cohorts meet hate with hate, and are determined to stop the demoralizing ultranationalists by any means necessary, most often ending in brute force. Proving yet again that xenophobia knows no borders the filmmakers unflinchingly probe both sides in this striking cinematic outcry.
