3-Iron (2004) (Korean)

Another great movie from acclaimed director Kim ki duk (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring, The bow and Old boy).
The story is about a young man, who breaks into houses, but unlike a ordinary thief, doesn't steal anything. He eats something out of their fridge, sleeps over, repairs broken items and sometimes even does the laundry. He captures his visits by making pictures of himself in the houses. One day that remarkable life changes when he breaks into a house of a rich couple and meets the woman of that house. She has a bad marriage and is beaten up by her husband all the time, so she decides to join the young man. This eventually makes their bond stronger.
A true Kim ki duk movie who achieves to make movies with as little conversation as possible. His power is to make the interactions between the characters so that you don't even need words to understand what they are doing or feeling. The 3-iron in this movie stands for the fact that the 'young man' loves to play golf, and somewhat uses it as a instrument to do good and bad, just like we notice in the movie "The bow".
Another grasping movie from Kim ki-duk, lets hope we see more of his work in the future.
score 8 out of 10 stars
