Breath (Soom)







Director
- Kim Ki-Duk

Genre - Drama


Two lost souls yearning for a connection find each other in the most unusual circumstances. Waiting in the claws of imminent death, a prisoner receives and gives in to an unexpected visit. Thus begins the story of twisted notion of love found between these broken beings. Kim Ki-Duk as an auteur is always interesting but this latest offering from him doesn't quite enthrall like the rest of his masterful repertoire. The characters here are just too unlikable as people for us to invest our emotions in them.

2.5 STARS!

I agree, so distant from Kim's masterworks. I even gave it *1/2 stars...
