My review of the film Bin-Jip
I didn't think that Ki-duk Kim could do better then Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring... but with 3-Iron he has surpassed it by quite a bit. This film at times reminds you of a silent movie which makes it all the more amazing. Not a word is spoken between the two main characters but you know exactly what they are thinking because of the great performances by Hyun-kyoon Lee and Seung-yeon Lee.This story of a drifter who breaks into peoples homes and instead of stealing things he helps out the people by doing their laundry and washing dishes. He leaves their places cleaner then when he came in. It may not sound interesting but in the hands of one of the worlds most skilled directors and two great actors it is one of the most fascinating and memorable films ever made.
