3.5 out of 10 3 Iron
Eamonn from Meath, 12 Feb 2008
This was certainly different, but should be interesting to anyone who likes korean cimema with some potential fantasy in the plot. It explores a life of a korean man who breaks into homes, chills out for a while and in doing so meets a lovely model who has some problems. Its essentially a love story that has korean golf as a subtext (3 iron), and it has the unusual distinction of having the whole movie pass without the main leads speaking to each other!!!

5 out of 10 3IRON
Dóirín from Galway, 12 Feb 2008
I loved this movie! It was remarkable that the female character did not speak one word during its entirety, but words were not needed - she was one amazing actress. Her abuse in the hands of her husband was palatable and at no time did I feel I had any sympathy for him. The male lead was fantastic and his retribution for his lover's abuse fantastically executed. My favourite movie from the selection I've received.

3.5 out of 10 Fruity Chinese Cinema
Tony from Dublin, 02 May 2007
Avoid this one if you don't like things a bit different, although her nibs enjoyed it, and she's normally straight down the middle. Characters are mysterious and given little background, and while the film starts out as disturbing as it is humourous, it develops into pure fantasy. Nicely made. Be patient with it.

4 out of 10 Beautifully made and well-acted
Maggie from Mayo, 30 Apr 2008
A beautifully made and well-acted film. While there was almost no dialogue, the acting was such that I was drawn into all three of the main characters. An interesting and unusual story that made a real impact. A very different treatment of a love story, and a film that I became more engrossed in as it progressed.

Superb ,thought provoking ,moving Korean drama. Plot manages to be both intricate and clear.This is an emotional and challenging film- An original and alternative take on the romance genre. Issues such as domestic violences ,sexuality and crininal behavoir are sensitivly handled.highly recommended!!!

What's it about....
A transient young man spends his days breaking into people's empty homes. But instead of robbing them, he simply partakes of the vacationing residents' lives for a few days. He tastes a little of their food and poses for pictures next to valued possessions but, in return, he also fixes any household items if they're broken and cleans up any laundry or mess left around.
