Evanescence is the movie's most distinguishing characteristic.

3-Iron matches apparent simplicity to a beguiling inscrutability and ends with the most beautifully bizarre menage a trois to have been seen since Takashi Miike's Gozu.

Beautifully staged an performed, a sly wit with the camera work, an almost silent presentation of a lovely story.

It's a tribute to Kim's masterful mysteriousness that you are never quite sure what your exact reaction should be, as well as the fact that it's all highly intriguing rather than inscrutably annoying.

Lo mejor de esta fascinante y extraña película es todo lo que dispara en el espectador en su intento por encontrarle un significado.

3-Iron est un autre bel ajout à l'univers plus serein de Kim Ki-duk.

What happens is less important than how it's happening, a film of subtle moments, with feelings and thoughts conveyed almost wordlessly, 3-Iron is both artificial and profound.

An unusual original story that's rooted in a Buddhist parable.

A lovely little movie that nonetheless feels slight even with its metaphysical subject.

An engrossing, if demandingly obscure, watch.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

A poignant love story that seems to exist off the map of the real world, living in the blank spaces vacated by others.

If the snail's pace doesn't send you to sleep, you'll be rewarded with a tender and unusual love story.

What is so engaging about the film is the way its director, Ki-duk Kim, manages to keep our interest intensely focused on the couple.

Kim creates an offbeat (and almost entirely wordless) romance between misfits and finds beauty and tranquility in this strange form of domestic bliss.

You realize that you've been more hypnotized than intellectually involved. The movie is nothing like a think piece, just a clever diversion, like a glossy action movie.
