Generally, I prefer art-films, or films going for a higher level of expression than simply laying out "real life" events. However, I still need to be engaged. This film is full of mock-ups of real characters I might care about if only I knew more. As it is, it's an endurance test.

None of the wonder found in Ki-duk's film The Isle is evident here. I'm having a difficult time being even generous enough to imagine an audience that would enjoy this film at any level. It's an interesting student film perhaps, and good for completists of Ki-duk's work. You know what? I don't even think this one is a renter......
