Oddly, 3-Iron is a violent yet serene meditation on the transitory nature of human existence. A work of genuine poetry, it's a cinematic hole in one.

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.

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.

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

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.
