Audience Reviews for Bi-mong (Dream)


It is a curious thing that the handsome Joe Odagiri speaks Japanese throughout the whole film while all the other characters speak Korean and yet everyone understands each other in this mystical Jungian reflection on the Buddhist Yin/Yang attraction.

I love Ki-Duk Kim's films (3-IRON, SPRING, SUMMER, FALL, WINTER... AND SPRING) and this one hits all the right buttons; off-centre story (man has dreams about his lost love, girl acts them out in her sleep), slow pace, small number of enigmatic characters, atmospheric ending. The scenes where the man tries to avoid falling to sleep were a bit yucky though..

Kim Ki-duk showcases another excellent example of his own brand of cinematic poetry. The story and characters are there to simply there to represent the themes of the piece so don't go looking for logical reasons behind peoples actions. It's a mediation on dreams and love and also a slight look into the desires of the subconscious. The imagery is magnificent, especially the dream sequences, and the ending is classic haunting Kim. More dialogue than usual and slightly stranger, this is a small evolution for Kim.
