Critic Reviews for Samaritan Girl (Samaria)
The preceding parts are so literal minded, as both puritanical and pornographic illustrations of an obnoxious male fantasy, that they strike me as alternately absurd and hypocritical.
It's hard to say what Kim is driving at here.
Samaritan Girl demeure l'un des films les plus accessibles de la filmographie de Kim Ki-duk grâce à sa mise en scène volontairement simplifiée qui fonctionne à merveille.
[A]rcane and provocative film... cements [Ki-duk Kim's] reputation as one of the most astonishing artists working in cinema today...
just doesn't jibe with any version of reality that I'm aware of
Audience Reviews for Samaritan Girl (Samaria)
Quite an unusual and interesting storyline, one that starts in a direction and ends up in a completely opposite direction. A very watchable film, but also quite easily forgettable.
Ki-duk Kim's movies are magical, Impressive & filled with symbols & metaphors & this one is no exception
Kim Ki Duk film's are such mixed bags, they have some very good moments, then some very retarded and stupid moments that almost makes you forget about the good ones. It seems as if the guy can't decide what to do, a "shock" flick, or some spiritual-esque thing about the human condition and growing up and such. He's a bit like Michael Haneke in the way that his stories and characters stop acting like normal humans would do in the same situations and start behaving in a certain way just fo fill the mechanics of the plot. This one is a bit more focused than other films KKD has made, but i still just can't get it into it. Maybe if he wasn't so worried about shocking and using pointless "symbolism" and was rather focused in writing a story the guy could improve. The directs well his actors, and that's mostly why i'm giving the ammount of stars.
