A truly unpredictable film and you watch it transfixed by its singular peregrinations and the fatalistic determination of the monumentally wrong-headed Se-heui.

A mesmerizing film by South Korean director Kim Ki-Duk about cosmetic surgery and the yearning of those who put their faith in external physical changes to their bodies.
