Critic Reviews for Breath

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (4)

  • The cinematography is wonderful, but the plot is too vague. There could be a message here, but it's buried too deep to dig out.

  • [Director Ki-duk] creates some startling images within the curious logic of his tale. It has something to do with inhaling badness and exhaling goodness but those expecting it to make sense shouldn't exactly hold their breath.

  • A typically quirky chamber drama by helmer Kim Ki-duk.

  • Although the results ultimately fall short of Kim Ki-Duk's ambitions, there is more than enough originality and excitement here to keep our interest. [Full review in Spanish]

  • Tiresome even though it only lasts 84 minutes. [Full review in Spanish]

  • "Breath" has its faults, particularly regarding the impact it has as a film, at least in comparison with Kim's previous works, but remains a very interesting movie, as it presents its message through an unusual and somewhat extreme concept.

    Drama about a housewife not loved by her husband settingh of to a prison to decorate for a famous prisoner who has many atempts at suicide. a odd tale at times, and sometimes not saying very much. but enough moments to keep it ticking along.

    With this tender and sensitive film that ought to be felt and experienced, Kim Ki-Duk explores again many of the narrative elements that are also present in his previous films and which he is so fascinated about, such as love, silence, loneliness and the passage of time.

    the cell decorations were beautiful. Park played the psycho, bored wife role all too well. the scene-flipping between the snowman family and the conjugal visit was very demented.

    Not the best film for Korean cinema virgins, but for the initiated it's a beauty.
