Movie Info

Mrs. Kang (Mun-hee Na) her husband, Tae-gu (Park In-hwan), and their three adolescent children decide to escape the hustle and bustle of Seoul, South Korea, and open up their own lodge in the countryside. Their plans for peace and quiet, however, quickly go awry as their first guest commits suicide. Worried about the bad publicity the death might bring, they bury the body and pretend nothing happened. But, oddly, each successive guest commits suicide, and the Kangs continue to hide the corpses.

    The Quiet Family, of which many may know Miike's musical remake Happiness Of The Katakuris, focuses on the Kang family and their attempts to run a successful mountain lodge. Individually the family is a strange bunch, but together they are just that...family, bonding when it comes to covering up the untimely deaths of their residents, each family member excelling in their own disposal method. An understatement, in every sense of the word, that makes light of a family's attempts to keep everything together when everything in life seems to be falling apart. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=quiet_family.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/quiet_family.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    Different from the crazy musical Happiness of the Katakuris remake, this one is actually funny. At first it makes you think it's a scary, bizzare movie until to the piont where it just becomes sick repetitive burying work. Dark comedy to the max. ^0^
