Α film almost nonsensical as it unfolds like a collage of episodes rather than a solid story. However, these episodes are quite entertaining as they combine minor violence with black humor, based on the family's mischievous but naive characters
This Hitchcockean farce puts the dead in deadpan.
Charming little black comedy from Korea
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.
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^
This movie is the inspiration for Takashi Miike's fantastic musical black comedy "THe Happiness of the Katakuris" and if you try to even start to compare the two, you'll see that the Katakuris is overall a hell of a lot better than The Quiet Family, but that in no way means that The Quiet Family is bad at all. The plot in the same in both movies, in that a family with an inn has no costumers, then when they start getting costumers they all die. It's a nice little plot going on. It has some relatively funny moments (like when Kang Ho Song's character is in the hospital and he starts laughing histerically) and when a couple stays in the inn and they only pay for an hour or two to have sex and when the girl is riding the guy, the guy's face is just classic, the best moment of the movie. It has good acting from everyone around. I didn't like it as much as The Katakuris, it's still a fine movie in it's own right.
