Movie Info

Tae-suk (Jae-hee) is a lonely drifter who spends his nights in one empty vacation home after another. However, Tae-suk is not your usual squatter, as the courteous young man always makes sure to show his absent -- and unknowing -- hosts his gratitude by doing small household tasks or making simple improvements before moving on. One day, Tae-suk mistakes a quiet home for an empty one and stumbles across an abused housewife (Lee Seung-yeon) in urgent need of his intervention.

Audience Reviews for 3-Iron

    I cannot get this thing out of my head. Lovely and subtly horrific.

    Taking homage from directors such as Jean-Luc Godard and Louis Malle, Kim Ki Duk creates a silent story of romance and life. Ambitious as it is ambiguous, 3-Iron is a melancholy tale that asks its audience to think differently.

    First of all I m going to try to find out the arabian song he kept playing. A very very intense Movie. It is just so hard to describe this Movie. I think you have to watch it by yourself. The main characters dont talk a word except the last scene one line. If you really pay attention you are going to enjoy and understand, especially because the main characters dont talk a word but if you like "rush rush" you d be bored. An unssual and BEAUTIFULL STORY.

    Proof that you don't need dialog when your characters and their actions are interesting enough. Of course, there is pleasure in talky scenes à la Tarantino, but this Korean film, directed by Kim Ki-Duk, driven by body language and nuance, does so well without them. There are a few plot inconsistencies, but this near-silent drama (which surprisingly enough doesn't shy away from some light comedy) is still effective, thanks in part to Lee Seung-yeon's fierce performance.
