    2007. South Korea. Directed by Kim Ki-Duk. Screenplay by Kim Ki-Duk. With Chen Chang, Jung-woo Ha, Kim Ki-Duk, Ji-a Park Kim. Kim's most recent excursion into hyperrealism follows an attractive young sculptor living on the outskirts of Seoul with her beloved daughter and a husband from whom she is alienated. Upon seeing a television news broadcast about a death row inmate's suicide attempt, she begins visiting the prisoner in jail. Each season, she redecorates the prison visiting room, talks about herself, sings, and even dances for the prisoner—yet he remains stoically silent. Kim produces a transcendent film from this seemingly bizarre narrative. In Korean; English subtitles. 84 min.
