2004. South Korea. Directed by Kim Ki-Duk. Screenplay by Kim Ki-Duk. With Seung-yeon Lee, Hyun-kyoon Lee, Hyun-ho Kwon, Jeong-ho Choi, Ju-seok Lee, Mi-suk Lee, Sung-hyuk Moon, Jee-ah Park, Jae-yong Jang, Dah-hae Lee. Many of Kim's films are divided into parts, and in 3-Iron the divisions are especially telling. A young man enters people's vacant homes—treating them with great respect and care—only to sneak away when the owners return. The first part of the film concerns his discovery and capture; the second section takes place in prison, where he practices the art of disappearing; and the third is about being present without being seen. In Korean; English subtitles. 90 min.
