  • The Coast Guard

    2002. South Korea. Written and directed by Kim Ki-Duk. With Dong-Kun Jung, Jeong-hak Kim, Ji-a Park, Hye-jin Yu, Jin Jeong, Gu-taek Kim. The director translates his experiences as a Korean marine into a tense melodrama about a young guard, Kang Han-Cheol, who takes his rough training too much to heart. Anyone entering the South Korean coast after dark is considered an enemy, but when Kang shoots a couple making love on a beach in the demilitarized zone between South and North, he confronts a mix of reactions—the military considers him a hero, while the local villagers see him as a murderer. In Korean; English subtitles. 91 min.
