Poongsan has the unenviable – and death-defying – job of delivering messages across the North and South Korean border to separated families. When South Korean government agents ask him to smuggle in In-ok, the lover of a high-ranking North Korean defector, into the South, the damsel and rescuer fall in love instead. —IMDb
Kim Ki-Duk, whether he's writing, producing, or directing, is really hit-or-miss. While a few of his titles rank up there with the best of Korean cinema, his not-so-great works showcase interesting ideas that are ruined by flimsy scripts (which might explain why his "silent" films are always the best). POONGSAN is no different, unfortunately.
