Mak Dong has just been released from the army and is on his way home when he helps out a woman on the train. She calls him, because she collected his luggage and they agree to meet. It turns out she is a mobster’s girlfriend and she gets him a job with the gang…
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
as lee chang-dong's first film, what i can take from it is his artistic vision for the future - women with dreams thrown into a man's world, men torn apart by a national history...but being his first film, it's pretty dry and lacks the silent, focused emotional intensity of his later films, and the whole gang drama makes the plot a little messy.
"Green fish" nos presenta a un personaje del cual parece que nunca terminamos por comprender. Su camino parece haberse construído en base a las circunstancias. Su suerte (o mala suerte) se la hizo sin hacer mucho. Hay además algo que provoca este personaje. Una simpatía natural a pesar de su torpeza. Es benevolente. Chang-Dong genera brotes atractivos. Cámaras lentas, una familia dramática, muerte en la ventana.
