  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Bow

    En fait, le "personnage" central du film est un arc qui permet aussi bien de prédire l'avenir, de servir d'instrument de musique et d'arme dissuasive. On aime bien...

  2. Arrietty's rating of the film The Bow

    it's stunning and it touches some cords deep inside you, so you just feel it. you don't watch it. you feel it.

  3. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Bow

  4. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film The Bow

    Un film dalle grandi pretese, che vuole essere più profondo di quanto non sia in realtà. La totale assenza di dialogo tra i protagonisti, per quanto ogni tanto risulti forzata, viene sopperita da una eccelsa scelta musicale, che accompagna magistralmente ogni espressione, ogni sguardo, ogni emozione. La trama è essenziale, mentre la regia è notevole. Un esercizio tecnico che, tutto sommato, porta a casa la pagnotta.

  5. Işıl Karababa's rating of the film The Bow

  6. bfertelli's rating of the film The Bow

    mikro sapıkların şahı, şah-ı ekber kim-ki duk'a baki selam ile.

  7. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Bow

  8. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film The Bow

    In the ordinary course ,film could have ended with the first abuse experienced by girl at first ten minutes of it.But as a director ,he has a fairytale style language and he doesnt care about logical errors caused by the artificiality.

  9. bmelis's rating of the film The Bow

  10. kokeshi's rating of the film The Bow

    Ricordo che per mesi, dopo la visione di questa pellicola, non facevo altro che ascoltare e riascoltare la colonna sonora. Come si fa a non amare alla follia (o folle lui?) questo regista?

  11. Fernanda Bernal's rating of the film The Bow

    Merveilleuse!!, je sauras pas décrire le mépris que j'ai réussi à ressentir envers le petit vieux... la vie de une fille dans un bateau? qui aurait imaginé?

  12. Gabriele Taddei's rating of the film The Bow

    Ho sempre adorato quando i temi visivi di un'opera sono portati ad un minimalismo e ad un unicità tali da poter riassumere la pellicola con una sola immagine, e di immagini e musicalità vive questa perla

  13. Kelley Dong's rating of the film The Bow

    maybe too drifting for its own good. strange in its desire to be detached like kim's other, more reflective films, with a plot that really can't do so. possibly one of kim ki duk's greater efforts to be more "korean" in his characters and his themes - something about buddhism - but i mean it's not like it mattered in the end

  14. Algitya's rating of the film The Bow

    More than a gesture, everything's talk here include the music.

  15. guilhermef's rating of the film The Bow

    i defy you to stay awake until the end of the most monotonous movie ever made. actually, do yourself a favor and stick to chan-wook park

  16. danliofer's rating of the film The Bow

    Film where only strangers speak...

  17. Emery Snyder's rating of the film The Bow

    Imagine pitching this one to a studio.. It's about a 60 year old man and his 16 year old fiance. The whole film takes place on a boat in the middle of the ocean and oh yeah, the two main character don't speak to each other...... At all. They communicate by shooting arrows at each other.

  18. Josh Tierney's rating of the film The Bow

    Another fun and solid Kim Ki-duk joint where the protagonists remain silent throughout the course of the picture. It also features the most unfortunately schmaltzy soundtrack this side of a Werner Herzog film.

  19. Christopher's rating of the film The Bow

    I've seen almost every Kim Ki-Duk film and this one is by far the worst. I did not enjoy it at all. I actually found myself fast forwarding it. It was extremely cheesy feeling..

  20. Blue K, Custodian of the Cinema's rating of the film The Bow

    Everyone, repeat after me. "Ttong!" That means "shit" in Korean.

  21. Mathieu Boucher's rating of the film The Bow

    A great cinematography highlights this poetic story
