Honestly, Kim Ki-Duk must be the most frustrating director I know. I mean, the guy has a pretty good reputation and I keep watching his flicks (I have seen 4 of them by now) but, eventually, none of them succeeded in really blowing me away (I have to admit it, โ€˜Bin-jipโ€™ was pretty good though). I can see that his movies are highly artistic and profound but I can't say I enjoy them. Among his w... read more

The regretted Kim Ki Duk clearly marked South Korean cinema in the 2000s. This "Bow" which looks at itself (no: contemplates itself ...) like a fable at the same time strange and disturbing on old age and the confrontation between modernity and tradition, a fable strewn with pieces sublime poetry and comic-tragic moments. And it is also to a face that "The Bow" owes all its beauty, that of Han Yeo... read more

“The regretted Kim Ki Duk clearly marked South Korean cinema in the 2000s.

This "Bow" which looks at itself (no: contemplates itself ...) like a fable at the same time strange and disturbing on old age and the confrontation between modernity and tradition, a fable strewn with pieces sublime poetry and comic-tragic moments.

And it is also to a face that "The Bow" owes all its beauty, that of Han Yeo-reum, one of the most beautiful seen in Asian cinema, made of innocence, strength and love, a shared love that hesitates between the comfort of traditional wisdom and the promise of new horizon.

Kim Ki Duk achieved a film as elusive and uncluttered as it is magnificent and tormented. The kind of movie we would like to see more often.” read more
