    The audience is subjected to a series of emotional contortions, encouraged to experience them voyeuristically, and then scolded for doing so. The bathetic music Kim favors is profoundly at odds with his chilly attitude toward the characters.

    The film works best as a passionate tale of obsessive love, with two people brought together under harrowing circumstances.

    The most emotionally satisfying pic to date by Korean iconoclast Kim Ki-duk.
