  • Summary: Attractive Seh-hee is having problems with her boyfriend, Ji-woo. After two years, their love has entered a period of weariness. Though faithful to his fiancée, Ji-woo eyes other women and, in bed, seems to get excited only at the thought of making love to other partners. Seh-hee can't copeAttractive Seh-hee is having problems with her boyfriend, Ji-woo. After two years, their love has entered a period of weariness. Though faithful to his fiancée, Ji-woo eyes other women and, in bed, seems to get excited only at the thought of making love to other partners. Seh-hee can't cope with the mounting jealousy tainting her life and decides to dramatically change her look - to become a new woman, with whom her boyfriend can again fall in love. She enters a plastic-surgery clinic and then vanishes for six months - long enough for the scars to heal - leaving Ji-woo hurt and confused by her disappearance. Resurfacing as the new waitress at the coffee shop Ji-woo frequents, Seh-hee - now calling herself See-hee - tries to seduce him. But between them stands the spectre of Ji-woo's lost girlfriend, with whom he is still very much in love. Jealousy once again creeps into the shaky existence Seh-hee has artificially crafted. Director Kim's unpredictable genius takes a fashionable issue to extremes in order to probe the dark, jealous core of a relationship gone wrong. (LifeSize Entertainment) Expand

  1. 88
    Haunting and disturbing, Time is the kind of motion picture that gets under your skin and doesn't let go.
  2. 88
    An uncanny and thoroughly creepy nip-yuck nightmare about plastic surgery and identity.
  3. Kim evokes everything from "Seconds" to "Nip/Tuck" here, but his sureness of touch and lack of melodrama make the themes pertinent and vivid. A heartening step up from Kim's previous film, "The Bow."
  4. 75
    It's to the director's credit that despite its characters going off the deep end toward the end of the film, Time maintains its focus, setting up a mind-bending finale.
  5. 75
    Viewers in Gotham will be perplexed, frightened, disgusted - and, mostly, entertained.
  6. Reviewed by: Glenn Kenny

    Time is more than reasonably diverting.
  7. More accessible than some of the filmmaker's more extreme work.
