it's very good but the variations in tone are weird and maybe it would be better if Park dialed up the seriousness and resisted the urge to occasionally go for some gags

would've been way more clever if they stopped after the first hour, but think of all the girl-on-girl action we would have missed! (i was p disappointed to see some people here praising some feminist angle... just think of the masochistic joy the Uncle would feel watching this movie. it actually made me feel like a dirty uncle too a few times, hmm)

Loved the first half but I felt the story had pretty much finished about three quarters of the way through. Park's style is always enjoyable for me nevertheless.

I love intricately plotted movies like this. It also has some really stunning cinematography. The thing that really makes it so incredible is that it's one of the most interesting examinations of sexuality I've seen in film. It really gets into the use of sexuality as a vehicle of intimacy versus a tool of manipulation, or some mix of the two. What a film.

Immaculately crafted and often very well plotted, I guess my big gripe with this is that the ending, although so far in the distance, is kind of a predictable given for this sort of story -- a ballsier conclusion of some sort would've at least been more satisfying for me. But I think any fans of cinema and story-telling are going to get behind this one, it feels like an old grand tale told in such a superbly handled way.

This was truly excellent. It’s an expertly crafted story, beautifully presented and performed. It felt a lot like Quentin Tarantino’s best work, actually. I wouldn’t be surprised if an American remake is in the works somewhere now. The cinematography is breathtaking - some of the shots looked like classical paintings. Really great performances from all involved. It’s thrilling, sexy, grotesque, beautiful and something that begs to be seen.

felt like it couldn't decide whether to be a horror film, thriller/drama, erotica, comedy, so it just put in stuff from everything which gave it a real weird awkward tone. maybe it's a korean thing, idk

Park Can-wook did it again. Music, cinematography, acting, directing and the story. And what a story. Movie is cheating viewer. That is the purpose of those quickly shown still images made for. And this film raised the idea in top notch. What a beautiful movie about love and cheating. Who is trusty and who is a dirty rotten scoundrel? We all are.

Slightly overlong, but superb acting (especially from Min-hee Kim), fine writing, brilliant production design, and a tender romance at its core make for a gripping film.

A precisely directed and sumptuous looking film full of mystery and perversity that also packs an emotional punch like few others. Park knows how to stage a scene like an old master, and the labyrinthine narrative that snakes through the claustrophobic atmosphere layers intrigue upon deception until the veil is finally lifted to cleverly reveal where your sympathies should ultimately lie. I've rarely felt so satisfyingly manipulated by a movie.

Beatifully shot, splendidly told story. I think narration of the story from different eyes works well enough to trick the audiences, at least to me. Going back to its Korean origin recovers Park's reputation and clean up the bad taste of his previous, dissapointed movie Stoker.
