The power of Image of Kim Ki Duk.

Kim Ki-duk

Allal's own views :

3-Iron is a powerful film that conveys love through silence . I always say that scripts or scenarios can be successful without dialog . Kim Ki Duk was brilliant to handle film directions without apparent dialog.Silence is an art that reveals love and mystery. Korean cinema has certainly a master technician called Kim Ki Duk.( Allal El Alaoui).

Kim Ki-duk was born on December 20, 1960 in Bonghwa (Kyongsang province), South Korea. He studied fine arts in Paris 1990-1992.
In 2004, he received Best Director awards at two different film festivals, for two different films: at the Berlin International Film Festival for Samaritan Girl, and at the Venice Film Festival for 3-Iron.( From Wikipedia)

The film stars Jae Hee as Tae-suk, a loner who drives around on his motorbike delivering takeout menus, which he tapes over peoples' front-door keyholes. He later returns to break into the apartments that haven't removed the menus, presuming them to be empty. He lives in each flat while the owners are away, even washing their clothes and mending broken appliances for them. When he breaks into the house of domestic violence victim Sun-hwa (played by Lee Seung-yeon) the couple begin a strange silent relationship, and she joins him, moving from one flat to another. The most remarkable thing in this movie is the strange kind of relationship develops between a woman and a stranger. Their love has no words. But the silence itself narrates the past of the woman, and the depth of their understanding. In the midst of breaking into houses, the couple get in trouble with the law. Sun-hwa is forced to live with her abusive husband as Tae-suk practices the art of being invisible in jail. After being released from prison, invisible to her husband's eyes, Tae-suk rejoins Sun-hwa in her house.( From Wikipedia.Org)

-Iron (or 빈집 (Bin-jip) meaning Empty Houses in Korean) is a 2004 Korean film from Kim Ki-duk, the director of the acclaimed Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring.
