The movie speaks about friendship, and it's builded on a very complicated today's conflict. Plot is fantastic, the dialogues are fun and smart and the acting is great too. Park's aesthetic is well portrayed too. It's quite a simple story, but it means o lot me for the message of being available of making friends, not matter where are we from.

"Joint Security Area" by Yojimbo

When two North Korean soldiers are killed in a shooting incident in the demilitarized zone of the border between the North and South, an independent investigator is called in to prevent it from becoming a full-blown international incident. Without wanting to give too much away, Chan Wook Park's story of unofficial detente is a classy "hands across the border" tale which shows how it is lot harder to make enemies of people than just drawing a line on a map. The politics of the situation almost come in for some ridicule in this warm-hearted but tragic tale that shows how mutual distrust and hate-breeding propaganda can lead to nothing but death and misery for all involved. The investigation itself is actually the least interesting part of the film, coming across as a little dry and contrive...
