Unusual idea. Young, college-educated guy hangs flyers on front doors then returns to see which flyers are still there, indicating nobody's home. He picks locks and makes himself at home, leaving each place better than he found it (including repairing things). In one home there's an abused wife sitting out of his view. She joins him in his breaking and entering. Some very nice touches in this one, with a different kind of ending.

What started out as an alright movie, just fell apart after it started getting weird

An unusual but surprisingly rewarding little drama that is involving despite an almost total lack of dialogue. This one is definitely for the cinematic risk-takers. FInal Grade: B

Perhaps the world's first existential golf film. And it's from S Korea, a country where the term 'bunker' conjures up images of the communist north. In truth, it's a love story and it's a ghost story with a bit of golf thrown in. Ki-duk Kim's previous films, Bad Guy and Samaritan Girl similarly were non-genre pieces but neither prepared you for this.
The central character, Sun Hwa, has an unusual hobby: he breaks into people's homes and rearranges the furniture. On one such incursion the occupiers return, and he's given cause to reveal himself when the husband starts abusing his wife. The story develops from there and is unaided by dialogue, so don't worry about subtitles. It's a beautiful film both funny and sad, the very definition of a 'mood' piece.
