South Korea is NOT the most liberal of countries and this movie is NOT the most well ordered of stories but it was interesting.

This is the third Korean movie that I've seen recently and if that's a fair sample, it appears that Korean filmmakers don't put a high value on a coherent story line.

I can't say that I enjoyed any of these films but they were all strange enough and visually interesting enough to keep my attention throughout.

As to this film in particular, the basic storyline is that a failed (straight) businessman is met by a gay drifter who is living among Seoul's homeless. Along the way they meet a wacky prostitute who falls for the drifter but his (unrequited) affection is only for the failed businessman he's adopted.

As with gay characters in most early films these guys are in for an unhappy end but its a strange journey to get us there.

The scenery is wonderful and the movie is touching and funny in spots but don't expect it to be all sweetness and light.
