also can't understand, and this goes for many great movies. So for all those who called the movie "boring", you should open up a ?uckin history book (or a bunch)-then watch the movie again. BloodtoBone is like a "Izo" sort of film, where the full effect of the story, characters, and history must be understood. Otherwise, it will definitely be boring/ and or /horrific.
In terms of cinematic presentation & visual representation, the film gets high marks. Fun factor? Depends on your knowledge of Japanese/Korean history. The subtitles are pretty $hitty, and doesn't fully represent the actual duologue.
This film isn't for everyone, and especially those who don't like to understand perspectives which they do not.
