Sydnie Kendall’s review published on Letterboxd:
From the moment it begins, it’s plagued by an eerie... something. It draws you in from the get go and it continues all the way along. It’s filled with lonely characters searching for something. Their lonliness and vivid portraits lends for an extremely haunting film. Whilst it Is filled with so much realism you feel as if you could almost reach out and touch it yourself.
Lee Chang-dong plays with genres in such a way of complex certainty, it’s sudden, calculated shift will shock audiences to their cores.
This modern neo stylised film has it all. Styled with a complex and carefully constructed elligance knotted together with the intention for the audience to be led to multiple interpretations. It marks your memory in a haunting fashion that stays with you. It is one of the most intelligent pieces of filmmaking to date.
