Breath Collector's Edition DVD Review



Synopsis: A prisoner on death row and a woman who's drawn to his plight go through their own spring, summer, fall and winter of love in Breath, a typically quirky chamber drama by helmer Kim Ki-duk. Nominated for the Golden Palm at Cannes, this emotional tour-de-force from the world-renowned Korean auteur will sweep you away with restrained passions painted in seasonal colors. Award winning actor Chen Chang of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Red Cliff and 2046 fame leads leads an excellent cast that includes Jung-Woo (The Chaser, The Fox Family) and Park Ji-a (The Coast Guard).

Review: Breath is a Korean language drama..and a twisted drama at that.  I'm all for dark stories and this one did a surprisingly good job at being poignant.  It centers around rather selfish characters that are made to be sympathetic at times, which is just great storytelling.  This one is very sensual and a bit twisted for most.  You need to be ok with subtitles to enjoy this foreign import, but its well worth your time for something different.

Interest Range: Drama
