Kae-chul is a stranger to the village in the mist. When he arrives in tattered rags at the village entrance with a strange and almost frightening glint in his eyes, it is obvious his presence is unwelcome. On the other side is Su-ok, a young schoolteacher who is ignored and abandoned by her fiancee. When Kae-chul and Su-ok’s paths meet, two unwanted souls find solace in this portrait of unconventional lust.
Dir. Im Kwon-taek, South Korea, 1982. 91 mins. Korean with English subtitles.
