This week's treat from Sarathi Studios is a romantic Korean drama by Kim Ki-Duk titled 3-Iron, which will be screened on 21st August. The screening will begin at 6:30pm.
Kim Ki-Duk is the director, producer and screenplay writer of 3-Iron. The lead cast consists of Lee Seung-Yeon and Jae Hee, along with Kwon Hyuk-Ho and Joo Jin-Mo in supporting roles. The film is 1 hour and 35 minutes long.
The plot revolves around the relationship between a young drifter and a battered housewife. The film is notable for the lack of dialogue between its two main characters. Tae-Suk (Jae Hee) is a loner who drives around on his motorbike delivering takeout menus, which he tapes over peoples' front-door keyholes. He later returns to break into the apartments that haven't removed the menus, presuming them to be empty. He lives in each flat while the owners are away, even washing their clothes and mending broken appliances for them.
When he breaks into a large home, he is unaware that he is being watched by battered housewife Sun-Wha (Lee Seung-Yeon). Tae-suk leaves after catching her eye, but returns soon after. He witnesses Sun-Wha's husband abusing her, and proceeds to catch his attention, and later hits him too. Tae-suk and Sun-Wha leave together, and begin a silent relationship, moving from one flat to another. Later, when Tae-suk is framed for a murder, even prison walls can't keep them apart.
The film is named so because of its extensive use of golf. You could also watch out for Tae-Suk's mysterious martial art that prevents him from being seen by others - he hides behind people in the 180 degrees that the eye cannot see. This part opens up not only the last act, but also the entire movie, to speculation about its reality.
