Product Description

Death row convict Jang Jin (Chang Chen) attempts to hasten his death sentence by stabbing himself in the neck with a sharpened toothbrush, only to fail miserably, leaving him temporarily mute. The unfortunate incident reaches the national news, catching the attention of housewife Yeon (Park Ji Ah). On the surface, Yeon's life resembles the ideal picture - a good husband (Ha Jung Woo) a stable livelihood. But beneath that shell lies sadness and torment over her husband's extramarital affairs. Jang Jin's story hits close to her heart, leading her to a new path, as she dares to leave her usual life to meet the convict in prison. Ironically, it's inside a cold and dark place where all of life's pleasure and privileges have been stripped away that both Yeon and Jang Jin begin a remarkable healing process. But reality remains stern and cold for the condemned as death penetrates through the iron bars, still demanding for his last breath. Korean with English Subtitles.

While not as stunning as his 3 Iron, one of the best films in 2008, this is nevertheless one of the best films from the Korean new wave of directors such as Kim Ki Duk and Lee Chang-Dong.

The central character is a condemned prisoner who repeatedly attempts suicide, thereby delaying his execution as the authorities have to let him recover so he will be fit for capital punishment.

The heroine is a woman who hears about him on the news and makes a number of surreal visits to him in prison.

How much do you want to breath....to live. A beautiful film with the little that is said being drowned out by the actions of the wife.
