South Korean horror. In order to achieve their dream of travelling to Europe, two teenage girls start up their own prostitution business so they can save up the money they need. When one of the girls is killed in a police raid, the other undergoes a lengthy period of penance, and travels with the dead girl's father on a trip in the hope of gaining redemption.

Titillation and religious references. The cover shows a girl apparently wearing a Nun's robes, while another smiles flirtatiously exposing her bare back. Other reviews have described what goes on in the film, if you watch it you'll find they are accurate, but don't expect anyone dressed as a Nun. Two very young schoolgirls dabble in prostitution and half the men in the movie seem to make the case for it being perfectly lovely, while the other half end up outraged and homicidal/suicidal over their involvement. If there are people who think sex with an underage girl is perfectly acceptable, then this film doesn't go far enough to persuade them otherwise.

The characters are interesting, the storyline does not follow a formula and doesn't always go where you would expect. There are extended takes that stretch the timing, interspersed with brief and brutal violence (which is how it should be, I suppose). The story plays out in a slow wind-down which encourages the viewer to try and come up with their own solutions... then it ends. Now you go away and think about it for a bit. But maybe only for a few minutes.

This movie was a bit cliche and silly for the first 30 minutes. There is some serious melodrama to get through, especially when one of the characters dies, I didn't know if I could be bothered watching the rest of it, even though I like the director's other films.

However, there is a character switch about halfway through that takes this film in a much more interesting direction. I love the way the director ends the film. I guess I can't spoil it by writing about it, but it's just the last thing you expect, and it finds a kind of beauty in a lot of quiet moments.

Only watched it as it's available online otherwise would have never come across it frankly. Having seen several strange Japanese and Korean films before, some of the viewers might not be familiar or comfortable with them and shouldn't watch them only to complain with such narrow views - horses for courses man. Not sure i like this film that much but it was ok for a change of scene.

Absolute and total rubbish - no plot, no action, no sensible dialogue - nothing.
