This film provides a stark reminder of the impact of war in peacetime. It is clear from the start that the main protagonist, Kang, has been deeply affected by his previous wartime experiences. However, his fellow soldiers appear to be completely unaware of the danger which he poses. In fact, their extreme lack of awareness of the impact of human acts is a key feature of the film. These soldiers seem to drift through life in an empty-headed kind of way. It is appropriate that, despite the chaotic events which take place, the film ends with a group of soldiers playing football.
Because of the soldiers' ignorance, Kang commits an act which has profound consequences for all concerned. In some ways, this film reminded me of 'R-Point'. However, I preferred this film. It is not an easy film to watch. Some very unpleasant incidents occur. However, it makes for compelling viewing, and the ever present madness lends the film a 'mystical' air which it would not otherwise have.
