Country living doesn't turn out quite like this dysfunctional family had hoped for in this riotous black comedy from director Kim Ji-woon. When a family opens a mountain lodge, their ambitions for establishing a haven of calm are soon dashed by the death of their first guest. The family decides to bury the body to avoid damaging the hotel's reputation but before long they're welcoming more guests ...in the form of a suicidal couple. Burying them seems the obvious course of action until the local council starts work on their long-awaited road through the families makeshift burial ground. Events spiral out of control until eventually one of the fatal guests happen to be a policeman and the full force of the law lands in the Korean countryside.

family opens mountain villa. guests don't come. guests finally show up and start dying. going to police would be bad for business. bodies disposed of in secret. impending work on new road threatens to expose truth. a decent premise for a black comedy but i feel this one doesn't make best use of the situation. slow-paced and lacking comic moments you may reach the end and feel like your time could have been better spent.
