Synopsis:
"3-Iron" is an enchanting and ghostly love story set in modern day Korea. Tae-suk (Hee Jae) is a young drifter who enters strangers' houses - and lives - whilst their owners are away. He spends a night or a day in each house, repaying the owner's unwitting hospitality by doing their laundry or small repairs. His life changes when he enters the mansion of a wealthy businessman. Inside, he discovers that he's not alone - Sun-hwa (Seung-yeon Lee), a former model, is quietly crouching inside her bedroom, her face badly bruised. When Sun-hwa's abusive husband (Hyuk-ho Kwon) returns, Tae-suk takes her away and the two begin living a ghostly existence in strangers' empty homes.

Dreamy, poetic but a bit too long. - 3-Iron review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
15/05/2006

3 Iron, is very similar in style to writer-director Kim Ki-duk's previous film 'Spring, Summer, Autumn Winter...And Spring' as it's a film in which the story is told with very little dialogue. It's a beautifully directed and well acted film which reveals a heart breaking story. My only criticism of the film is that it's painfully slow and makes you endure a lot of insignificant scenes before you reach the superb ending. It would have worked unbelievably well as a short film, but as a feature length film it tests your patience. Overall, it's a stunning piece of cinema, but not for the easily bored!
