ANGELIKA’S NOTE

A transient young man breaks into empty homes to partake of the vacationing residents' lives for a few days. Director/Writer Ki-duk Kim's (SPRING, SUMMER, FALL, WINTER… and Spring) Venice Film Festival award winner is a tender, moving romance that was praised by critics. Entertainment Weekly calls it, "stunning! The two main characters never say a word to one another as they break into vacant apartments, two melancholy loners who find a kind of domestic bliss together. Ki-duk Kim makes silence sing."
