Overview

A young man and an actress come to know each other while being treated in a dentist. Under anesthesia, he falls in a love triangle with the actress and dentist like a dream. In the extremity of happiness and misfortune, he experiences the transcendence of time and space and fulfills his lust. At last, after he returns to reality, their affair wails with regret.

Review

The film shows that realist Yu’s auteur tendency is actually multifaceted and rooted in expressionism. A man falls into a trance at the dentist’s while he is under anesthesia. The narrative is his transfiguration of German expressionism and surrealism of the early 20th century. There are full of metaphor and synecdoche but no logical connection. Filled with the excess of image which refuses any fixed meaning, the film shows a grand theater of the absurdity. It is the most avant-garde film in his filmography as well as in the Korean cinema. [KIM Youngjin]
