Overview

A battered woman finds her soul mate in a most unusual manner in this drama from Korean filmmaker Kim Ki-Duk. Tae-suk Jae Hee Song is a young drifter who appears to be homeless by inclination as much as necessity; he squats in the homes of strangers while they're away, carefully seeing to it that no damage is done to the property and sometimes performing small household chores as a display of gratitude. One day, Tae-suk sneaks into a house where a number of photos of a beautiful model adorn the walls. After eating, washing up, and doing some minor repairs, Tae-suk discovers he's being watched by the woman of the house, Sun-hwa Lee Seung-yeon, and he soon recognizes her as the model in the photos. However, Tae-suk sees that Sun-hwa has been badly bruised, and suspects she's been the victim of domestic violence. When Tae-suk returns to the home later that evening, his suspicions are confirmed as he sees Sun-hwa being slapped around by her husband, Min-kyo Gweon Hyeok-ho. Tae-suk impulsively bursts into the house, grabs a golf club, and attacks Min-kyo with it; moments later, Tae-suk and Sun-hwa ride away together on his scooter, and she silently joins him in his existence as a squatter, which slowly blossoms into a love affair. Bin-Jip aka 3-Iron received its North American premiere at the 2004 Toronto Film Festival.

    Wow!

    I loved this movie! I watched it with my girlfriend and we both enjoyed every minute of it. Since this movie is silent, my girlfriend and I always tried interpreting what their thoughts were. There was a little humor, violence, and intuitiveness. Of course love was the main theme, however, it was displayed magnificiently through silence. Good movie for couples or if you love Korean films!
