YesAsia Editorial Description

He breaks into other people's homes, sleeps there and enjoys their food and drink but also helps the owners with things that need fixing...

In 3-iron Jae Hee portrays a jobless bum that gets around by living in houses that have been left empty by their owners. He follows the strong principle of only pleasing his essential needs, i.e., food and lodging and even helps out as a handyman when things need to be repaired. During one of his break-ins he runs into a desperate wife whom he helps to escape from the clutches of her strictly career-minded husband. Soon the husband discovers that his wife is missing and tries to get back what he believes rightly belongs to him.

Kim Ki Kuk, whose movies including The Isle, Birdcage Inn and Bad Guy mostly revolve around the topics of lust and violence, was honored with the Silver Lion at the 61st Venice Film Festival for his superb directing efforts. He excels in offering scenes almost free of any dialogue that live solely from the expressions of the involved artists. In 3-iron's final scenarios for example the leading actress only utters the words "Let's eat" and "I love you". As lead actress Lee Seung Yeon was overshadowed by the scandal press from an earlier movie, the forecast for 3-iron's box-office results was not at all optimistic. However, the film's good reviews as well as the award it harvested in Venice have more than restored Lee's status as actress.

  泰碩(在僖飾演)專愛騎著電單車在每家門戶的鑰匙孔裡貼著傳單,然後溜進那些很久都不撕掉傳單的空房子,吃一點食物,把房子裡破損的電器修理好,甚至替人家把骯髒衣服洗淨,好讓如行屍酒肉的生活沾上一點人氣。這樣的生活維持了一段時間,直至發現遭受丈夫凌虐的善禍(李丞涓飾演),空虛的生活開始起了變化。本已逃離那房子的泰錫忘不了善禍那無助的眼神,於是重返那房子。在那裡他看到善禍正被丈夫毆打,忍無可忍的泰碩用手裡的哥爾夫球狠狠擊打那個男人,然後騎著電單車救出善禍,兩個人並帶著傳單一起尋找空房子。

  眼看泰碩樂此不疲地把房子打掃得乾乾淨淨,並將損壞的傢俱修理好,善禍第一次感受到溫暖。泰碩見善禍的心情一天比一天開朗,不免心生情愫。同為天涯淪落人,兩顆孤獨的心漸漸接近。

  他們住進過一個攝影師的房子,欣賞牆壁上那些美麗的攝影人像;他們住進過一個拳擊手的房子裏,晚上摟抱著一起睡時遇到了突然歸來的拳擊手襲擊……

  直到一天現實打破了平靜 - 他們如常進入一間空房子,可房子裏竟有一具老人的屍體,兩人認真地為老人安葬。可是沒多久老人的兒子回來,二人被拘捕。泰碩被指控殺人、綁架、私闖民居等罪名,善禍亦被迫再次回到丈夫身邊。身在獄中的泰碩沒因此放棄,並密謀出獄後化身隱形人,與善禍和她的丈夫過著三人的同居生活…

  Tae-suk drifts around to find empty houses to stay in, but never steals or ruins anything. One day sneaks into a rich home and meets his destiny - a married woman named Sun-hwa who has been suffering under the torment of her abusive husband. The two feel the pain and loneliness in each other and eventually fall in love. But their happy days come to an end when Tae-suk is imprisoned for trespassing. Sun-hwa is unwillingly brought back to her husband. While in prison, Tae-suk finds a secret way to bring back the joys he and Sun-hwa once had...

Great Director! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I avoided this film for the longest time because the idea of breaking into people's homes just bother me a lot. I'm very glad that I watched it. The film is simple, bizarre and surrealistic at times, but the loneliness, emotional neglects and abuses in society are all too real. The ending and the one sentence commentary is a surprise. It sets Kim Ki Duk apart. I think that he is a great director with substance. I have high respect for him. Both Jae Hee and the very pretty Lee Seung Yeon did an excellent job and they were well suited for this film. The video quality is very good. It's highly recommended!

Finding solace in silence Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
"3-Iron" tells of a battered wife married to a brutal and thoroughly selfish husband and of a seemingly aimless young man who breaks into homes only to live in them, not to steal anything (other than the food he eats). The young man breaks into the battered wife's home and, after he is kind to her, they strike up one of the most unusual friendships in film history. Perhaps afraid to spoil this weird kinship they share with a jarring note, they remain silent with each other.

Eventually they are caught for trespassing in someone's home. The wife is returned to her husband. Will the relationship with the young man now come to an end?

How "3-Iron" answers this question takes on an almost mystical quality that turns the movie into something akin to an allegorical folk tale. Not everything works in this film, but I must give director Kim major kudos for following the audacity of his unique vision, for shying away from what in other hands might have become prurient, and for creating a beautiful tale of two wounded people reaching out to each other.

Very highly recommended.

OK but...... Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
I get it, the movie is taking risks and artistically it is interesting but unless you are going into with this in mind, the entertainment value is not that high. It is quite frustrating that the two main characters do not talk in the entire movie. Which is fine, but there is no explanation as to why. Why are they breaking into people's houses and doing good deeds. Is he a hallucination she has created, it seems to be the case. I felt the movie was a bit slow and a bit boring but that was just me. I realize it has gotten stellar reviews so if you are intrigued by unique and artistic storylines then this one will suit you just fine.

IT'S DIFFERENT Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I DO LIKE JAE HEE'S ACTING. ITS TO TOO HARD TO ACT WITHOUT SAYING A SINGLE WORD...AS IN. MAYBE THAT'S WHY HE WON THE BEST NEW ACTOR. DIFFICULT TO CONVEY A MESSAGE IF YOUR FACIAL EXPRESSION IS NOT GOOD, KUDOS FOR JAE HEE. LOVE THIS MOVIE, DIFFERENT FROM CHUNYANG. MORE MOVIES FOR HIM, PLEASE

thought provoking Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
i bought this video when it came out in 04 and had mixed feeling about it. it was vague at the ending but well done and very beaultiful in the portraying of the charactors feelings. i lent it to a friend and never got it back. i saw it in the foreign movie section and deicided to see it again. this is definately a see again movie. you will get more out of the next time you see it no matter how many times that is. it is open to your own interpretation and imagination which may change how you think of it the next time you see it. it is so complex and expresses so mush without words. i am definately going to buy it again. the actors were perfect for each other and their roles. it is not for everyones taste but if you like it, you will love it.
