YesAsia Editorial Description

Kim Ki Duk's controversial 2000 film The Isle explores the agony and possible destruction brought by desire and love. Set in a remote fishing village, the film follows mute protagonist Hee Jin, who sells her body at night for a living. One day, a cop who is running from his crimes comes to the village and the two embark on an addictive, hooked relationship. The Isle stunned audiences not only with its notoriously gruesome scenes but also its bewitching cinematography, bringing isolation, dream state and the unknown onto the screen.

  An isolated dumb girl lives by selling food to the fishermen during the daytime and her body at night. One day, she rescues an ex-cop who wants to commit suicide. It brings about their delicate feelings toward each other and sex with her becomes a kind of narcotic for the relief of his pains. Eventually they get decoyed to each other's baits like fish and drive to unexpected catastrophe......

this movie is not very good Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
wow i'm surprised at yesasia for not letting me comment as a 1.. so i have to put a 10 for this movie... but it is only a 1. I can't post up a 1 rating... Anyways this movie sucks soooo bad!! i wish buying this movie. This movie makes me want to throw up. It is just plain old nasty... The story is pretty basic. The girl is a prostitute.. who takes revenge on the people that hired her and doesn't give her enough money.. What the hell?? if you're a hooker, you're prone to get treated like that... Later on, she met this cop and they had sex together a few times... He has problems.. later on he kills her... anyways the movie is fill with nasty fish plus hook scenes.. .DON'T BUY this movie. it is nasty...

I did not understand this movie!! Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
What was this movie about, anyway? I kept watching, hoping to understand, and I was left going "Huh?" I don't know if something was lost in translation or what. The characters names were never mentioned, you never find out who they are, why they are doing the things they do, or anything! The ending was beyond bizarre. I do think it was well acted and well made, but it's hard to like a movie you just can't understand.

If you can stomach it Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Most people are replused when they watch this movie. There are some rather.. graphic scenes. For example the man attempts to swallow a bunch of fish hooks that are tied to the pole... Throughout the movie there's a strange, unspoken relationship between the man and the woman. There's definately a deeper meaning to the movie. So if you feel like thinking about the deeper meaning of their relationship and you can stomach watching it.. then I would recommend this movie for you.

no stupid jokes!, the way i like it Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I saw this movie and I loved it. This film is unlike any other I have seen. Right after I saw it I was unsure about the plot. But, now looking back it is more clear. Some label this movie as a horror film, which is really disgusting to me. Just because it doesn't have a stupid joke or cliche in it, doesn't mean it can't be a romance. I am glad I saw it. Finally a movie that has a more intellectual and artsy feeling to it rather than some bubblegum cliche crap that comes to our box offices every summer. In the future I hope to see more films like this. Sorry to make this so long!!
