Shilje sanghwang aka Real Fiction (2000)

Kim Ki-Duk is one of my favorite Asian directors. This time I watched 'Real fiction', one of its earlier works and I think is is a really good one. It reminded of me Lars Von Trier and his unique style in Dogville. It is a low budget film referring to a revenge story. The main character is a street artist, a painter who faces a lot of problems. A local gang humiliates him as well as different customers. Soon his patience will end and the massacre will begin. When he will visit an alternative show in a theater, his life is going to change for ever as a guy will convince him to take revenge on everyone who ever harmed him. A strong story who blends reality with fiction. Finally where is the line between them? Very good work for its budget!
