|« Film Diary: The Office (Series One)||Film Diary: Bad Guy [Ki-duk Kim] »|
Early Ki-duk Kim. Interesting premise and characters, but less-than-stellar acting and direction. There were several scenes that played out like a bad after school special about abstinence.
Still, The Birdcage Inn has many of the ingredients found in Ki-duk Kim's later films. In fact, he followed it with The Isle, a much more skillful and mature film.
