skeptically, because senor sitenoise raves about it
Fabulous. This is the kind of indie gem from Japan I long for. It's just high school girls being high school girls, with a decent little plot about what happens when one of the girls finds a wallet with a bunch of money in it and her friend discovers that the owner of the wallet is 'hot'. Dialog is sharp and the film doesn't go where you expect.
I think we have identical taste in films. I can tolerate some fake violence more than you, and you forgive more dumb than I do, but give us a good script, sound design and photography (the infrastructure), and we're on the rode to agreement.

She's beautiful, probably beautiful naked too, and I'd love to see her playing a seductive, sexy role, but in a good context, not as part of Park's icky move into exploitation cinema.
Finishes movie slightly less of a Kim Min-hee fan
