"3 Iron" is Released
3-Iron (original Korean title: 빈집 or Bin-jip, meaning Empty Houses) is a 2004 Korean film directed by Kim Ki-duk.
The plot revolves around the relationship between a young drifter and a battered housewife. The film is notable for the lack of dialogue between its two main characters.
From the God-like, wide-open spaces of his Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring, Korean auteur Kim Ki-duk takes us into the teeming city of Seoul with 3-Iron. Here, Tae-suk (Jae Hee) delivers restaurant menus to various temporarily deserted homes he makes a habit of breaking into. He explores the lives and possessions of their inhabitants, and also, by way of payment, does their laundry. His picaresque solitary sojourning is interrupted when he encounters Sun-hwa (Lee Seung-yeon), a shy young wife he rescues from her abusive husband. Together, they go on Tae-suk's rounds and a kind of love blossoms between them, with nary a word exchanged. When the vengeful husband apprehends them, Tae-suk is jailed and the final outcome might be considered tragic were it not for a certain transcendence which occurs.
