The Isle

The Isle

Kim Ki-Duk / KR, 2000 / 86 min.

A screening in tribute to Kim Ki-Duk, who has passed away at the age of 59. In The Isle, a fisherman and a fishmonger develop an obsessive love affair.

The Isle is reminiscent of Miike Takashi's Audition, but with a vengeance. An obsessive relationship develops between a fisherman and a seller of fish. The exquisite setting – the story takes place on a lovely lake – sharply contrasts with the horrors of the relationship.

Kim Ki-Duk: "Even if love changes into obsession and rage, it can still be a life-giving force."
