The mood of the opening music of the movie was somewhat a cross between slow thriller and a sad opera. The main lead, Tae Suk(played by Lee Seung Yon) does part time job in a pizza place. For someone who does part time jobs he has a pretty decent bike.As he take out his bike from parking, he encounters a business man in BMW. That must be their first meeting but there was a hidden hatred in the tension working on their eyes.
Tae Suk then comes to an apartment and starts picking the lock. (I first thought that it was his own house) Apparently this guy is homeless too(or is he a theif??)! The apartment kind of reminded me the apartment in the movie “My Little Bride”. Who knows, may be they are the same! The voicemail of the phone shows that the family has gone for a trip.He then washes up and relaxes as if it was his own house.
This guy has got some serious balls! He does not even find it weird getting used to someone else’s home. He fixes a broken toy gun, takes photographs, washes clothes ,watches television….Maybe he is used to this very much. The family returns and this is guy is gone like a magic. He sure is a pro! It is then we find that he really doesn’t work in pizza place or anywhere for that matter. He just goes to stick around bills in house to find which family is out of town(They wont take down the bill from the door if they are out of town). What an idea sirji!! This time he has gotten his hands on a great villa(A definite jackpot for him!). But alas! the villa was not empty. There was poor harassed women curled up in the corner of a room.
The woman,SunHwa watches Tae Suk getting comfortable but just remains a silent audience. For one second Tae Suk looks startled,I thought that he had seen her. But no he was just staring at her photograph. Meanwhile the someone at the voice mail apologizes. Then our guy does the usual -taking photos, washing, cooking,playing golf,repairing broken weighing machine…still unaware of the presence of another human soul in the house!
A quiet Legend.
My Rating: 4.6/5
