In a period defined by a series of pivotal national events – the Gwangju Uprising, which reportedly left hundreds of people demonstrating against the military government dead; the subsequent repressive political environment; the rise and fall of the Korean economy – Yong-ho finds himself swept up by momentous forces beyond his control. Lee Chang-dong displays an extraordinarily deft touch in interweaving complex historical events and private life, national trauma and personal failure, portraying a man who is both victim and aggressor.

"The main character's radical choice is slowly charged with complex reasons, as the director divides his story into chapters and dives deeper into the past. Lee Chang-dong, who came into filmmaking from literature, develops an intellectually and emotionally rich story, where the question of human existence is linked to the psychological, historical and political contexts." (Mantė Valiūnaitė)
