Fanget i nettet

Kim Ki-Duks nyeste film hadde verdenspremiere på Venezia-festivalen 2016!

En nord-koreansk fisker får motorstopp og driver over til den sør-koreanske siden av sundet. Der blir han uten videre arrestert og utsatt for brutale forhør. Etter mange viderverdigheter blir han til slutt sendt tilbake til Nord-Korea. Før han blir deportert legger han merke til samfunnets skyggesider, som står i sterk kontrast til det offisielle bildet av nabolandet. Han opplever også at den økonomiske utviklingen ikke nødvendigvis fører til at folk blir lykkeligere.
Når han kommer tilbake til hjemlandet, blir han uansett utsatt for samme type forhør som i sør. Når han endelig slippes fri, men med begrenset bevegelsesfrihet, opplever han å være i en svært vanskelig situasjon; som et uskyldig offer for den ideologiske krigen mellom de to koreanske statene.


"The film makes a very good point about how citizens of both countries, in fact of all countries, unconsciously view the world through the blinders of their native political ideology. While for the South Korean anti-espionage agents communism, dictatorship and brainwashing are synonymous, through the eyes of a poor North Korean it is inexplicable how, in a land of democracy, freedom and abundance, people are so unhappy. Kim's balancing of values and viewpoints is startlingly bold, though the film isn't about taking sides." Hollywood Reporter

"By comparing the crimes of both Koreas, Geumul risks providing a false-equivalency argument, but it just about works. Kim Ki-duk succeeds in offering a more complex perspective on a political situation that is all too often joked about in the West." www.oneroomwithaview.com

"A highly original rumination on the question of what it means to be a Korean national today, and on the suffering caused by the political division of the peninsula, The Net is the thought-provoking latest film by the bad boy of Korean cinema, Kim Ki-duk." Omtale fra Toronto Int'l Film Festival

"The brighter the light, the darker the shadow?, says a character in the film - it's a perfect summation of Kim's latest, illustrating how bounty and peace don't equate to happiness when those in power would use both to keep a complacent society unwittingly enslaved. The Net works as a satisfying thriller with a deeply political and universal message, despite its focus on the troubles between South and North Korea. Kim delves into the humanity that's lost during war, wringing genuine tension from characters who are forced to come to the end of themselves. Dark and rich with psychosis, this is a thriller that has just enough to outlast its runtime." Omtale fra AFI fest.
