Comments: Weird art film with good production values, co-ed full frontal nudity, and excellent performances about a woman living and caring for her father. He suffers from dementia. She is deaf and mute with psycho-sexual drama bubbling up everywhere. The film's too vague to be powerful but it's engaging for the performances. Veteran actor Jung Jae-Jin plays the father and unknown actress Hee-gyung Ha is magnificent as the daughter. I look forward to seeing more of her. I hope to, anyway.

Summary: The film shows the event in the outskirts of a town where the government’s re-development plan is being carried out. An unmarried daughter lives with her father, who suffers from dementia, and plays hwa-tu with him every night. The woman’s desire to break away from this stifling life and the reality that does not permit escape are symbolized by the diverse disorders appearing in the film.

Based on the novel "Game of the Night" by Oh Jung-hee.
