Comments: Film moves from "Get away, crazy lady" to "I love you mom" to "I'll die without you" too quickly to believe. I wonder how this would have played if Kim would have employed his trademark no-dialog approach. The story arc is interesting but incredulous.

Summary: A loan shark is forced to reconsider his violent lifestyle after the arrival of a mysterious woman claiming to be his long-lost mother.
