One hopes that it will be liberated from the other two segments of 1.3.6. At 70 minutes, it is a perfectly respectable length for a stand-alone feature film, and this is a movie that deserves to travel.
(Darcy Paquet) There was a lot going on in the world of Korean film at the beginning of 2005.
Git (which means either a triangular flag or "feather" in Korean) is surprising in several respects.
Comprising works by Jang Jin (Someone Special), Lee Young-jae (Harmonium in My Memory) and Song, 1.3.6 was intended to explore environmental themes and was slotted to open the first Green Film Festival in Seoul in late October.
Alas, the festival's expectations were confounded, first in that only Lee Young-jae's work really engaged environmental issues in a direct way (the other two were merely set in rural areas), and second by the fact that Song went out and shot a 70-minute film.
Almost missed among all that was a quiet film directed by a virtual unknown but starring the talented Jo Seung-woo.
The media found it interesting as 'a story of human triumph' but most people seemed certain that Kang Woo-suk's feature would dominate the box office.
This may have been what happened with Git by Song Il-gon, the director of Flower Island (2001), Spider Forest (2004), and various award-winning short films including The Picnic (1999).
