Rated NR 90 minutes 1961

Brutally honest as well as brutally violent, this 2009 Korean feature centers on a mob enforcer (Yang Ik-june), the product of a seriously dysfunctional family, who communicates mainly through profanity or his fists. He opens up after meeting a tough high school senior from a similarly screwed-up household (Kim Khobbi), but their offbeat friendship is threatened when her abusive brother joins the hero's gang. Amid the violent outbursts are moments of warmth and tenderness, some featuring the protagonist's young nephew, the best hope for breaking the generational cycles of domestic tragedy. Yang directed his own script. In Korean with subtitles.
