ok , Park Chan Wook is a brilliant director , he's like Kubrick , every shot is lovingly crafted , hypnotic , I'll watch anything he makes , but this is slow , I think I'll prefer watching it again on tv .

the plot is basically one of those psychological dramas where you're not sure if the main character is imagining all or some of it , each scene is filled with symbolism , I'm sure in the future there will be long essays written about the meanings of each scene (it's full of childhood symbolism : drawings , forgotten traumas, eggs etc.) , but on a first viewing its hard to get involved you're not sure what its supposed to mean .
