All it takes is the discovery of a huge pile of cash in a locker for people to lose whatever humanity they had left and become grasping beasts who will betray anyone in the blink of an eye. With its spiralling story arc, manipulative voice over and flashes of violence, this debut by Kim Yong-hoon is constructed like a roman noir and echoes classic movies in this genre such as The Grifters (Stephen Frears, 1990).

Special FIFF screening on 16th November at Cinéma Rex in Fribourg at 20:30: tickets
