Tae-suk drifts around on his motorcycle looking for empty houses to stay in until the vacationing owners return. He never steals or ruins anything, in fact spends his time fixing broken items as a form of rent. One day, Tae-suk meets his destiny; a married woman named Sun-hwa. When Tae-suk breaks in, Sun-hwa hides in the dark and silently watches him. When she sees him fixing a broken scale, she realizes he is not a thief and continues to observe him from the shadows. When Sun-hwa's husband comes home and abuses her, Tae-suk grabs a 3-iron and swings it at golf balls, which strike her husband. Tae-suk and Sun-hwa run away and live in empty homes together until one day when they find a dead body!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A lyrical, sporadically violent tale of love on the run that gradually turns into something spooky, poetic and disarmingly gentle.
Fresh: It's actually quite satisfying, in a weird, magical-realism sort of way that manages to disturb and confound as much as it appeases the romantic.
Fresh: Kim works with the barest of materials but returns the viewer's attention to the pure visual pleasure of filmmaking.
Fresh: This enigmatic and in some ways maddening motion picture has the power to haunt every viewer it reaches.
Unique and quiet perfection
This is one of my all time favorite movies. I could watch it 1000 times and get something new out of it each time. I do not understand Korean culture too well but this movie and story need no translation. very romantic, very unique.
