Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Drama NR. On a fishing boat at sea, a 60-year old man has been raising a girl since she was a baby. It is agreed that they will get married on her 17th birthday, and she is 16 now. They live a quiet and secluded life, renting the boat to day fishermen and practicing strange divination rites. Their life changes when a teenage student comes aboard. Director Kim Ki-Duk already has several masterpieces under his belt and The Bow just adds another to that list. The 60-year old man uses the bow he has to not only protect the young girl from outside evils but also he uses it as a instrument to soothe the girl as the boat travels up sea. The film uses very little dialogue but the film is remains powerful and effective due to it's fantastic story telling. In closing, sometimes what makes a great film is how many emotions it brings out in the viewer and how that person feels at the end of it all, well if we have to rate this film based on that then The Bow is indeed another masterpiece from an already cinematic genius. All I can say is own this great film today. Released by Tartan Video. ***** Out Of *****
