FULL SYNOPSIS

Taken from South Korean female playwright Um In-hee's production of the same name, this thoughtful comedy drama centers on a married pair of lawyers, Sung-ki (Ahn Sung-ki) and Gi-ja (Mun Seong-keun) who find themselves facing off in court and at home after a woman (Hwang Cine) decides to sue a major conglomerate for destroying her lover's sex-drive. Prosecutor Gi-ja represents the woman, while Sung-ki helps the defendant. The primary issue centers on the unstoppable Korean post-war work ethic in which employees are expected to devote their lives to supporting their companies, something that destroys many relationships and even lives. Arguments from the case parallel the lawyers' marriage and open a huge, painful gulf between them. This film played at the 1998 Pusan Film Festival. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
