During the day, Tae-suk (Jae Hee) is a homeless motorcycle courier who delivers brochures door-to-door. By night, he breaks into residences whose owners are away--but not to rob them. Tae-suk occupies their house as if it were his own--he even fixes their broken appliances. One evening, though, he enters the lodging of Sun-hwa (Lee Seung-yeon), an abused wife in a deeply unhappy marriage. After helping her escape the clutches of her violent spouse, Tae-suk and Sun-hwa quickly discover that they are kindred spirits on the run.
"3-Iron," with its subtle touch of the supernatural, is an oddly funny love story about dispossessed soul-mates who ultimately unlock each other's hearts. Starring Jae Hee and Lee Seung-yeon. Directed and written by Kim Ki-duk. Produced by Michio Suzukt. A Sony Pictures Classics release. Drama. Korean-language, subtitled. Rated R for some sexual content. Running time: 95 min
