The Isle (Seom)

erotic, disturbing, and weird

the isle is a korean drama about a suicidal man trying to escape from his problems. he flees to a small vacation community of small floating houses, ran by a mute woman who may have mystical powers. the woman and man form a unique love/hate relationship, and develop deep feelings for eachother. well, as the story goes on at a slow pace, some people die, others attempt suicide, and lots of sex. there are some disturbing scenes involving fish hooks and rape, but you'll have to watch it to understand. the ambiguous ending is indeed weird, but that's what makes it good. the weirdness quality and good acting make this one worth seeing for sure.
