About This DVD
Off-beat and nearly surreal in its presentation, this darkly comic drama from South Korea's youngest female director, 23-year-old Lee Suh-goon, tells the tale of Nana, a lovely young lady assassin who suffers a drug-induced amnesia at the hands of her last client, an American who hired her to kill him. He administers the drug to Nana just before he died. Forgetting her bloody past, Nana goes on vacation with Cho Han, a manga (a popular form of graphic novel similar to an elaborate comic book) illustrator. Cho Han is crazy about Nana and pays tribute to her by drawing a character based on her in one his latest works. Much of the film's charm and interest comes from the sharply contrasting, colorful settings and occasional use of camera effects that give it the look and feel of an anime feature. Reobu Reobu played at the 1998 Pusan Film Festival and at the Vancouver Film Festival.
Nana, the heroine of this film, is 26-year-old professional killer. She, a somewhat successful killer, is merciless, careless and innocent woman whose dream is to go to China. Then she encounters her destiny that changes her life itself due to possessive desire of a man who loves her and then she has to live without identity. Cho Han, a cartoonist, is off his head about Nana and follows her blindly. Closed and selfish type of human being who lives in cartoon-like fantasy. Though he makes Nana swallow capsule of remembrance, he deserts her coldly as she suffers from aftermath. Nana was only but a model for him to complete his comics. Ironically enough, however, he faces tragic death shot by the police who misunderstand him 'Nana'.
