About This DVD
1997, The Contact - his debut film: without a single kiss scene, he changed the horizons of Korean cinema with this melodrama.1999, Tell Me Something - his second film: moving into completely new, uncharted territory, the "hard gore" thriller. Even now, five years later, this film's accomplishments remain unmatched. And 2004, Some - his third film: the present climate in the film industry is of breathless production year by year, like products being made in a factory. Paying no mind to the comedy genre's overwhelming influence in recent years, he has spent five years focused on making one movie. Neither a melodrama or a simplistic thriller, Some combines action, spectacle and drama to create a completely new kind of film. Finally, in the fall of 2004, the veil will be lifted from the Korean film industry's much-discussed project Some.
"I remember this man...I remember this moment."
Yesterday and tomorrow, co-existing in today. A fascinating deja-vu mystery.
The concept of "deja-vu" appears from the very start of the film. In the first scene, we see a woman's flash of deja-vu that show's a man's death in 24 hours. And then this man, who is completely unknown to her but who seems oddly familiar, comes into her life. As in Minority Report or The Matrix, the fantastic mystery thriller Some uses the concept of deja-vu to play with the concept of rearranged time, and the future unfolding in the present.
deja-vu. A situation in which something that has never been experienced is felt as something familiar. (Even when meeting someone for the first time, a sense that you already know that person. It's the first time you've been in a certain place, but you feel like you've been there before.) It's a feeling that most people have experienced in their daily lives, but the reason behind such feelings is something that modern science cannot explain with certainty.
In 24 hours, the whole of the city will be reversed
An explosive combination of action and sensation in the city
The background of Some is a city in which black rain falls from a blue sky. From the skyscrapers of Teheran-no, cars rush through the expressways of Seoul that stretch like a spider web around the city. From the appearance of a group of Tuscany car owners to the frenzied driving of a man under the influence of drugs, to the theft of $10 million worth of illegal drugs, Some follows the investigations of Seoul detectives in a collection of non-stop action. Dizzy speed and violent action... Some presents new possibilities in the realm of cinema.
