Here's another high profile debut, and it's from CJ Entertainment, so any expectations should be cautious, but I love films where outsiders end up in bad situations in the countryside. Plus, the post-Korean War setting and casting seem strong. But what really has me excited is a still I've seen (that I can't share quite yet), that brings to mind Fellini's La Strada (1954) in both a sweet and twisted light.
