As he waits, the pressures of his work life start to recede, and he becomes acquainted with the young woman who runs the motel.
To capture a natural setting so well on a medium that often feels cold and sterile is an unusual accomplishment.
The relaxed, convincing performances of the actors also deserve notice.
This may have been what happened with Git by Song Il-gon, the director of Flower Island (2001), Spider Forest (2004), and various award-winning short films including The Picnic (1999).
Git was originally commissioned as a 30-minute segment of the digital omnibus film 1.3.6.
Lee So-yeon makes her slightly thin character memorable through considerable screen presence, while Jang Hyun-seong of independent films Nabi and Rewind gives the performance of his career.
Whatever we feel about the character he portrays, Jang's performance is so real and natural that we can't help but be drawn to him.In Song's other works, such elements sometimes feel forced or self-consciously arty, but here they blend with the otherworldly presence of the island and add a sense of mystery.Git (which means either a triangular flag or "feather" in Korean) is surprising in several respects.Along with Jonathan Howe they have a fictional games company called Videlectrix.The games they release are influenced by all of the less-than-spectacular (though highly addictive) arcade and computer games of the '80s.Git centers around a film director who, in the middle of starting his next screenplay, remembers a promise he'd made ten years earlier.
