In the Jungle

Director Yong Hwa Kim / 2000 / Korea

Two brothers eke out a hand-to mouth existence gutting fish. Their mother is in hospital, dying from an incurable disease. In the Jungle is a confronting look at contemporary Korean life. It is a challenging film—dark and gritty, at times reminiscent of Ken Loach's sombre 'social realism'. An honest glimpse of familial resilience that lingers well after the fade to black.
