#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – The disconnections of urban life. Yun-ju is diffident, almost without affect; his wife is pregnant, and he’s wonders if he should bribe the dean to secure a professorship. He’s also bothered by a yapping dog that disturbs him in the large block of flats where he lives. Hyeon-nam is equally disengaged; she’s a bookkeeper at same block of flats, animated only when she learns of a lost dog. Over the course of a few weeks, three dogs in the building go missing – Yun-ju and Hyeon-nam have a connection to each. So might a janitor. Is it a man-eat-dog world? Is there any cure for this ennui? Can anyone connect?
Plot: An idle part-time college lecturer is annoyed by the yapping sound of a nearby dog. He decides to take drastic action.

A ten plus comedy noir about zero sum lives
This is something of a rarity, a indie Korean film. It’s also Joon-ho Bong’s directorial debut. It’s brilliant. Slow, but impeccably paced and broadly intermixed with multiple levels of wonderful comedy, acting, atmosphere (a kind of existential (and cement) wasteland), and directing. Be warned. Pet lovers are going to be shocked, and maybe outraged. But really, don’t take this too literally, Joon-ho Bong knows he is playing with your sensibilities and he knows that you know it (or you should know it by now, if you have been watching film, tv, and advertising for your entire life). This is real cinematic virtuosity.
The promotion for this film compared it to American Beauty and that was a somewhat surprising but very apt comparison. American Beauty would be a fine double bill with this. But, if you have not seen any other Korean films you should give some a try. I saw this as part of a festival with JSA (Joint Security Area), The Isle and some others, but those two were very good and would also be good for a double bill. A little farther afield might be Tsai Ming Liang’s the HOLE, or even farther, (and certainly not for the fainthearted) Go Go Second Time Virgin by Kosi Wakamatsu. Both intense looks at life in barren modern times and barren apartment complexes.
Brilliant black comedy – not a typical dog movie
Bong Joon Ho’s mastery on all fronts is on display here – an early flowering of masterworks to come. This story is clever funny involving exciting original and comes together so perfectly. The human characters are so interesting and multi dimensional. There has never been such a movie about dogs before.
A must watch.
