Filmbrain,

Thanks for giving this wonderful film greater exposure. Hopefully you will add to the incentive for someone to get this damn film out on DVD.

i was just going to ask if Aimelss Bullett available on DVD.

Does anyone have any info on a possible DVD release?

Adam

uw,

thankfully, at least AIMLESS BULLET is out on DVD - http://www.yeondvd.com/classic.html#obaltan

Actually, Myong-Ja is the student who sent the
love letter and later she went back to her
country and died.
No body knows the name of the housemaid.
Some critics interpret this anonymity as a symbol
of middle class's despise to lower class.

Oh man -- how embarrassing! I took notes during the film -- so many in fact that I had trouble deciphering them all. (It's not easy for me to write in the dark.)

I wasn't sure about the name, but I confirmed my suspicion in Kyung Hyun Kim's book "The Remasculinization of Korean Cinema", where he too refers to the housemaid as Myong-ja.

I'll amend the post later -- thank you for pointing it out.

Even though I have not seen The Housemaid, this is a very perceptive review, and desperately makes me want to see it. Dang - no DVD!
