Let me start off by saying, if you have a weak stomach then this movie is definitely NOT for you. It can get pretty gory at some parts. This movie is nothing like your typical Korean movie at all. I actually watched it for my Asian cinematography class almost eight years ago and have loved it ever since.. although i still don't understand why it would be considered educational. The acting is absolutely brilliant. The story line is pretty messed up in a creepy horror movie sort of way. If you like these kinds of movies you wont be disappointed ^^

The  film cinematographically uses deceptive, simple but accurate visual  compositions to narrate its seemingly simple recital of loss of  innocence, everything could be best presented, beginning with the story  that is considerably tiresome in the eyes of the onlookers. Initially,  everything seems to show in the story, until the intangible elements  slowly infiltrate the structure causing ambiguity and bringing emotional  turmoil that remain mostly subdued. The  premise of the main argument, however, may seem a bit exaggerated or  exaggerated for someone who can not easily accept the motives  represented for the actions of the two main characters in the case the  girl and her father, especially considering the scarcity of social or  psychological signifiers . Consequently,  the film works better at a symbolic than dramatic level, as the  beautifully concise final scene shows, a feather, the film would have a  higher potential if well drafted. Overall "Samaritan Girl" stayed on average technically speaking.
