In order to raise money to fulfill their dreams of traveling to Europe, a pair of Korean teens start a prostitution business. After one of the girls is accidentally killed during a police raid, the other begins giving herself to her former clients as an act of penance. But when the surviving youth's father learns of what has been going on, he takes revenge against the johns as he struggles to help his troubled child.
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.
