I'll start by saying this movie is not for everyone. It has a lot of sexual content, some very violent scenes and can be quite disturbing. The story is very interesting.

What's so great about this movie is you feel like you are watching it through the eyes of Hyun Woo, the schizophrenic. Hyun Woo is searching for inner peace, but he has a beautiful heart. Because of this, your not sure if what you're seeing is really happening or not. There is definitely a message in this movie, but you may need to watch it a few times to fully understand what it's about. Also, there may be many different interpretations of the meaning, and I think they are all valid. I missed a lot the first time I watched this, and appreciated more when I re-watched it. The acting is outstanding. I applaud Jang Hyuk with a standing ovation.

I hesitate recommending this movie because it's so disturbing in parts, I really feel some people with very much dislike it. Because it's confusing and somewhat open ended, some people may not feel satisfied. It really depends on what kind of tolerance you have for oddities.

First of all, I don’t know how I end up watching movies that have a sexually explicit scenes in them. This is twice now.
This is NOT a family movie. This movie was recommended to me and I watched it without even knowing what it was about. I love elephants so the name immediately caught my attention. Anyway, the story is unusual and by the end I wasn’t sure what I had just watched. It is a twisted, artsy movie.
Honestly, I love twisted movies and this was just up my alley, but I’m not sure just anyone would like it. View at your own risk.
