"Fun" for all the family...

Adultery, incest, rape, castration, autoerotic stimulation with knives... Kim Ki-duk’s latest is the most perverse comedy (yes, comedy) since Takashi Miike gave us lactating breasts and necrophilia in Visitor Q. The ‘fun’ begins when a Korean mother (Lee Eun-woo) gives her son’s (Seo Young-ju) chopper the chop and the father (Jo Jae-Hyeon) donates his own tackle for a graft – only to see his lad develop priapic pangs for ma.

Among the blood, sweat and (ahem) salty tears are musings on desire, family and emasculation, but this is Kim at his most mischievous, the laughs drowning all.
