Do not buy popcorn if you're going to watch this movie - you'll have thrown up into it before you're halfway down the bag. It's appalling. A teenage girl places a small ad for a man to take her virginity, meets an older artist, has sex, gets sado-masochistic, plays with poo-poo, and learns about power relationships and sex. It's not an artistic film and it's definitely not titillating. It was banned in South Korea, where it was made, and director Jang was understandably threatened with prosecution. It's simply a bad movie that goes out of its way to be as ugly and gross as it can.
