GREEN FISH
The debut feature of Lee Chang-dong — regarded by many as South Korea's greatest living filmmaker — this striking feature follows a young man discharged from the military, who becomes involved in the grubby life of a Seoul gangster.

20 MARCH, 17:50
A DIRTY CARNIVAL
Often compared to Martin Scorcese's gangster masterpieces Goodfellas and Mean Streets, Yoo ha's tale sees a low-level debt-collector who, faced with lack of funds and a sick mother, opportunistically murder his way up the greasy pole.

NEW WORLD
A noir epic where corrupt policemen plot from the shadows to gain control of Korea’s biggest crime syndicate.
Booking: filmhousecinema.com/showing/new-world

3 April, 18:05
COIN LOCKER GIRL
Veteran South Korean star Kim Hye-soo plays the psychotic crime-boss, known as ‘Mom’, whose unsavoury trade includes organ-trafficking and loan-sharking in a film that eschews Hollywood redemption themes in favour of the twists and turns of modern Korean noir.

10 April, 20:35
THE MERCILESS
Whether inside prison or out, ruthless gangster Jae-ho and his new young protégé Hyun-soo struggle to trust each other in a world of endless double-dealing and betrayal. Reminiscent of Tarantino, this is also a moody neo-noir, all existential musings, rain-swept treachery and savagery just out of shot.
