Sergeant Jeong Cheol-min has a reputation for iron-fisted discipline, but Yeong-soo, a newly inducted young soldier, is simply unable to follow orders. Jeong resorts to bullying to make the recruit fall in line, with serious consequences. Last year, after being tapped for the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes, filmmaker Yeon Sang-ho took home two Fantasia awards, the Satoshi Kon Prize for best animated film and the New Flesh Prize for best debut feature film. With THE WINDOW, he returns to the theme of intimidation, this time placing his events of a military base to create a dark drama about the soldier’s life. Not to be missed!
