    An early film from Director Kim Ki-duk, renowned for its striking visuals and provocative narrative, THE ISLE explores loneliness, desperation, and the human capacity for both cruelty and compassion, all while maintaining a tense and unsettling atmosphere.

    The mysterious Hyun-Shik arrives at a rural fishing resort. Renting a tiny floating cabin from the silent Hee-Jin, he spends his time in quiet contemplation watching the other men fishing and day-to-day events unfold. But Hyun-Shik isn’t the only person watching, and inbetween her boat trips to supply necessities – fishing bait, coffee and sex workers - to the holidaying fishermen in each floating cabin Hee-Jin is also watching life on the lake, as well as the activities of her new guest. What unfolds is a haunting story of secrets, lusts, desires, and dangerous obsessions, all set against the backdrop of the beautiful haunted landscape.
