A smash hit in Korea, JSA is a highly intelligent and emotive action film set around an ‘incident’ at the North/South Korean border. After several guards from each side are killed or injured, a neutral investigator attempts to determine what happened, hindered by the secrecy of the survivors. Audacious in both its political and sexual undertones, JSA is equally bold in its narrative inventiveness.
