A KOFA print with English subtitles screened at Cinema Orion, Helsinki, 16 Nov 2010.- I caught a sample of Barking Dogs Never Bite, my first encounter with Bong Joon-ho, his debut feature film. A barking dog distracts an unemployed academic man. The woman is distraught with the loss of her pet. Visions of urban solitude and aspects of everyday comedy. Bong Joon-ho has a special look on life. The print is fine.
