[edit] Information

A documentary on five young wannabe stuntmen working in the South Korean film industry. Opening with a sardonic account of the director's own history of unwarranted self-confidence (it involves art school, military service, being made redundant, being dumped by various girlfriends and idolizing Stephen Chow), Jung Byung-Gil's hair-raising documentary proceeds to explore what makes a certain type of young man try for a career as a stunt man. Of the 36 who apply for places in Seoul Action School (run by stunt directors Kim Kyung-Tae and Kim Won-Joong), around half drop out within a month and only three find anything like regular work in the film industry. Glimpses of the shooting of movies like City of Violence and The Host reveal very clearly why the rate of attrition is so high. Teeth are knocked out, limbs and backs are broken, and eventually there's a fatal accident.
