Plot: Jae Hee stars in this action comedy as Byung Tae, a cowardly high school kid who is scraping through life the hard way. His days are tormented by school bullies and are making his life a living hell. One day he meets Pan Su a wizened elder, well versed in martial arts. Pan Su agrees to teach his art to Byung Tae and help him defend himself against his tormentors, and in doing so, Byung Tae begins to learn things about himself, and about life, that they don't teach at school. The Art Of Fighting is the feature length directorial debut from successful short filmmaker Shin Han Sol.
«Set in a grim, ugly-looking town where the people seem motivated by boredom rather than any enthusiasm for life, the film is most memorable for its black humor and the great presence shown by its two lead actors.»
«THE ART OF FIGHTING forms an intersection of quirky humor and bloody violence that offers something genre fans may not have seen before. The mentor/student relationship of martial arts movies is given an irreverent twist with some action that involves intentionally artless and unpleasant survival fighting.»
