1 sentence review: If you don't like dark stories and heavy theme, and cannot handle being frustrated while story develops, you will not like this movie.

Similar to Sangho Yeon's last movie, Dwaejiui Wang, Saibi depicts a darker part of the society, such as religious cults, swindlers, alcohol abuse, and domestic violence. Throughout the movie, the viewers are left to ponder about what is right and what is wrong, and may be very frustrated by how there is not a single character that truly acts on "justice". I will leave to to the viewers to decide what director Yeon was trying to communicate in this movie, read more

Saibi, or "The Fake", is an independent, Korean film that tells a tale of hardship in life and where religion fits into the picture. It wouldn't be a stretch to call this movie offensive, as most people might end up seeing it that way with its harsh language and harsh treatment towards its characters. Watching the movie, you can tell the audience it's directed at is very particular. There could be one powerful aspect of this movie, out of a laundry-list of them, that might make you want to drop it a short ways in. This movie requires patience, attention, and most surely tolerance.
