A psychological battle between man and tiger. A touching story as well of the similarities of man and his family versus the tiger and its family. Back and forth they go through a series of events over a period of years , involving loss, revenge, sympathy, and acknowledgement.
The film is as beautiful to view as any that has been produced. The cgi is spectacular..if you though Revenant was something to behold just wait till you see the battle of the tiger versus the hunters.
At times, a bit far fetched with how this massive animal survived, but that is also part of the story, survival.
You will feel sympathy for both man and tiger, sadness, revenge, and triumph, and when it is all over the symbolism of the final shot will have your emotions at their bitter end.
Best Korean film since The Host and if you are an avid Asian film enthusiast, you will recognize the lead actor from a number of films ( Old Boy ) as well a couple of the supporting cast.
One of the most enjoyable films borrowed this year.

Forget Ang Lee's Life of (digital) Pi: this kitty can act! Better than Jean-Jacques Annaud's The Bear and more profound than The Old Man and the Marlin. Spoiler alert: a young hunter saved a one-eye tiger cub; they grew up as a wise old man and the meanest Lord of the Mountain. Of course, the tiger's rampage through armed men was a bit 300, but the back story is solidly entertaining.
