David Knight - 19th Mar 2013

It's a leftfield idea that is initially almost bamboozling, because the video is true to the traditions of the genre. Patrick, back to directing after a year-plus sabbatical, plays it straight with a combination of intrigue, romance, evildoing and derring-do. You just have to disentangle a number of simultaneous storylines, set in different timeframes and places (both South and North Korea) involving the same actors playing similar roles in the different narratives.

Almost surprising too to see Patrick Daughters returning with something so averse to the cinematic production values for which he's renowned. But its so faithful to the subject you'd be forgiven for thinking its the real McCoy, until a few characters start lipsyncing...
