Details Limited Release: Jul 13, 2007; Rated: Unrated; Length: 97 Minutes; Genres: Drama, Foreign Language; With: Park Ji-yun and Ha Jung-woo; Distributor: Lifesize

A jealous girlfriend (Seong Hyeon-ah), convinced her boyfriend (Ha Jung-woo) is growing tired of her ''same boring face,'' disappears and turns to surgery to buy a new one. Then the jilted boyfriend meets a ''new'' girl (Park Ji-yun), who is actually the old girl. And then it gets weirder. Time, Kim Ki-Duk's pointed commentary on surfaces and consumer fads — with particular meaning for plastic-surgery-obsessed South Korea — is as tautly ''pretty'' and inexpressive as the results for those who compulsively seek cosmetic perfection.
