ENTER our competition to win one of three copies of Pieta directed by Korean auteur Kim Ki-duk. Sarah Khazaal has the details.

Fans of Korean cinema will be able to win one of three copies of Pieta, Kim Ki-duk’s relatively new film thanks to Madman Entertainment.

Korean writer/director Kim Ki-duk has wowed arthouse critics and audiences the world over with Pieta for its tale of sex and violence.

The film sees debt collector Kang-do (Lee Jeong-jin) use utterly brutal means of torture to collect outstanding payments from those in debt. His lack of  morality and compassion is seemingly brought to a halt however by the unwelcome arrival of a woman claiming to be his long lost mother.

Named after Michelangelo’s masterpiece housed in St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, Pieta is by no means a simple film – which is the case with perhaps all of Kim Ki-duk’s films.

A thought-provoking experience, the film tackles ideas of industrial capitalism, morality and redemption with much malaise and darkness.

Curious to find out more about the film? Meld Magazine has three copies to give away to lucky readers keen to discover the cinema of Kim Ki-duk.

To win, all you have to do is enter the competition below and wait for the results to find out if you’re one of the lucky few that will be able to see the film.
