  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In his brief introduction at the beginning of "Address Unknown," director Kim Ki-Duk states that the film is about American soldiers stationed in Korea. While this certainly is the case, the focus of the movie is on the young Koreans whose lives are affected by the tragedies of war. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.80:1 DVD picture exhibits mediocre quality at best. Being sourced from less-than-optimal elements, the picture is plagued by film grain artifacts and dirt. Colors are poorly saturated and sharpness is merely adequate. Pixel breakup can be a problem with this title, and there is also some edge enhancement noticed in the higher contrast scenes.
