To capture a natural setting so well on a medium that often feels cold and sterile is an unusual accomplishment.
The relaxed, convincing performances of the actors also deserve notice.
(It seems appropriate that Git's basic setup recalls Richard Linklater's Before Sunset, another film that stands out for the beauty and simplicity of its construction) On Biyang-do, the director -- named Jang Hyun-seong, the same as the actor who portrays him -- is overpowered with both memories of the past and the beauty of the island.
In Song's other works, such elements sometimes feel forced or self-consciously arty, but here they blend with the otherworldly presence of the island and add a sense of mystery.
Git (which means either a triangular flag or "feather" in Korean) is surprising in several respects.
This may have been what happened with Git by Song Il-gon, the director of Flower Island (2001), Spider Forest (2004), and various award-winning short films including The Picnic (1999).
Git was originally commissioned as a 30-minute segment of the digital omnibus film 1.3.6.
