Kim Ki Duk's The Coast Guard in July

Tartan Video have announced the UK DVD release of Kim Ki-Duk’s The Coast Guard for 24th July 2006 priced at £19.99. A trigger-happy coast guard soldier accidentally kills a civilian, who has wandered into a restricted area. His military superiors decide to grant him a week's leave to let the incident drop. However, all it succeeds in doing is sending the guard on a path to madness.

When it was first screened in Pusan, it caused controversy because it was seen as a criticism of the South Korean army, a claim that Kim Ki-Duk refuted. However, it is more accurately another disturbing study of the human condition, which is reflected in most of his work.

Features include:

  • Anamorphic Widescreen Presentation
  • DD2.0, DD5.1 & DTS 5.1 Surround
  • Introduction and Interview with Kim Ki-Duk
  • Director’s Commentary
  • Original Korean Promotional Material
