Film description

Gi-hong works as a construction carpenter. He lives from contract to contract, inhabiting a big, mostly empty house in the suburbs, and befriending its owner and his wife. One day, the three of them discover a strange dent in the roof of Gi-hong's car. Gi-hong launches a private investigation to get to the bottom of the case. The answer to the mystery introduces a new character that will shake the foundations of the lives of Gi-hong and those around him.

Lee unravels his story unhurriedly, masterfully focusing on the awkwardness of daily human interactions in a way so funny and surprising that despite the visible inspiration with Lee Chang-dong's "Burning," "A Wild Roomer" remains a fresh and original voice of Korean independent cinema. Lee's mature debut received two awards at the Busan IFF, fueling the hopes of the director's prompt return to the film set.
