There’s no question that “Arirang” is not a film for the casual viewer, and despite it having won the Un Certain Regard Award at Cannes, it’s also likely to nonplus art house aficionados and even some fans of Kim’s earlier works. Certainly, much of the film of it may not mean much to audiences unfamiliar with his career, and for his detractors will probably only serve to confirm criticisms of him being pretentious and aggressively obtuse. It is understandable that for many the film will seem self-indulgent, as for long stretches of its 100 minute running time it simply follows Kim as he goes about his daily business and his life in the rundown shack, which is so cold that he has to sleep in a tent when indoors.

"Land of Whispers" invites you to visit arguably the most unique and isolated travel destination in the world - not to criticize, but to observe and listen. Aside from usual highlights such as Pyongyang or Arirang, this unique one-man documentary brings you to areas such as Chongjin or Wonson, still virtually unknown to even google or wikipedia. There, I attempt to pierce through the ever-present 'national mythology' and as much as possible, I try to connect with people - such as the waitress mesmerized by tablet computers, or a tour guide cautiously fascinated by modern pop culture.

This CD is indeed a strange mixed bag. There are plenty of authentic traditional pieces like "Sakura", "Autumn sorrow", but there are also a number of modernized vocal numbers (rather western operatic style singing), one good Okinawan folk song, and believe it ir not, one Korean traditional song (Arirang) sung in Korean accompanied by kayagum. For some reason this good old folklore caused "geisha" fantasies in the disc compilers minds :)
