Synopsis by Perry Seibert
South Korean director Ryu Seung-wan's second feature, No Blood No Tears, features an unlikely friendship between two women. Gyeong-seon (Lee Hye-Eun), a physically tough cab driver, and Su-jin (Jeon Do-yeon), a moll to a gangster named Bulldog (Jeong Jae-eun), meet when the latter hits the former's taxi. Gyeong is in debt to local mobsters because of her deadbeat former husband, and Su, who dreams of fame as a singer, is tired of being assaulted by Bulldog. Together, they plot to make away with the money from Bulldog's dog-fighting operation. The only question is if they can trust each other. The film was screened at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival.
