301/302 (1995) Dark psychological thriller about two ladies who live across the hall from each other in an apartment building. The story opens with a police detective questioning Song-hee (Bang Eun-jin) about the disappearance of her neighbor Yun-hee (Hwang Sin-hye) and from there, we're taken back to the beginning of the two women's early personal turmoils which led up to their current and quite different lifestyles.

Song-hee is a gluttonous gourmet, while Yun-hee is a reclusive anorexic. Both have deep-seeded reasons as to why they are as such. The former's obsession with food and cooking drove her husband to divorce her, and the latter's haunting childhood memories of her abusive father, money hungry mother and the butcher shop they owned (not to mention a tragic accident that caused the death of a neighborhood girl), led her to detest food.

Song-hee often brings food over to Yun-hee which she throws out after Song-hee leaves. Once Song-hee finds out that her meals have gone uneaten and unappreciated, she demands to know why. Yun-hee eventually reveals her dark secret to her neighbor and then suggests Song-hee try a new recipe that will leave them both satisfied.

I'll not go into the pros and cons of the movie; if you're curious you can always rent it. But if you're thinking of buying it, the DVD looks as if it had been burned from the VHS tape. There's no sharpness; the colors are blurry.

Also, the subtitles need some work. The only elements that are subtitled are the moments of dialog. This is confusing because if a character thinks to himself or says something off-screen, the lines are not subtitled. Also since one character is a writer, the camera will pick up lots of her writing which is supposed to tell you something about the person. But the written parts are not subtitled either. So the movie's intent and information are not complete when you watch this film.

301/302 begins as a Coloumbo-esque detective knocks on a lovely woman's door. Why is he there? Because the woman in Apartment 301 was, presumably, the last person to see her neighbor alive. He asks several questions about who her neighbor, in Apartment 302, is and how she, "301", came to know "302". Naturally, as a new resident of the building, she doesn't really know anyone in the building at all. Naturally.

The woman in Apartment 302 is sort of a recluse, in a sense. She goes about her business, but seems, for all intensive purposes, to prefer the confines of her home. "302" is a lithe, almost gaunt, creature in her mid-30's who writes for a living. "301" (Eun-jin Bang) has only just moved into the space across the hall from "302" and immediately began renovating the smallish apartment to suit her immense love of cooking. Much to the chagrin of "302", who get to put up with the noise of reconstruction. Soon after, "301" invites herself into her new neighbor's apartment to become friend's and to share with her some fine cooking. "301" becomes tremendously adventurous with her cooking when she realizes that "302" (Sin-Hye Hwang) refuses even the simplest of dishes, and flat out refuses to eat dishes containing meat. "301" figures she can help her neighbor out with that. She disguises meals in order to trick "302" into eating some pretty exotic stuff, but only after some brief unpleasantness. Both woman soon become freindly with one another and quickly feel compelled to share stories of brutal childhoods and passionless marriages.

And "301" also speculates (while talking with the detective as they both browse around "302"'s apartment) that "302" is sexually repressed because she won't enjoy the great food she cooks and brings her.
