Ionas is an old Romanian countryman who spends his summer nights guarding his cornfield against the starving boars that come to eat his crops. He double-checks the fences and occasionally shouts in the darkness. The film meticulously shows the life of the strong-willed old man, who doesn’t have that much time left. He might be able to win the fight with the boar, but the film reveals the solemn truth that death cannot be defied. (KIM Se-jin)
