The young man leads a Spartan existence, thereby striking a relatively sharp contrast to the hedonism and materialism which envelopes him daily as he makes his way around lower Manhattan in sandals and a flowing orange tunic. rnrnFor while his simple path may be marked by meditation, abstinence, detachment and self-denial, he has chosen to live in a world permeated by people obsessed with conspicuous consumption and self-indulgence. Nonetheless, Chris has carefully carved out his own oasis of solitude in his East Village walk-up where he can quietly put his philosophy of non-attachment into practice. rnrnIn the apartment next-door, however, lives Lotusia (Laurel Astri), an 18 year-old, Catholic school girl. Chris, who only enjoys a nodding acquaintance with his attractive neighbor, presumes the cute coed to be a paragon of virtue. He even imagines her as something a kindred spirit, admiring her from afar, and placing this symbol of purity up on a pedestal.rnrnThis all changes, the day that he happens to discover a tiny hole in the wall between their two flats. Unable to resist the urge to peep, he gets an eyeful of Lotusia\'s secret life as a prostitute. To his dismay, he discovers that not only does she sell her body to a rogue\'s gallery of creepy characters, but she willingly participates in a disgusting variety of sexual perversions to satisfy her clients\' kinky fantasies.rnrnMonitoring each of her liaisons, Chris finds himself gradually turning into a voyeur. Plus, he\'s in a moral quandary about how to respond. Should he follow his primal impulse and rush in and rescue Lotusia from this self-destructive path? Or should he abide by the dictates of Buddhism and do nothing? This increasingly-urgent dilemma is the driving force of One-Third, an engaging psychological thriller resting on the unique tension of enabled by a righteous attitude of non-attachment. rnrnOstensibly inspired by Dante\'s Inferno, the picture was conceived and created by Yongman Kim, a Korean-American graduate of NYU Film School. Kim, who put his moviemaking career on hold to create a successful chain of video rental stores (Kim\'s Video), makes an impressive, if belated directorial debut, here, with what he promises is just the first in a trilogy. rnrnJudging by One-Third, which proved to be a valuable examination of the intersection of Eastern and Western philosophies from a distinctly Asian perspective, devotees of sophisticated cinema will be eagerly awaiting the next installment of Mr. Kim\'s contemplative, complicated worldview.rn rn rnCodec: XvidrnSize: 699MBrnRuntime: 01:27:45 rnResolution: 528x384 rnBitrate: 1012 kb/srnFPS: 23.976rnAudio: English.
