Lies (거짓말, Gojitmal) is a South Korean erotic drama film adapted from the banned novel Tell me a Lie by Jang Jung Il, which depicts a sadomasochistic sexual relationship between a 38-year-old sculptor and an 18-year-old highschool student. The film was shot in a semi-cinéma vérité style and features interviews with the author and cast spliced in between scenes. Intended to provoke, the film contains full-frontal nudity, unsimulated sex, coprophilia, and criticisms of South Korean society. It was heavily censored upon its initial release in South Korea, but international releases were left uncut.
