Synopsis:  In this directorial debut, Cheoi-Jong (Yoo Ji-Tae) was once a legendary professional bowler, but a devastating accident ends his promising career. Now, he feebly bowls in underground matches organized by Hee-jin (Lee Jung-Hyun), an owner of a bowling alley deep in debt.  Despite high stakes bets fortune alludes them until they spot an autistic-savant named Young-Hoon (David Lee) whose bizarre zen-like methods of bowling make him the most indomitable adversary the game has ever seen.

“Nearly every frame in Split has a vibrant, gorgeously saturated palette, and the production registers at a typically high Korean standard,”- The Hollywood Reporter

"Split bowls its way into hearts" -

"....bowling is presented in quite impressive fashion, with the concept benefitting the most by Baek Yoon-seok's cinematography, which gives the bowling alleys a colorful and very pleasant feeling, and Kim Sun-min's editing. Particularly the latter manages to retain a sense of agony through the majority of the matches, with some fast but very accurate cuts." -
