There is a bizarre South Korean movie called '3-Iron' (Bin-jip). This movie is about a young man who finds homes where the tenants are away, breaks in and lives there for a while. However he doesn't rob the place but instead goes out of his way to actually fix broken things he finds there. He also takes photos of the place as kind of a souvenir. In the end however he gets more than he bargained for when he becomes a murder suspect. But he is quickly cleared of the charges.

Now, those who have watched 'Castle' might find this plot uncannily similar to some elements of episode 2x14 'The Third Man'. I'm certain I'm not the first one to make this connection, but I'm surprised I found only one single hit for it with Google. I'm not seeing things here, am I? This is too good to be coincidence, right?

More likely they are both adaptations of the real modern day phenomenon of squatters maintaining the home they occupy in return for the roof over their heads, without the knowledge of the owners. Nothing is original.

Huh, people actually do that? Reality Is Unrealistic, indeed.
