Director: Joon-ho Bong • 128min • MA
In Korean with subtitles

One of South Korea's most exciting filmmakers, Joon-ho Bong (The Host) takes audiences on a thrilling and intelligent psychological journey as hard-headed and overprotective mother Hye-ja determines to clear her mentally challenged son Do-joon of a crime she's convinced he did not commit.

As her own steadfast investigation proceeds in an attempt to prove his innocence and keep her son out of prison, Hye-ja finds her past returning to haunt her. Reminiscent of vintage Hitchcock, Mother is highly rewarding and compelling viewing.

Vertigo-style flashback and shocking revelations elevate the film beyond mere thriller into high-octane Almodovar territory. SCREEN INTERNATIONAL  MORE >
