About the Film:

Part of Seoul Cinema 2015

Directed by Kim Seong Hoon. South Korea. 2014. 111 min. Korean with English subtitles.

Like Man on High Heels, this New York Times Critics’ Pick is a highly unconventional crime thriller. Kim Seong Hoon’s dark (very dark) comedy is a tour de force of visual wit and narrative gymnastics. Driving back from his mother's funeral, homicide detective Gun Soo (Hong Sang Soo regular Lee Sun Kyun) runs over a man in a dark rural street. In a moment of desperation, he dumps the body in a coffin alongside his mother. A few days later, Gun Soo flips through a listing of open cases and finds his accidental victim. His colleague is on the accident case and is slowly making progress. Making matters worse, a witness steps forward, a detective named Park. For a reason unclear to Gun Soo, Park wants the body. Without another choice, Gun Soo digs up his mother's grave and retrieves the body, only to find gunshot wounds on it. As Park's threats become more vicious and hit closer to home, Gun Soo decides to face him head-on once and for all.
