Mother - (2009)
Director: Bong Joon-ho.
Never ending pain, like eating a full bush of chili peppers. The performance by Kim Hye-ja is phenomenal and it what makes the film great.
But i didn't like the story so much. It felt too harsh, almost sadistic towards the characters. And there was no 'set-piece' moment to relief the tension with comedy and joy. The murder investigation is a little cliche too.
I also didn't like the sound track. I was expecting something more traditional Korean, but they composed a latin-guitar song that felt out of place.
Verdict: 3.5 / 5 ★ - Good.
