★★★★★ "Bold, unpredictable and quietly devastating, ‘Mother’ is Bong’s first masterpiece." Time Out

The director of contemporary Korean classics Memories of Murder and The Host returns with a wickedly twisted tale about what can happen when a mother’s love for her son goes too far.

Part detective story, part melodrama but still a totally original construct with its own shape and style. This darkly comic film from South Korean director Bong Joon-ho has quickly acquired cult status. Maternal love comes into its own as a mother turns super-sleuth to seek justice for her son.

Dir Bong Joon-ho, 2009, South Korea, 129 mins, cert 15.
