    Beutiful :)

    Honestly one of the all-around most impressive films I've ever seen, definitely Bong Joon-ho's best.

    பார்த்ததில் மிகவும் ரசித்தது : 014.


    Mother – 2009 இல் வெளிவந்த மிக சிறந்த KOREAN திரைப்படம்.

    Memories of Murder இயக்குனரின் மற்றுமொரு மிக நல்ல படைப்பு தலைப்பே கூறும் தன் வெகுளி மகன் மீது தாய் கொண்ட அளவுகடந்த பாசமே படம் இந்திய திரைபடகளின் தாய் மகன் பாச விஷயங்கள் சுத்தமாக இல்லாமல் ஒரு தாய் பற்றிய படம் பார்ப்பது அரிது (நான் கடவுள் போல).

    தவறாக கொலை பழி விழிந்து சிறைக்கு சென்ற மகனை காப்பாற்ற உண்மை கொலையாளியை தேடி செல்லும் தாயின் விறுவிறுப்பான திரைக்கதை கொண்ட படம்.

    ஒவ்வொரு காட்சிளும் ஒரு தாயாகவே பிரதிபலிக்கும் அப்பெண் அட்டகாசம் தன் இயலாமை, கோபம், பாசம், வெறுப்பு…

    Probably my least favorite of the Bong Joon-Ho films I've seen, and it's still pretty damn good.

    A gripping character study and thriller, centred around one woman's quest to prove her son innocent of a murder charge. Featuring a couple of truly terrific performances.

    "Mother" is an alluring piece of work, an artful mystery that melds clever plotting with resourceful camera work, with sympathetic characters that are fascinatingly morbid. South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho follows his monster extravaganza "The Host" (2006), in firm control of his medium in a different genre, proving once again that conventions need not always confine.

    After a night of drinking and waiting for his long time friend, Do-joon (Won Bin), finds himself in some serious trouble. The next morning,…

    Very long, very annoyingly unreal. The dialog just.. and i know this is really subjective, but the dialog just isn't realistic. I kept thinking 'no one would ever say that, or react like that'. Characters are inconsistant, and get a personality makeover in the middle of the movie. I just don't like this. They talk about unexpectedness as a virtue in a film. The things that happen are unexpected because they don't make sense.

    Not sure why this film is so well received. Certainly, there are good performances and good direction, but the film moves at a funereal pace. Quite why the audience are supposed to care about the batty mother/son relationship at the heart film was never established.

    There's technically nothing "wrong" with the movie. It's well-structured, nicely acted and it looks great. Even though the reveal at this end isn't necessarily a shock, it's more about the depths a mother will go for her son. Kim Hye-ja does a pretty swell job with her character's development over the course of the film. But, on the other hand, Bong Joon-Ho's need to toss in the dark, off-kilter humor distracts and occasionally undercuts the darker elements a little too…




    One of his weaker movies, really. Still delivers visually beautiful film, but it's just no match for his other work..

    ¿Que seria capaz de hacer una madre por su hijo?, bueno aquí tenemos una teoría de lo que podría pasar...... Una solida película que empieza siendo un drama y terminao convirtiéndose en un interesante thriller con unos giros de guion bastante interesantes.

    Me ha parecido que la mezcla de humor negro con thriller de suspenso a veces no funciona bien y debo decir que el personaje del hijo de la protagonista me ha sacado de quicio un par de veces…
