Overly long drama with hard to relate to characters. Bleak, but strong sense of artistry. The "mystery" aspect, sadly, isn't.
Plays in a very interesting way with the thriller genre, replacing the lead with a fragile woman, and also making her quite weird, she is relatable as a mother and you want her to succeed, and at the same time she has a grotesque relation with her son and has done some very questionable things in the past. The tone of the movie is odd, it's not trying to feel completely real, when things start to get really heavy it breaks the tension by pushing the viewer out of the movie with weird surreal moments.
This was a great example of the lengths some mother's go to protect their child. I didn't expect it to be funny at times and turned out to be a great movie overall with some pretty good acting. Messed up story but worth watching if you like these movies.
An enthralling, twisty and funny Korean dark comedy with solid performances.
Country: South Korea
Vista con: dos amigos
Intención: ver películas coreanas, que dicen que estan de p.madre
Lugar: En casa. Sofá. Filmin.
Pagué? : SI - Precio: Tarifa plana de Filmin.
Presentación de personajes: mi reacción es "PUTOS COREANOS, qué PUTO MIEDO DE ABUELA". Esa mujer bailando por el campo, aix... El chico tontico mu bien presentado, un amigo que se aprovecha de él y cómo no una madre sobreprotectora.
El conflicto: Aparece un cadáver muerto (no podría…
A compelling family drama that beautifully transforms into a clever, sinister and unsettling mystery film, that tastefully touches on the inadequacy of the authorities (a reoccurring theme I've seen in Korean films). I wasn't expecting a film of this caliber going in, and I'm beginning to believe that Bong Joon-ho is a genius. That's twice Bong Joon-ho has made a film that I believe all movies should strive to live up to. I watched this film without the company of…
A feeble-minded man who lives with his mother is accused of the murder of a young woman. His mother certain that her son is innocent goes on a quest to clear her son's name. Good film about the sacrifices parents make for their children.
요즘 영화를 많이 보지 못했네. 세상에 한달이 넘었다니, 반성이다.
영화는 쏟아져 나오는데, 나는 이렇게 뒤쳐지다니, 더더욱 반성이다.
숙제 같은 영화 '마더'를 보았다.
볼때마다 첫 시퀀스가 너무 간떨려서 혼자는 도저히 못보겠다
하다가 결국 봤네. 뭐, 보다보니 첫 시퀀스만 그랬다.
첫 한 시간은 솔직히,
아. 길다. 음. '살인의 추억'이랑 똑같네.
그러면서 별 감흥없이 봤다.
그건 취향의 문제이기도 한데, 나는 그냥 봉준호 감독 스타일의 유머가 별로 재미없다. 한번은 그냥 보겠는데 매번 반복되는 똑같은 인물 구성, 유머, 형식이 별로다.
내게는 그저 과장된 설정 같은…
In a time in which male leads are flourishing in the Korean crime genre, it seems fitting that women were beginning to step up to the plate. Here we have Kim Hye-ja playing an unnamed widow living alone with her intellectually disabled son. When he is charged with the murder of a local schoolgirl, his mother, horrified and assuming injustice, goes on a hunt to unravel the story and find out who really was to blame.
Prior to the start,…
Felt like a longer, well-made, One hour crime drama. Only, instead of being cheesy and American, it was Korean and very well-acted.
It's a disturbing and sometimes disturbingly funny film that further cements Joon-Ho Bong (The Host) as one of the greats.
