Focus on Korean Cinema 101' - 2021 - Dialogue: Korean
Director: Lim Sang-su With: Lee Joong-ok, Kim Dae-geun, Kim Yeon-gyo
Horror creeps into social drama in this intriguing debut from South Korean filmmaker Lim Sang-su.
Winter is getting deeper, but Dow suffers from nightmares because he can't find his mother. Then one day, a young man (Ho-Seung) stays at a motel for a long time. Ho-Seung roams around Dow and watches him.
“When Do-woo’s mother goes missing in the dead of winter, everyone pitches in to help him find her. When she fails to turn up, suspicion turns towards him. An atmospheric mystery film - by a new voice in South Korean cinema - that keeps the audience guessing for the duration.” - The Reel Bits
