Last night, too sick to go out, I decided to watch a DVD I picked up a while ago called Mother. I had meant to see this when it was in theaters last year, but never got around to it. I recall that it was top in the box office for a while.
The movie revolves around the mother of a young man who is a bit slow. The son is accused of a murder and tricked into signing a confession, though he does not recall committing the crime. The mother makes it her personal mission to discover the truth and have her son's name cleared.
I really enjoyed this movie. There were many unexpected plot twists and I thought the ending was surprising, yet perfectly fitting for the movie. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys thrillers, or anyone looking for a good taste of Korean culture. I think this is an excellent movie, and a fair representation of small town life in South Korea.
incidentally, I just organized all my movie posts into one category here, if you're interested in reading more about movies I've seen in Korea.
