DAY 23: Your Favorite Thriller/Mystery Film – Mother (Bong Joon-Hoo, 2009)
Mother is not your typical mystery film. It gives you a weird introduction, presents you the mystery, and it will lead you to one conclusion right after the other only to find out that it will introduce you to another mystery. The movie is pretty long, but I don’t feel that it is different to sit through. The technical aspects of the film were spot on thus, it gives you this creepy atmosphere that is every inch effective.
The real star of the show though is Hye-ja Kim whose chilling performance is the whole foundation of the movie. Right from the opening scene of the film up until the last few moments, it was definitely her show. Definitely a must watch. I’ve recommended it to others already, and they enjoyed the film as well. 🙂
