Was looking forward to this film after enjoying the director's earlier films, Memories of murder, The host n Snowpiercer.
The film is about a mentally challenged kid who is also being overprotected by his single mother who is a specialist in herbs n acupuncture.
The kid is arrested n charged with the murder of a young girl but the mother believes he is innocent n she goes out to prove his innocence.
The best part about this film is the acting by the lady who played the mother.
Another good aspect is the details.
When the dead body of the girl is kept on the terrace of a dilapidated house for the whole town to see, we as viewers really wants to know the reason n the reason is explained towards the end well suiting.
The direction n cinematography were brilliant. The only problem was the editing. Found it to be a bit slow n long.
