Memories of Murder

살인의 추억

Directed by Bong Joon-ho
South Korea / 127 mins / M18 – Sexual Scenes

SYNOPSIS

It is 1986 in South Korea. A slew of young women have been raped and murdered, with their bodies left out in the open to be found. Park Doo-man, a local detective is on the case. During the investigation, tardy police work and corrupt activities bring Park no closer to catching the killer. Inspired by true events, this haunting tour de force from acclaimed director Bong Joon-ho remains an exemplary piece of Korean Cinema.

collapse

Memories of Murder is Bong’s sardonic commentary on the socio-political histories of South Korea. His second feature film marks the breakout relationship between him and leading-man Song Kang-ho. They would go on to collaborate in Bong’s later films, such as The Host (2003) and Parasite (2019).

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Bong Joon-ho is the first South Korean director to have won the Palme d’Or with his compelling thriller, Parasite (2019). Bong’s films have consistently crossed transnational boundaries. In 2013, Bong directed his first English-language feature film, Snowpiercer. His Netflix feature film, Okja (2017) also competed for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
