Bong Joon-ho, director of the much praised South Korean imports MEMORIES OF MURDER and THE HOST, has been receiving a heap of critical love on his latest thriller, MOTHER (see our review here). Distributed by Magnolia Pictures, MOTHER is currently rolling out nationwide, and we have an exclusive video interview with the filmmaker alongside dates of when you can catch it in your town. Read on for the goods!
The film follows an aging single mom (a superb Hye-ja Kim), whose 27-year-old son is still quite dependent on her and has trouble functioning normally in society. After a night out, the son walks home alone and finds himself caught up in and accused of the murder of a young high school girl. His arrest causes his protective matriarch to become a detective in her own right, stopping at nothing to prove her offspring’s innocence.
Here’s the first installment of our Bong hit, where he discusses working with his acclaimed actress.
