Salinui chueok: Joon-ho Bong. South Korea. 2003

A ‘whodunit’ unlike any other, this one stayed with me for a while. Stunning mise-en-scene orchestrations coupled with a denial of the narrative pleasure of ‘closure’, an atmospheric story well told, in so many ways. South Korean filmmaker Joon-ho Bong could not better this one IMHO. Watch.

(Note: This has Spanish CC subtitles on the Tube. Click on ‘Settings’ on the player bar and select ‘Auto-translate’ to English. Not perfect, but it is a work-around.)

quietly disturbing. This is a classic whodunit movie, only the audience don’t come away any wiser!

I like how the director chose to tell this story. The main character (stout detective) nicely contrasted with the detective who comes from Seoul.

I am a bit puzzled by the end … he could have shown the girl the photograph of the suspect right..?
