Bu-nam has been killed in a hit-and-run accident. "Hiding details now could have consequences later," insists rising politician Koo Myung-hui (Han Seok-kyu), making his guilty son confess to the police - but with the full extent of the crime becoming clearer, decent Myung-hui sinks ever lower in covering up a situation that threatens his political ambitions. As he and Joong-sik circle each other in search of Bu-nam's missing bride Ryun-hwa (Chun Woo-hee), everyone's buried secrets lead to a violent collision of class and politics from which nobody emerges looking pretty. Broodingly paced and elliptically plotted, Lee's film unleashes an iconoclastic onslaught of grief, corruption and revenge.
This screening will be introduced by Anton Bitel. Anton Bitel is a freelance film critic and lecturer in Classical Languages at Oxford University.
