Piazza Grande: Crazy Midnight
Salinui chueok (Memories of Murder)
Hwaseong, 1986. Following a series of unsolved murder cases, the local police is flanked by an inspector from Seoul, who investigates the common elements within the crimes.
Widely regarded as a masterwork of Korean cinema, it’s that rare film that so accurately captures the social and political reality of a country and a time period, that is to say Korea on the eve of major political and economic upheaval. Working for the first time with Song Kang-ho, Bong delivers, under the guise of a thriller that embraces and simultaneously subverts genre conventions, a masterful film that signals what is to come.Jérémy Segay
