This is one of the finest examples of Korean film making- an outstanding mix of comic, disbelief, suspense, culture and "who dunnit"- it is just outstanding. The "Mother" is played by an amazing actress who manages to portray every spectrum of emotion and age. She looks old and worn down by life and the constant goings on of her son. Then in another scene, she looks radiant. When her son is taken away by the police she is so distraught and the scene is heartbreaking.
Her "son" portays this incredible idiotic being and it's hard to belive he can function in life without her at his side, in fact the film proves that he can't.
She takes the commitments of motherhood to a whole new level- a MUST see if you love Korean and Asian film making.
