Darum geht's

Die Leiche einer jungen Frau wird gefunden. Hauptverdächtiger ist der 27-jährige Won Bin, Sohn einer allein erziehenden, dominanten Mutter. Um seine angebliche Unschuld zu beweisen macht sich die grenzenlos liebende Mutter auf die erbarmungslose Suche nach dem Mörder.

Darum sehenswert

Before making history by nabbing four Oscars for Parasite, South Korean master Bong Joon-ho made this devastating genre hybrid. A startling, slippery thriller fusing elements of melodrama, comedy, and horror, it stars the stunning Hye-ja Kim as one of the most unforgettable mothers in cinema.

This is one of those great and rare movies that has a byzantine plot full of surprises, but is also a powerful character study of a bizarre and driven woman.

In whichever tonality, the brilliant mix of melancholia and outrageousness in Mother suggests, uncannily, a remake of Billy Wilder’s The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970), in its unseen, complete, original version.
