Synopsis

Jongsu, a frustrated introvert, has his life complicated by the appearance of two people: Haemi, a spirited woman who offers romantic possibility, and, Ben, a wealthy young man she befriends. When Jongsu learns of Ben’s mysterious hobby and Haemi disappears, his obsessions begin to mount.

Our take

An international arthouse hit for South Korea’s Lee Chang-dong (Poetry, Secret Sunshine), this feat of foreboding—part ghost story, part critique of contemporary capitalism—is something startling and strangely sinister. A riveting adaptation of the great Haruki Murakami, co-starring Steven Yeun.
