Time 21:10
Date 07/11/17
Price £8

After opening 2013's London Korean Film Festival with his feature debut Hide and Seek, writer/director Huh Jung is back with his chilling and melancholic study of maternity and loss.

Hee-yeon (Yum Jung-ah) moves to the foot of Mount Jang, Busan with her husband, daughter and demented mother-in-law, but is still haunted by the disappearance of her son five years earlier. Eventually, Hee-yeon is drawn to the local legend of a monstrous tiger that lures people into its cave by imitating the voices of their loved ones.

Taking his cues equally from the popular Korean folktale ‘The Sun and the Moon’, and Hideo Nakata’s J-horror Dark Water (2002), Huh’s chiller is a melancholic study of maternity and loss, while using echoes, mirrors and recurring scenes to reveal cinema itself as the medium of mimicry.
