very good historic mystery/ horror
10 March 2008 | by (downtown, Michigan) – See all my reviews

The English title of this movie is "Shadows in the Palace". An historic piece--part murder mystery, part horror--in the time of the Josean dynasty in Korea, the setting is at the palace nunnery where all the women have sworn chastity in service of the king. Not all are inclined to remain chaste, and we begin to see a world inhabited by ruthless ambition and abject cruelty in the competition among the king's wives to have a son declared heir to the throne. A murder occurs and a single, brave women pursues the truth, even as more murders follow, and a malevolent spirit seems to be afoot in and about the palace. Good acting, costumes and sets energize the story. Some of the violence in the film is not for the squeamish.
