top notch psychological thriller
20 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Young-eun develops a crush on her high school physical ed teacher, Jun-ki. Jun-ki initially finds her attractive, but then tries to break off the developing relationship after scandalous rumors threaten his career. This is easier said than done, since Young-eun becomes obsessed and refuses to let him go.

This certainly isn't the first movie with a similar theme, but there's a lot to like about Innocent Thing, foremost among them being an outstanding performance by Jo Bo-ah as Young-eun. She seemingly without effort displays a wide range of emotions, from cute and flirty to dark and menacing. The movie could not succeed without a strong performance from her, and Jo Bo-ah delivers splendidly.

I normally would not like the disjointed editing that frequently makes it impossible to tell whether a scene is really happening, or is simply a hallucination in Young-eun's psychotic mind. But in this movie I thought it was a great way to allow the viewer to experience Young-eun's descent into madness. We think that she is a cold-blooded murderer who will let nothing come between her and her obsession, but then discover that at least one of the murders never happened at all. How about the other one? I'm not sure, and I doubt that Young-eun knows either. It could be murder, it could be an insane revenge fantasy that never happened.

There is a lot of moral ambiguity in the movie. Jun-ki starts out with an indefensible attraction to a high school girl, but at least never lets it develop into a real affair. The pregnant wife starts out as an innocent victim of her husband's unfaithfulness and Young- eun's jealousy, but then commits what would be a serious offense while trying to hush things up. Depending on your point of view, Young-eun is either a menacing psycho or the victim of Jun-ki's lust and the wife's attempted cover-up.

I suggest you see Innocent Thing with friends. It's entertaining enough to keep you all on the edge of your seats, and there will certainly be a lot to talk about afterward.
