One day, the only son of famous news anchor HAN Kyung-bae, disappears without a trace. Soon, the kidnapper calls the mother demanding a $100,000 ransom. The police assign a veteran inspector to the case and assemble a top-notch task force to work under his command. But the kidnapper constantly outwits the police and continues calling the parents with yet more instructions for the money drop.Written by
This film was very intense. Although it was not violent or graphic, it had many psychologically intense and stressful scenes. And it offers a real glimpse of life in Seoul; the relentless traffic, endless high rise apartments and the fast-paced life of the urban sprawl. As a parent, I could really empathize with the characters. Because it was based on a true story, the whole event takes on more gravity. Unlike many other recent child-kidnapping movies, i.e. with Denzil Washington, or Mel Gibson's Ransom, this "The Voice of a Murderer" is not a Hollywood movie. There are no heroes. It has a fresh take on a familiar plot, with very believable characters.
