Storyline

A mysterious person calls a young man and informs him that his estranged father has died in a country village. The curious son travels to the town to discover what happened. From there out the audience is led on a thrilling and hauntingly atmospheric journey into the history of the father and the truth about his relationship to the threatening and violent locals. The film is 2h40m, long even for Korean standards, but it is the magically haunting and at the same time threatening atmosphere in the film that sustains the audience interest. Let yourself be carried away... Written by A Dutch fellow

great film which is let down by inconsistency
24 November 2010 | by redrummySee all my reviews

after going through a recent love of korean cinema, i accidentally came across moss and found a great film which died out towards it's conclusion. it does have a hefty run time, which isn't a problem, a great film will engulf you and can you forget time.

i won't spoil the story but the characters as likable as some of them are, too much is given away from their direction, it won't be long until characters play to stereotypes and you'll most likely work out the twist.

the protagonist never does anything to make him likable but you do root for him but as the story shifts between him and his father, the quality of the story telling begins to falter. his background is never explored to any detail but his tenacity to find out his fathers killer is portrayed amicably.

the flashbacks are done well but never reveal anything of great importance and the storyline does have areas which set up the flashback to the point it suspends belief at the conclusion. some questions aren't answered and at times the plot becomes convoluted, it's somewhat easier to ignore the property subplot and just assume he's a evil b*****d.

the makeup for some of the characters never seems over the top though it would've been easier to have different actors.

if you can leave your mind in 1st gear and not get caught into some of the details it is an enjoyable film which can never live up to memories of murder but easily better than some of the recent examples of western cinema
