More character study than thriller, with terrific performances by Korean mainstay Song Kang-ho (Snowpiercer) and preternatural beauty Lee Na-young as detectives on the trail of a murderous dog trainer. Working amidst sexism, incompetence, and infighting among the police, Lee's rookie cop begins to identify with the true killer as the case becomes more complicated. Lyrical drama is well written and acted, as the characters struggle to understand each other and inflict pain without knowing why. Even the one committing the murders is an innocent who desires human connection.
A cut above boilerplate Korean thrillers and worth seeking out.
